Another NCAA Football season is done and dusted as Nick Sabin and the Alabama Crimson Tide rolled over a shocked Ohio State, making Alabama Champ.
Alabama Champ actually sounds like a new strain of CBD or a 500lb jelly wrestler, but that’s aside the point.
Alabama never really looked back in this game, smacking Ohio State in the mouth 52-24. It’s the 14th consecutive victory for Bama, as they rolled onto an undefeated season during the year of Covid. Sure, and asterix could be placed the 2020 season as not all of the teams had a fair shot at the title, although to be honest…that is America.
DeVonta Smith was an absolute monster in this game, hauling in 3 TDs, and 12 catches for 215 yards. The Heisman Trophy winner was on fine form for the final match, thoroughly impressing all of the scouts and NFL teams who now have a draft conundrum ahead of them. Smith wasn’t really focused in many top 5 predictions, but you have to imagine that the Miami Dolphins who draft 3rd, would be interested in pairing this speedy youngster with Tua.
The NFL Draft is only 4 months away, and we’ll see what the league thinks of the speedster, as well as his Ohio State QB counterpoint Justin Fields. Fields was overmatched by a stiff Bama D in this game, but that shouldn’t affect his overall NFL stock.
This was a tough game for any of us to watch in the UK given the time difference, so here are the highlights for your consideration.
