Not a huge shock that we get these two teams meeting in the final game of the season. Clemson has looked vulnerable at time but so strong right now.
Alabama basically polished off Oklahoma in the first quarter…it was impressive. The game wound up being closer but the Crimson Tide rolled again.
Alabama Crimson Tide
If you watched only the first quarter of the game against Oklahoma you might have thought this is the best team in college football history. They looked that good as they built a 28-0 lead. Offense and defense they were just dominant.
The 34 points they allowed were a season high but there is no reason for concern. The defense was on cruise control and they were playing one of the best offenses in the country with a Heisman winner at quarterback. Sure they could have been tighter and won 49-10 but still.
On offense Tua was magnificent again. Whenever he drops back there are mismatches all over the field. He was 24 for 27 and with 4 TD passes, had more of those than incompletions. They ran the ball well against Oklahoma nbut that might be a lot harder against an elite Clemson defense.
Unlike Alabama it took a while for the Tigers dominance to be obvious against Notre Dame. The game was 3-3 at the end of the first quarter but 20 points in the second quarter put it out of reach. I think the Tigers played very well but not their best game.
Both teams have strong defenses and the big question is how freshman QB Trevor Lawrence is going to hold up against the ferocious Alabama unit. He is a good athlete but not mobile like other past Clemson QBs. His numbers against Notre Dame were really good and they ran the ball effectively.
Clemson at the very least has the second best defense in the country. They are have some monsters up front that should win battles and give themselves a chance to cover and blitz and try and get Tua to actually make some mistakes. If they can they can upset Crimson Tide again.

This is a great Clemson team but it was different when Deshaun Watson was the quarterback. It is harder to expect Lawrence to stand up the same way.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Alabama -6
It is so chalky to go with the Crimson Tide and I normally hate that sort of stuff but winning by a TD with this team seems inevitable.
It is not going to be a walk but even if it is decided in the second half the Crimson Tide have to be the play.
