Clemson this Clemson that. Yes. I know all about that. But, the real two blue bloods of College Football are no others than the Tide and the Buckeyes.
Two programs with most winning attitude you can find anywhere.
Alabama and Ohio State most recently met during the inaugural College Football Playoff in 2015. The Urban Meyer coached and Cardale Jones quarterbacked Buckeyes won the Allstate Sugar Bowl semifinal 42-35 and went on to win a national title.
Alabama and Ohio State have both dominated their conferences . Since the start of the 2014 season, Alabama is 59-5 against SEC opponents, and Ohio State is 59-4 against Big Ten opponents.
The only difference between the teams today is that the Buckeyes have to be absolutely their best to beat the Tide and for a change -they will have to showcase better defensive effort as well as Fields would have to be protected much better and the special teams of the Tide have to be held to do a minimum damage for the Buckeyes to survive the usual Alabama dominance.
Did you pay attention how many things have to go Ohio State's way for them to win this game? Ok. And, what about the cover? Will the tide blow the Buckeyes away scoring a full TD and the FG more than Justin Fields and the boys?
