The Clemson football team will take on the Alabama Crimson Tide Monday. Here are some areas Bama can exploit vs. the Tigers.
The Clemson football team will take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Championship Monday night.
As we head into the National Championship, here are a few areas that Bama might be able to exploit against Clemson.
We’ll have a post up a little later today talking about the areas that the Tigers can exploit against the Tide. But, first, we’ll start with the opponents.
- Tua vs. the Clemson secondary
Tua Tagovailoa is one of the nation’s best quarterbacks. He has the ability to make all the threes and can tear secondaries apart. The Tigers have been very inconsistent in the secondary and if the defensive line can’t apply pressure, it could be a long night for the Tiger defense.
In addition to the inconsistency of the defensive backfield, you have to realize that Alabama also has the type of wide receiver corp that has given the Tigers trouble. Jerry Jeudy is a speed play-maker. Henry Ruggs and Devonta Smith, who is now healthy, are also great options for Tagovailoa.
- Creating pressure
This may or may not be an advantage for Alabama. The Clemson offensive line has been inconsistent at times this season and I believe that the Tigers could struggle if Bama brings a lot of pressure.
Creating pressure may also hurt the Tigers’ rushing attack, which has been slow to get going at times.
The Crimson Tide probably are a bit more physical, but it is very close, in my opinion.
