Alabama's defense will be facing quite the quarterback on Monday night in the College Football Playoff national championship game. 

The Crimson Tide will attempt to stop a Clemson offense led by Deshaun Watson, the Tigers' star sophomore who was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. 

This evening, Alabama defensive coach/new Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Watson is a "mixture" of three great college quarterbacks he has played.
