I say it's a pick'em match. Pretty even. I never count out Saban.

To me, there's nothing that impressive about Hurts. He looked awful against Washington the other night. Fortunately for him his defense made a couple of key plays that won them the game.

I always favor the more balanced team in any matchup.

Alabama plays a lot of good defensive-oriented teams in the SEC, and it played a more offensive-oriented team in Washington, but it rarely plays a team that has both a potent defense and offense. Alabama's focus will be on shutting down Clemson's offense, but Clemson will have an easier time making Alabama's offense one-dimensional than vice versa, imo.

I thought Clemson had the advantage over OSU because they had more ways to win. I think Clemson also has the advantage over OSU because it has more ways to win.

Too bad for them it is not OSU they'll be playing again then!

And still lost.All of that means nothing when you take an L. Hell they had more offensive yards on Troy State and still won by 6 pts.

They put up 495 on NCST and they still went into over time.
