ESPN Writer Says Alabama Will Roll, Beat These Two Teams For National Title

Alabama has looked dominant so far and this ESPN writer doesn't see anyone slowing down the Crimson Tide this season.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach delivered 15 things he sees playing out during the rest of this college football season and item No. 1 on that list is that Alabama will roll and repeat as national champions.

Schlabach doesn't just see the Tide finishing the regular season unbeaten; he sees 'Bama winning its remaining five games by at least 10 points. He also says that Tennessee will make it to Atlanta for the SEC Championship, but the bad news for Vol fans is that the Tide will dominate Tennessee just like it did a week ago.

Then, the fun starts, as Schlabach delivers his prediction on who the Tide beat for the national title and how they do it:

Then Alabama will win a close game against Clemson in the CFP semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on Dec. 31, before defeating Ohio State in another close game in the College Football Playoff National Championship in Tampa, Florida, on Jan. 9.

After guiding Alabama to its fifth national championship, Oct. 31 (Saban's birthday) will be declared a state holiday in Alabama (except in Auburn, of course).

Perhaps the toughest game left on the Tide's regular season slate comes this Saturday as Texas A&M visits Tuscaloosa.
