during the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship Game at University of Phoenix Stadium on January 11, 2016 in Glendale, Arizona.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama may have won its fourth national championship in seven seasons, but for the students in Tuscaloosa the party never gets old.

Crowds of people poured out from bars onto University Boulevard after Alabama beat Clemson 45-40 on Monday to win the national title. They yelled the school’s chant, “Roll Tide!” and its league, “SEC!”

Tuscaloosa police were keeping an eye on the postgame crowd to make sure the party didn’t turn destructive or violent.

Clemson was playing for the national title for the first time in 34 years. Some students had tears in their eyes as they left bars there but also said they were proud of a team that won 14 games for the first time.

Both teams are set to head home from the game in Glendale, Arizona, on Tuesday.
