National Title Will Be A Tale of Similar Strategies
WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Alabama and Georgia are set to square off in a National Championship that promises to be an entertaining one.
One of the many things to watch in the is how true freshman, Jake Fromm performs.
Alabama is known to take the run game away and he’ll be forced to throw into some tight coverage.
Georgia will have a similar defensive strategy. Jalen Hurts can do some serious damage on the ground as he has rushed for 808 yards this season. He is completing 61.3% of his pass attempts and Calvin Ridley is responsible for more than 30% of his completions this year.
So for the Georgia defense, their priorities will be to stop the run game and play lock down defense on Calvin Ridley. That’s easier said than done.
As for Alabama’s defense, they regained their identity in the Sugar Bowl as they kept Clemson to just 188 total yards.
Look for them to have the same aggressive defense on Monday night.
Kickoff for the National Championship is set for 8:00 pm Eastern from Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
