BCS National Championship Game – #1 Alabama VS #2 Texas 8 P.M.
The college football season comes to an end tonight after either Texas or Alabama is crowned National Champions. Both teams have had great seasons this year and the stage doesn’t get any bigger than this tonight.
Keys For Texas
Shut down Alabama’s running game. Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson are going to be a big part of Alabama’s offensive game plan so Texas should put eight in the box to shut down their running attack.
Jordan Shipley needs to have a big game. People say he is the top receiver in the nation. Well here is his chance to prove it. Shipley is going to get a lot of man coverage and he has to make Alabama pay for it.
Keep Colt McCoy in the pocket. Alabama should make McCoy make plays in the passing game and make sure he doesn’t try to run for first downs. I think laying a big hit on McCoy in the beginning of the game would keep him in the pocket.
Keep Texas’ defense off balance. Alabama should come out with different formations, as they did against Florida. Will Muschamp knows Nick Saban very well so a couple of new formations could have Texas’ defense scrambling.
I think this game will be a defensive game and should be fun to watch. I expect this game to be close, but I like Alabama to win the title.
