Clemson's national title win a big hit on social media

Clemson's stunning last-second 35-31 victory over Alabama in the College Football Playoff national championship game on Monday obviously was a hit on social media.

Naturally, the big victory, which gave the Tigers their first national title since 1981, was a cause for celebration among Clemson football alumni.

There was also plenty of reaction from around the sports world, including a high-profile Clemson fan. Many regarded the game as one of the best national title games ever.

Then there was Pitt's Twitter account, which both congratulated the Tigers for their title and offered a reminder that the Panthers handed them their only loss this season.

And some notable Alabama alumni were also gracious in defeat.
