Alabama vs Ohio State Preview

The Buckeyes last played on January 1, when they disposed of the Clemson Tigers in the Sugar Bowl, 49-28, led by a standout performance by quarterback Justin Fields. The OSU quarterback went 22-28 for 385 yards, six touchdowns and an interception in the win. Trey Sermon also rushed for 193 yards and a touchdown, shredding Clemson’s defense for 6.1 yards per carry.

Now, they’ll be facing a Crimson Tide team who beat Notre Dame in the Rose Bowl, 31-14, also on New Year’s Day. Quarterback Mac Jones was lights out in the win, completing 83.3 percent of his passes for four touchdowns and no picks. Bama has averaged 48.2 points a game this season with Jones under center, which was second overall in the nation. Thus, for Ohio State, head coach Ryan Day says a major key to this game just might be containment.

“It really isn’t about how many yards you give up,” Day said, per 247 Sports. “It’s all about getting stops. … You can let them drive the entire length of the field, but if they kick field goals or you get turnovers along the way, good things are going to happen.”

OSU will also have to contend with a Crimson Tide defense that is allowing 19 points a game. “They’re the type of group that never makes a mistake in terms of what gap they’re supposed to be in,” Ohio State center Josh Myers said about Alabama, per ESPN. “If they’re on a blitz, no one messes up. … I’ve been watching a bunch of film on them, and I don’t think I’ve seen it one time.”

On defense, the Buckeyes are surrendering 22 points a game this year, and they represent the toughest challenge Nick Saban and company have faced all season. “They’re very well-coached in every phase, and their team plays with great intangibles, discipline, toughness, play hard. Seem to have great togetherness on their team. So I think those are all great indicators of what a great job Ryan Day does as a head coach and as a leader of his organization,” Meyer said about OSU, per 247 Sports.

All eyes will likely be on fields and Jones in this one, both of whom are considered to be top quarterback prospects. Fields has been dealing with an injury to his ribs, but the talented quarterback says he’ll be fine. “I’ll be good come Monday night,” Fields vowed.
