College Football Playoff National Champioship Preview

The stage is set and #1 Clemson is ready to face off #2  Alabama for all the marbles. The National Championship is finally here. We are all hoping that this will be a great game, unlike most of the bowl games.
Clemson is the only undefeated team and has been #1 week after week, but once again they are underdogs. This is puzzling because Clemson has been the best team in football 635850100243740361-ACC-Championship-Football-bboatwri-greenvillenews.com-56this year. Alabama is favored seven points, which means the Tigers have them right were they want the. No one has given this team any respect, and this will be a benefit for Clemson. Deshaun Watson has been awesome this year. He is the best quarterback in the country and is already writing his legacy in college football history as a sophomore. In the first half of the Orange Bowl, Watson had to do everything for Clemson. It is remarkable they were in the game at half time, but he is that great. In the second half Wayne Gallman and the other Tiger running backs decided to show up and they ran all over the Sooners. Watson and Gallman need to get the running game going and be creative with their play calls to keep this massive Bama defensive line on their toes.
This may have been Nick Saban’s best coaching job of his career. Many people including me thought this was going to be more of a transition year after loosing a lot of talent to the NFL, but as Alabama does time and time again, they prove me wrong. During their blowout www.usnewsCotton Bowl victory over the Spartans, quarterback Jake Coker had a coming out party. Coker played the best game of his career in the bright lights, and proved all of the doubters wrong. I believe Alabama will go back to what they do best in the Championship, which is to run the ball. Coker had a great game in all, but when you have a 6’3 beast in the back field, who is also the Heisman Trophy winner… feed the ball to him. Derrick Henry is going to have to get a lot of carries and keep Clemson’s high powered offense off the field.
This will be a great game and a Championship to remember. Alabama’s kryptonite has always been dual-threat quarterbacks. Guess what, they are facing the best running quarterback and just the best quarterback in the country. Deshaun Watson will give Alabama’s defense fits and Clemson will win the College Playoff National Championship.
Prediction: Clemson 35, Alabama 34

Orange Bowl Preview

The wait is finally over, New Year’s Eve has come, and every sports fan should know that the second College Football Playoff is here. Clemson the imgres-5number one team in the country faces off against number four Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, winner advances to the National Championship. In my opinion this is the better game out of the two semi-finals. We are all going to witness a fantastic quarterback battle, the best we have seen since last year’s Rose Bowl between Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston. According to the Heisman voters, Deshaun Watson of Clemson, and Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma, are the top two quarterbacks in the country. Clemson has had a dream undefeated season, and completely got rid of that word they all hate, “Clemsoning” I guess the new definition of “Clemsoning” is going undefeated, winning a conference championship, and beating Notre Dame. The Tigers have constantly been the best team in the country.
Ever since Oklahoma’s bad loss to rival Texas, no one has been playing better ball then they have. Baker Mayfield has channeled his inner Johnny Football, and has created magic. Mayfield is one of the most excitingimgres-6 players to watch, and he always makes something out of nothing. The Sooners are going to have to get their run game going. Sophomore running back, Samaje Perine needs to have a game. Clemson’s defense is the most physical defense the Sooners have faced all year.
I believe that this will be one of the greatest games of the year, but Clemson’s defense will force a crucial turnover late, and Clemson will win the Orange Bowl, and advance to the National Championship.
Prediction: Clemson 43, Oklahoma 42
