Regarding Henry
Alabama quarterback Jake Coker had a surprisingly strong game against the Spartans, but the threat of the running game set up much of his success. Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry will be back as the primary weapon in the championship game.

After running the ball 90 times combined in the Iron Bowl and SEC championship, Henry only had 20 carries against the Spartans. With the decreased workload and the big gap in time between the national semifinal and the national championship, Henry should be fresh.

In what will likely be his last college game, Henry will punctuate a great career at Alabama with a big performance. Clemson has the 18th-ranked run defense, but it has been victimized on a number of occasions this year.

Appalachian State (202) and Syracuse (242) have both eclipsed 200 yards on the ground against Clemson. The Florida State Seminoles ran for 197 yards against the Tigers. With those totals, it’s easy to see Alabama having success on the ground.

That should equate to a big day from Henry.

Watson, This Won’t Be Elementary
Per Bryan Beasley of, Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson has been excellent against the blitz this season:

Watson has been blitzed on 27 percent of his dropbacks during his career, slightly more than the Power 5 average. Watson has had success on such plays, throwing 22 touchdowns and three interceptions while ranking third in both QBR (92) and yards per attempt (10.2) among Power 5 players.

All of that information is impressive, but the truth is Alabama doesn’t need to blitz to get pressure. Its primary rushers in A’Shawn Robinson, Tim Williams and others are so nasty that there’s no need to bring extra pressure.

Simply rushing four will allow Alabama to drop up to seven in pass protection on most downs or six and one to spy Watson.

Alabama’s speed and versatility will make it tough for the Heisman finalist to do damage. He’ll make a decent account of himself, but this won’t be the QB’s best performance.

Reggie, Reggie, Reggie

This year’s crop of inside linebackers looks to be especially strong. After the national championship game, Alabama’s Reggie Ragland will be seen as one of the top two prospects at the position.

Collectively, Alabama’s defense is the best in the nation, but Ragland is the proven leader. Athletically, he’s capable of making plays against the run and the pass, but what stands out with Ragland is his leadership skills.

In an interview with Matt Charboneau of the Detroit News, Ragland spoke about the difference between this year’s team and the one that fell short in 2014:

Everybody on the team knew that leadership wasn’t the right way (last year). But some guys can’t say nothing about it. But now I can say something because I’m a leader. And I feel like, if I don’t like something, I’m going to say it. The guys on the team know we got to do this the right way, because the right way gets it done. The wrong way doesn’t. Guys are very focused in coming in on the plane and all. So I can tell my guys are ready already.

Expect him to fly around the field and make plays and adjustments at the line of scrimmage while leading ‘Bama to a victory. News sources: Bleacher Report . Thanks for stay with us #national championship 2016# . Thanks

CFP National Championship 2016: Key Factors for Clemson vs Alabama Matchup

CFP National Championship 2016| No more polls, no more committees, no more voting, no more politics. Just 100 yards of grass, a pigskin and 22 men in between two white lines to settle who is the best college football team in the land.
CFP National Championship 2016
A southern tilt will shift west to Arizona as No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama face off at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Clemson used a big second half in the Orange Bowl to move past No. 4 Oklahoma easily, while Alabama thrashed No. 3 Michigan State 38-0. With both teams holding plenty of momentum, there are a few key factors that can deliver one team to victory or spoil its national title hopes.

Let’s take a look.
Deshaun Watson
If there’s one thing that has been able to throw a wrench in Alabama’s defensive machine, it’s been a scrambling quarterback.

While Chad Kelly of Ole Miss didn’t need his legs to pick apart the Crimson Tide for Alabama’s lone loss this season, they have burned in the past by mobile passers. Last year, it was Bo Wallace of Ole Miss and Ohio State’s Cardale Jones in the Sugar Bowl.

Their ability to use their legs and extend plays helped to beat an Alabama defense that makes a living off getting after the quarterback and disrupting plays behind the line of scrimmage.

If Alabama can’t get to the quarterback, the rest of its defense is left stranded. It’s in for quite a test in Clemson’s Deshaun Watson.

Watson has rushed for over 1,000 yards to go with 3,699 passing yards in an offense he throttles with big plays each and every week. He’s accounted for 43 total touchdowns this season, which basically means Clemson goes as he does.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban knows his unit is up against it too.

“The guy is an outstanding player and does a great job of executing their offense, tremendous dual threat,” he said, per Matt Connelly of the State (h/t Neil Greenberg of the Washington Post). “You know, really is a very good rhythm passer as well as a guy who can sustain plays and extend plays because of his athleticism and ability to scramble.

If Watson is able to throw for 300 yards and rush for 75, Clemson has a really good chance of winning this football game.

Jake Coker
If Jake Coker plays like he did against Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl, then Alabama is going to win this game easily.

Coker was surgical in breaking down the Spartans defense, putting up season highs in completions and yards with 25 and 286, respectively. It’s been an up-and-down season of sorts with Coker.

With a Heisman Trophy-winning running back in Derrick Henry in the backfield, Coker was relegated to playing second fiddle on offense, and his numbers were pedestrian at best. There were times this season when he struggled to command the offense, but he’s come on strong as of late.

In his past four games, he’s thrown for seven touchdowns and no interceptions as the Crimson Tide have made easy work of some big programs like Mississippi State, Florida and Auburn.

Leading up to the game, the quarterback who wasn’t given much of a chance in his first three years in Alabama looks set to lead the Crimson Tide into battle.

