2018 College Football Championship Preview: Clemson versus Alabama
There can only be one, both Clemson and Alabama come into the championship game undefeated but there can only be one winner. Both rosters are very evenly matches with both teams occupying the first and second spots in our rankings the whole season. Which team has the edge going into tonight's game?
The quarterback situation for both teams is excellent with Trevor Lawrence matching the preseason hype as the number 1 high school quarterback in the country and sixth ranked prospect of all time. Tua's ankle looks good if the semi final is anything to go by and his experience combined with what was one of the greatest quarterback seasons in Alabama history gives Alabama the edge.
Defensively Clemson takes the edge, Alabama has not been as dominant defensively as they have been in the past. Clemson held an impressive Notre Dame team to 3 points last week with pass rush after pass rush. If Clemson goes up by more than a score, Alabama is in trouble.
Clemson takes the defensive edge while Alabama is better offensively due to the quarterback situation. As far as coaching goes, both Saban and Swinney have proved they are at the top of college football. The difference for the game will be the team with more close game experience. Clemson faced adversity early in the season and persevered through it while Alabama would have lost the SEC championship if not for backup quarterback and former starter, Jalen Hurts.
Have a feeling Clemson takes this one.
Clemson 23-20 Alabama.
