very physical. they shut down the running attack and they've done a great job of getting in the face of every quarterback they've gone up against this season. rick: but have they faced anyone like deshaun watson, has the arm is very accurate and really can run away from his defenders. paul: well i don't know if he's the same in terms of his accuracy. but i will say joshua dobbs out of tennessee he was a mobile qb everybody thought was going to run all over alabama's defense as well, but alabama got to him five times in route to a victory so it could be a long for clemson if deshaun watson can't get going. rick: okay paul give us a prediction. paul: i think i'm going to have to say it's going to be a good game but i think alabama is going to pull away late 31-14 crimson tide en route to that 16th national title. rick: i think it's going to be a close game, the tigers are going to win their 18th straight game, they're going to knock off the
