    I think they can do the same to Bama for most of the game as well. Aside from about 3 drives, I thought Washington's defense did a great job containing Bama's offense. Clemson is bigger and faster than Washington, so I could see Hurts having problems with that defense as well.

    That said, I think Bama will get enough explosive plays to pull out the win.

    Lane Kiffin finished at Alabama, Sarkisian assumes OC duties
    By Dan Parr
    College Football 24/7 Editor

    Nick Saban has called an audible ahead of Alabama's national championship game matchup with Clemson, and Lane Kiffin has called his last play for the Crimson Tide.

    Saban announced on Monday that Kiffin would shift his focus to his new job as Florida Atlantic head coach and Steve Sarkisian will assume Kiffin's duties as offensive coordinator in advance of the Jan. 9 title game.

    Initially, that transition was planned for after the season.

    Saban and Kiffin described the decision as mutual on Monday.

    "We appreciate all that Lane has done for our football program over the last three years," Saban stated in a school release. "We sat down following the Washington game and talked about the time demands of managing both jobs, and we recognized that it is best for our players, and for Lane, that we allow him to turn his full attention to his new head-coaching rule at FAU.

    "This wasn't an easy decision and we appreciate the way Lane handled this in terms of doing what is best for our team. At the end of the day, both of us wanted to put our players in the best position to be successful. Obviously, we are in a unique situation here where we have our next offensive coordinator already on staff. We have full confidence that Sark will step in right away and make this a smooth transition."

    Such a weird situation. Obviously Kiffin and Saban were butting heads but inserting an outsider like Sarkisian in the biggest game of the year is a huge gamble, IMO. Seems like it would have made more sense to promote one of the offensive position coaches instead.

    Hopefully Sark feels the pressure and goes on a bender before the game.

    Horrendous start by Penn State.

    They botch the opening kickoff but luckily cover the ball at the 3 yard line. But they follow that up with the first play of the game being an interception.

    Nerves.

    They're lucky they aren't down 21-0 right now.
    No Pat McQuistan = No Super Bowl. It's that simple.

    It's looking like The Ohio State selection was the wrong one after all and maybe Penn State did get screwed over.
