Punters will find it difficult to stand in front of the Alabama train led by quarterback Mac Jones (3,379 passing yards; 36 touchdowns) after the command he showed in his junior season in Tuscaloosa. At the Rose Bowl, Jones was simply flawless, completing 25 of 30 passes for 297 yards and four touchdowns in his 31-14 victory over No. 4 Notre Dame in the Rose Bowl Semifinal playoff game.
Having weapons like wide receiver DeVonta Smith and running bacNameee Harris at his disposal makes Tide’s offensive attack a nightmare to defend. blacksmith has an incredible 105 receptions for 1,641 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns this season.

If Ohio State wants to have any chance to compete with Alabama on the biggest stage of the season, they’ll need a healthFieldds against a fierce front-seven from Crimson Tide.
If Fields plays at less than his maximum strength, Ohio State is expected to rely heavily on running back Trey Sermon, who has been sensational in the club’s past two games, gaining 424 yards rushing and adding three touchdown Be Sermon’s performances have drawn comparisons to the incredible postseason success of another elite Buckeye running back: EzekieElliotttt.
