4. Clemson comes out strong
The Tigers haven’t come out very strong in the first quarter this season.
Clemson only scored three points in the first quarter against Notre Dame. The Tigers will need a stronger offensive start playing against Alabama.
I’m not convinced that the Crimson Tide are going to come out and take a quick 21-0 lead. But, you can be sure that Bama will come out ready to go.
I think Clemson breaks a few tendencies and tries to find a way to break off a couple of explosive plays early.
