The top-ranked UConn Huskies clinched a berth in the championship game by beating Stanford in the national semifinals in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Huskies overcame a sluggish start to take a 28-24 halftime lead over the Cardinal.

They found their groove in the second half and went on for their 39th win of the season.

The Huskies meet Notre Dame (38-0) on Tuesday night for the national championship, marking the first time two undefeated teams have even met in the title game.

UConn is seeking a record ninth national championship.
