Saturday, August 30th. The first day of the 2008 college football season. It's Alabama vs. Clemson on ABC at 8:00 (7:00 central) Its both teams opener in the Georgia Dome. The game is at a neutral site, but clemson in the home team, Alabama is away.
Clemson has a very good QB in Cullen Harper and two good running backs in James Davis and C.J Spiller. Also with a good recieving core with Aaron Kelly and Tyler Grisham.
Alabama also has a good QB, John Parker Wilson, along with him at Tailback Terry Grant. The starting recievers are Mike Mcoy, Nikitia Stover, and Freshman Julio Jones.
This season opener is going to make or break these 2 teams. Even though this is a Non-confrence game, the winner will most likely finish better than the other. This is a must see game, and in my opinion one of the best non-confrence games of the year.
Clemson will be a top 10, if not top 15 team in the preseason polls, and Alabama will most likely be in the top 25. Both teams are going into this game thinking there the better team, and it will all be decided on the playing field. I know Saban will have the guys ready, but so will Tommy Bowden. This game could go either way, but heres my prediction, and please leave your comments.
Alabama 27 Clemson 24
