It’s a rematch for the National Championship.
The Clemson Tigers pulled off a backdoor cover in last years BCS Championship, but it was the Crimson Tide who came out victorious. Will history repeat itself?
Alabama Crimson Tide
The Crimson Tide have proven their dominance time and time again this season.
Saturday was just another game for Alabama, as they rolled over the Huskies 24-7, covering the -13 spread. Alabama saw the Huskies strike first in the contest, but held them scoreless for 3 plus quarters after the touchdown.
Covering has been a norm for this Crimson Tide team.
Alabama enters play a solid 10-4 ATS this season, as they’ve covered in their last 2 games.
Expect Alabama to do what they did against Washington and really wear this team out. While the Crimson Tide offense wasn’t necessarily overpowering, they slowed the game down and continued to dominate time of possession.
Defensively, they swarm to the football and will have to get to QB Deshaun Watson here often if they hope to keep this Clemson offense out of the end zone.
The Clemson Tigers getting a shot at revenge here is a beautiful thing for this senior class.
After Clemson fell in the title game last season, getting a chance to get back there and take on the team who defeated you isn’t something that comes around very often.
Clemson had no troubles at all with the Buckeyes on Saturday, taking it to them 31-0. The Tigers dominated in all fashions, as their defense had the Buckeyes on edge all night.
They’ll need to do that and then some here on Monday, as this Alabama offense is a lot more physical and the offensive line is a lot more bigger than Ohio States.
Offensively, the Tigers will look for a repeat of what they did last season. Watson and company found plenty of success with the deep ball, something the Crimson Tide defense typically doesn’t allow.
