Monday. Monday. Monday. The national championship game deserves not one, not two, but three mentions of the name of the day. And it’s a not just any ordinary game, it’s a gosh darn rematch. Alabama and Clemson will once again meet at the grandest stage of them all. Dabo vs. Nick. Watson vs. Hurts. Scarbrough vs. Gallman. God I have goosebumps thinking about this game.
How’d they get there? By laying the smackdown on their opponents, that’s how. With Alabama, after giving up the initial score, won 24-7, and took the Washington Huskies to the dog pound. And with Clemson, well they shut out Ohio State, 31-0. Not only did they shut them out, but they were the first to do it since the 1980’s. Impressive victories by both ball clubs in big games.
The big question mark is how does Deshaun Watson rebound after last year’s loss? Watson was pretty good last year, but didn’t have Mike Williams, a star wideout for the Tigers. Williams could be the X-Factor in this game and could give the Tigers the spark they will need to get things going this time around.
Another name to watch is Bo Scarbrough. This kid earned his carries last week by running up and down the Washington defense. And if Alabama wants to contend, Scarbrough needs to show up.
So my pick is from the heart, because hey, why not.
Clemson 38-Alabama 35
Deshaun Watson gets the title that eluded him last season.
This concludes the college football season and stay handsome all.
