Alabama 31 Clemson 17

I just think Alabama's defense is too good, but we'll see if Watson and his WRs can make the plays to win it.

Maybe they should be intimidated, but after being so close last year, I feel like Clemson will actually believe they are going to win. I think that will help them.

Bama 31-24

They're defense is in beast mode.

The offense is the question mark. Can they start fast?

Can they get any semblance of a passing game going?

Venables will load the box to stop the run, so passing success for Bama is going to be critical.

I think Clemson has a real shot because their defense has really played well lately. I'm still a bit concerned about their O, but this is where DeShaun seems to really shine in these big games.

IF the Clemson D can slow down their run game a bit, they have a real shot.

You guys see this article?

Pretty candid

"Clemson's right tackle is atrocious RT"

"Hurts can't throw"

"Any Clemson gameplan will revolve around forcing freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts to beat the Tigers with his arm."


That's what I said above. Bama has to pass somewhat effectively to win this game.

Daron Payne, just a 5 star DT that no one talks about, with the sack.

These D-lines are both loaded.

Smart for Clemson to go for this on 4th down.

Have to maximize every drive against a D like this.

Shocked that Clemson didn't go QB run there. Horrendous attempt at a block by Leggett as well. Fine if they go for it, but need a better call than that on 4th and less than a yard

I love the "sec graduate" patches. It's special that they call this out specifically.

Would you have preferred a slow developing run play?

What a block on the edge by OJ Howard. Big time play. TD doesn't happen without that block

That was not the way I wanted this game to start.

If Clemson can't stop the run, they're done.

Um where is the flag for holding? 88 just tackled the Clemson DB!

Bo Scarborough looks like Jaylon Smith on steroids running the ball. Why didn't we think of that?

Well they pretty much did the same thing against Pitt...twice and didn't execute.

Herby called it a great block but I say it was a great tackle...Holy crap how do you not call that at the point of attack

You're just not used to seeing that from a tight end the last few years. That's what they call a pancake. Hands inside, great block. Hopefully see a few of those from Brock Wright

Both these teams look like men out there. Hope Balis can work some magic.
