Both teams waltzed through the College Football Playoff semifinals, definitively establishing themselves as the two best squads in the country. It was a similar case last year, and the Crimson Tide nabbed a thrilling 45-40 victory in that battle with the Tigers.
Clemson’s offense is largely built on returning players, but the Tiger defense and whole Alabama unit feature plenty of new starters.
Comparing these rosters by positional group solidifies the belief that these are two evenly matched teams. Starters are listed at the beginning of each section, though rotational reserves are mentioned as well.
Deshaun Watson already held a clear edge in this category, but Hurts’ championship debut just became that much more difficult. He’s accustomed to Kiffin calling the shots, so the freshman must adjust to Sark while in the biggest game of his career.
However, there are few, if any, quarterbacks a college football team would rather have in a clutch moment. In last season’s matchup, Saban decided to call a surprise onside kick because he was concerned Alabama couldn’t stop Watson, according to John Zenor of the Associated Press.
