Alabama Vs. Clemson Part III
Rematch round 3
Alright here we go the two heavyweights of college football are at it again! Everyone reading this article obviously knows the story and results of the first two games and how both of them came down to the last play. Will it be the same way this time? I do not think so for several reasons.
1. This is a pretty angry Crimson Tide team that is going to be out for blood after the Iron Bowl loss.
2. Clemson definitely has the better Quarterback in this game
3. Saban in rematch games.
4. Auburns defense is much better than Clemsons.
Why Alabama can win the game.
Alabama can win the game under a few more scenarios then Clemson can. Alabama has the ability defensively to limit Clemsons offense and slow them down more then any team they have seen. Alabama can run the football and keep the ball away from Clemsons offense. With that being said though if Jalen Hurts isn't able to keep the defense honest and struggled with passing the ball downfield like he has the past 2 games it is going to be a long night for Alabama.
Why Clemson can win the game.
Clemson can win the ball game, but they really only have one way to do it on their own. That is great quarterback play and great play by their o line. They have to keep their fast pace up tempo going and keep Alabama's defense which has been banged up off balance. If they can't do this they are going to have to pray for the uncharacteristic turnovers and bad snaps you saw in the Auburn game, which likely will not happen.
What will happen.
This game really is too close to call on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the most confident I am on my pick I would give it a 2. Either one of these teams can potentially blow the game open and make it not as close as the two previous games. What I do think will happen though you will see an angry Tide rise. The running game is established and Jalen Hurts makes the plays he has to make to make. Decided halfway thru the 4th quarter when Dabo has to use his last timeout allowing the Bama ground game to eat up clock. Not on the last play like the previous games.
