This isn’t a knock on Alabama but just shows how fast Clemson has risen. Alabama and Clemson have both been fighting for the top spot over the last few seasons. However Clemson seems to be leaving Alabama behind.

Trevor Lawrence and Co. will be a force in 2019 and don’t look to slow down. The question comes down to how Tua and Alabama respond after such a disastrous championship performance. Tua has started to show signs of struggling in the big games. He saved the day after taking over for Hurts in his first championship.

As fun and exciting as the 2019 season will be, we likely know where it will end. Alabama and Clemson will likely be at the end again and they are two of the best teams in the entire country. While Clemson has been on a major come up the last few years, Nick Saban is still the greatest coach in college football history.
