1. Clemson beats Alabama

The success of this season hinges on Clemson beating Alabama, at least in many ways.

We all know it’s coming.

Clemson-Alabama Part IV is hitting a stadium near you for a College Football Playoff match up in less than seven months.

The Crimson Tide currently lead the recent series 2-1. The winner of this game has gone on to win the National Championship the past three season. Two of the games, of course, were played for the National Championship.

I’m not sure if we will see the Tide in the semifinals or the finals, but you know they’re coming.

In my opinion, I think Clemson finds a way to get revenge. From that NFL-caliber defensive line to the matured skill players on the offensive side of the ball, I think the Tigers have what it takes to beat Alabama and compete for a National Championship.

It will not be easy. You have to basically play a near flawless game, but I think it’s happening this year.

Those are our way-too-early bold predictions for the upcoming Clemson football season.
