This might be a huge surprise to some, but Alabama is right where 99 percent of college football experts thought they would be at this point in the season: the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. Sarcasm aside, the Crimson Tide have been arguably the best team in the country all season long and went undefeated in the strongest conference. They had the highest point differential in the nation this year, beating opponents by an average of 31.4 points per game.

Leading the way for Alabama is Tua Tagovailoa, whose rocket arm and country-leading 13.4 yards per pass attempt has given the team an unstoppable dimension. No one can stop the bruising running game and big-play passing game the Tide has. Throw in the Tide's always-elite defense and you have a team that can't be beaten.

Alabama might be the team everyone expects to win, but Clemson has had a quietly dominating season of their own. The Tigers went undefeated leading up to the National Championship Game and was right behind Alabama in average point differential, finishing second in the country with a 30.6-point margin of victory per game. All of this while dealing with a quarterback change from a national championship starter to a talented freshman.

What will separate Clemson from Alabama will be their defense. The Tigers are the second-best defense in the entire nation, only giving up 12.9 points per game. The last time the Crimson Tide faced a top defense was the SEC Championship against Georgia, where they struggled until a mid-game quarterback change put them over the top. Clemson has the talent to stuff the run and put pressure on Tagovailoa, which is something Alabama has not faced often this year.

The Tigers are going to play like it's 2016 and win the Natty.
