I think this has the potential to be the best playoff yet as far as match up. Year 1, the sugar bowl was great, obviously, but the rose bowl saw Oregon boat race FSU and Ohio state dominated oregona for the title (great in my opinion lol)
year 2 the Clemson vs Oklahoma game was tight for the first half and Clemson took over the second half. Bama vs MSU was just awful. However the championship game was a dandy!
I think the Clemson vs OSU matchup will be a great one! Clemsons offense and passing game vs Ohio states defense and their secondary should be a sight to see. I feel with 27 days to prepare that Urban will put together a great offensive game plan to attack clemsons D that has given up some big yardage high scoring games. Turnovers will likely be the key in this one.
Bama has looked like a monster at times this year with their ridiculous defense. But Peterson is a hell of a coach with near a month to prepare with a innovative offense that's nothing like Bama has seen this year. I still feel Bama wins and just wear them down come the 4th quarter, but it wouldn't surprise me one big to see Washington come out swinging and make a game of or even pull the upset. Obviously limiting turnovers and not allowing Bama defense or special teams to kill ya is huge in being able to pull it off. I'd like to see wahsingtons passing game pull out all the stops and jump out to a lead, limit the give award and force the Bama offense to keep pace. Bama is loaded everywhere but their defense has made games so lopsided I'm not sure anyways knows how their offense will respond when or if they have take control of a game
