    CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson fans will have the chance to honor their national championship football team during a parade Saturday.

    The Tigers (14-1) upset No. 1 Alabama (14-1) on Monday night with a 35-31 victory in Tampa, Florida. Clemson overcame a 14-point deficit to win the championship rematch with the Crimson Tide. Deshaun Watson connected threw a 2-yard TD pass to Hunter Renfrow with one second left for the winning score.

    It was Clemson's second national title and first since 1981.

    Gov. Nikki Haley, a Clemson graduate, ordered a Clemson flag to fly on the Statehouse pole Tuesday below the U.S. and state flags.
