Alabama vs. Clemson Free NCAAF Predictions

Alabama vs. Clemson
One of the most anticipated games in the opening week of College Football, the Clemson Tigers host the Alabama Crimson Tide in an early statement game for both squads. Clemson has a reputation for failing to meet expectations, a label that Tommy Bowden and his Tigers surely want to shake. Alabama has faced some up and down seasons in recent years. The Tide and their faithful are ready to bring Bama back to their glory-days as one of the most feared teams in football. They’ve started to put some of the pieces together, but I don’t think they are ready to make an drastic improvements just yet.
The Clemson offense will be one to watch this year, they posted an impressive 403 yards per game of total offense last year and they have all of the major pieces back in place to have another impressive statistical season. Starting QB and ACC preseason player of the year, Cullen Harper is back for his senior year and looking to improve upon a 2007 season in which he threw for nearly 3,000 yeards and 27 TDs. The Tigers have very talented receivers and two running backs that could both be starters for almost any team in the nation. It will be fun to watch how Bowden utilizes all of his tools throughout this game and the season overall.
