Alabama Will Pound Its Way to National Championship


John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The doubt each organisation will have to answer when it faces a Alabama Crimson Tide is: Can we stop a run? The answer in a inhabitant semifinal diversion opposite a Michigan State Spartans, and again in a inhabitant championship presumably opposite a Clemson Tigers, will be no. 

Alabama’s glorious rushing conflict goes over Heisman Trophy leader Derrick Henry. Sure, a 6’3″ 242-pound timber is a bucket to move down, and he’s shown extraordinary continuance and stamina, though Bama dominates before Henry even touches a ball.

Seniors Ryan Kelly and Dominick Jackson anchor what is expected a best descent line in a country. As good as a Spartans invulnerability is, it has nonetheless to face a section as widespread as Bama‘s Big Uglies.

The Spartans are seventh in a nation opposite a run, that is no fluke. That said, Bama doesn’t only move a 26th-ranked rushing offenseNick Saban‘s organisation is also vigourous defensively. 

The Crimson Tide are ranked No. 1 opposite a run. The opening between them and a second-place Boston College Eagles is roughly 9 yards per game. The multiple of a harsh run diversion and extreme invulnerability slows a diversion down while it wears out Alabama opponents. 

It’s a regulation a Spartans won’t be means to resolve.


Clemson should hit off a Oklahoma Sooners behind higher quarterback play from Deshaun Watson. He and Baker Mayfield should put on a uncover in their semifinal matchup, though Watson finished third in a Heisman Trophy voting for a reason.

He’ll be one of a favorites to win a endowment in 2016, and his opening opposite Oklahoma will serve H2O a seed he planted via a unchanging deteriorate and ACC Championship Game. A virtuoso performance is on a approach from Watson in what should be an interesting diversion opposite a Sooners.

The prophecy for a final measure is: Clemson 44, Oklahoma 38.


As good as Watson is, a Crimson Tide should have an even easier time opposite a Tigers than they will with a Spartans. Clemson’s gusto for branch a round over is a finish no-no opposite Alabama. Believe it or not, Clemson is minus-2 on a deteriorate in turnover margin. It’s bizarre a organisation is still 13-0 with that form of round security.

Alabama’s invulnerability will find a approach to force turnovers opposite Clemson, and it will make a Tigers compensate with prolonged and brief drives spearheaded by a widespread belligerent game. Saban’s organisation has finished what a few new Tide squads could not: It has found a temperament as a loyal smashmouth organisation that wins with physicality over style.

Bama will win a inhabitant championship in a frisk over Clemson. Expect a final measure in a area of 34-13.
