Alabama appears to be getting desperate. Trailing 31-16 in the national title game, the Crimson Tide made an absolutely mid-boggling call on fourth and six from Clemson’s 22-yard-line.
What were they even going for there? They snapped the ball to third-string quarterback Mac Jones, who basically ran straight ahead into the line. He lost two yards on the play. Oh, and Clemson ran its regular defense there, completely anticipating a fake.
The Tigers scored on the ensuing possession to take a 37-16 lead.