Everyone and their mothers know that Henry is going to see a lot of the ball. In the biggest game of the year, it’s only natural that the best player in the nation gets the ball as much as Saban allows it.

So if Clemson decides to key in on the run and load up the box in preparation of Henry’s impending arrival, Coker’s arm is going to have to be on the money if Alabama wants to outscore Clemson.

Put up a game like he did against Ole Miss or even Arkansas, and Alabama will have problems on Monday.

What time is kickoff for the National Championship 2016? Alabama vs Clemson

Kickoff in the 2016 #National Championship 2016# game Alabama vs. Clemson is set for Monday, January 11, at 7:30 p.m central time.
national championship 2016No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama only have one loss between them this season. So asking opposing coaches how to beat the Tigers and Crimson Tide is a difficult question.

There are two things everyone can agree upon about the College Football Playoff national championship on Monday night in Glendale, Arizona:

— Beating Alabama’s defense will take a special performance.

— Clemson’s Deshaun Watson is capable of such a performance.

Here’s a look at some of the key matchups that will help determine which team wins the national championship.

MATCHUP: Clemson QB Deshaun Watson vs. Alabama OLB/DEs Dillon Lee, Denzel Devall, Ryan Anderson, Tim Williams.

The Heisman Trophy finalist is the type of dual threat that can flummox even the best defenses, and his mobility will be crucial to breaking down the seemingly impenetrable wall that is Alabama’s front seven. Trying to move Alabama’s big and sturdy linemen such as All-America A’Shawn Robinson, Jarran Reed and Jonathan Allen off the line scrimmage consistently is just not happening.

“The more you can spread them out the better opportunity you have of creating a seam in the defense to run the ball,” Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said.

Don’t expect a ton of north-south power running by Clemson. The Tigers are more likely to attack at the edges of Alabama’s defense.

“You’ve got to have some imagination and some smoke-and-mirror mentality for sure,” said Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze, whose team handed Alabama its only loss this season.

There are two ways to do that: Before the snap with receivers and backs going in motion and formations that draw defenders away from the ball and toward the sideline. Or, after the snap with option or packaged plays that allow the quarterback to react to a defense and either run, hand off, or pass.

“Anything that maybe can distract a defensive end or one of those linebackers just for a moment, because the reality is double-teams, their down front guys are so good, the double-teams very seldom even get off of them and get to another guy unless there is something that freezes them for a second,” Freeze said.

As the games have become more important for Clemson, Watson has been used as a ball carrier more. He has surpassed 20 carries in each of the last three games, including a season-high 24 for a season-best 145 yards in the Orange Bowl victory against Oklahoma.

“Most defenses out there are not designed to stop a guy like Deshaun Watson and what he can do on his own,” said Cole Cubelic, former Auburn offensive lineman who now works as an analyst for ESPN and hosts a radio show in Huntsville, Alabama. “(Clemson) cannot be afraid to let that kid get hit. You need him to be dynamic.”

Clemson will also need Watson’s wheels to escape an Alabama pass rush that has registered 50 sacks.

MATCHUP: Alabama WR Calvin Ridley vs. Clemson CB Mackensie Alexander.

The freshman Ridley is Alabama’s next great receiver, following Julio Jones and Amari Cooper. Against Michigan State, the Tide took advantage of a secondary that had no match for Ridley (eight catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns).

Alexander doesn’t get quite as much publicity as some of the nation’s other shutdown corners, but make no mistake: He is as talented as any of them.

“He’s good enough to say let’s not mess with it on that side,” said former Syracuse coach Scott Shafer, who is now the defensive coordinator at Maryland.

That explains why Alexander had no interceptions this season. The other corner, Cordrea Tankersley, led the team with five picks and is no slouch, either. Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables leans on his cover guys.

“You’re going to have to win against man coverage,” Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said.

Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin is excellent at creating advantageous matchups for play-makers. It will be interesting to see if Kiffin attempts to get Ridley away from Alexander.

MATCHUP: Alabama RB Derrick Henry vs. Clemson LBs Ben Boulware and B.J. Goodson and S Jayron Kearse.

After going away from its Heisman Trophy winner to beat Michigan State, expect Kiffin to lean on Henry in the national championship game. Clemson would be better off in a high-scoring game, with lots of possessions for its up-tempo offense. Alabama wants to avoid that.

“Ball control. Manage field position. Put your defense in as many good spots as you can,” Cubelic said.

The Tigers also have a talented and tough defensive line, led by defensive end Shaq Lawson. Plus, their top-notch corners allow Venables to get safeties, like the 220-pound Kearse, involved in stopping the run.

“The traditional running game against them is very hard,” Clawson said. “They give you very few run-friendly boxes.”

Clemson has been susceptible to long runs. The Tigers have allowed 22 runs of 20-plus yards, tied for 83rd in FBS. Those are often the result of over pursuing, sloppy tackling and taking bad angles. The Tigers can’t let a 5-yard run by Henry turn into a 35-yarder.

MATCHUP: Clemson TE Jordan Leggett vs. Alabama DBs Eddie Jackson and Geno Mattias-Smith.

Defensive coordinator Kirby Smart moved Jackson and Smith, smaller defensive backs with cornerback skills, to safety so the Tide it could better matchup with spread offenses. Basically, Alabama will be in a nickel defense with five defensive backs most of the game against Clemson.

Leggett, at 6-foot-5, 255-pounds, is a matchup problem and Clemson likes to send him down the middle on run-pass option plays. He caught 35 passes and led the team with seven touchdown receptions. national championship 2016
