Alabama’s spring semester begins on Jan. 13, two days after the championship game. Clemson‘s spring semester begins this Wednesday. Therefore, the Tigers must practice in accordance with the NCAA’s 20-hour weekly rule, which limits the a team’s athletic activities during the spring.
According to the rule, Clemson will be restricted to a maximum of four hours of practice and team meeting time per day when the spring semester begins. On the other hand, Alabama can hold unlimited practices and team meetings in preparation for the title game.
