Prospect Predictions

Today is the big day for both Alabama and Notre Dame, and several Crimson Tide commits and targets weighed in with predictions and reasons why one team will hoist the crustal ball tonight in Miami.

Will Alabama solidify itself as the most recent college football dynasty?

Will Notre Dame return to its previous glory as one of the best teams in America, year-in, year-out?

Those questions and more will be answered in tonight's BCS National Championship Game, but several Alabama recruits shared their thouhgts as to why one team will come out victorious.


*Grant Hill: "24-17 Alabama. I think Notre Dame will play inspired, but Nick Saban will have his squad ready to play."

*Ardarius Stewart: "It's going to be a clash of the Titans but ‘Bama has it 35-21."

*Bo Scarborough (2014): "17-14, Alabama. Both teams are gonna play all four quarters, both teams have great players, but Alabama is gonna pull it away."

*O.J. Howard: "I think the score's going to end up being 24-13, ‘Bama's going to win."

*Anthony Averett: "30 to 17, Bama. We are going to pass it a little more since they know about our run game. And the defense should keep things in check."

*Brandon Hill: "39-14 ‘Bama. I say that because Notre Dame hasn't really played anyone that equals out to ‘Bama."


*2014 RB Racean Thomas: "I'll say ‘Bama wins, but I don't know by how much because they're experienced in these types of games and they're my boys."

*2014 QB Devlin Hodges: "Alabama. I feel like they're the better team. Nick Saban is 3-0 in BCS Championship games."

*2014 DB Nick Watkins: "I really don't have a score. Both teams will be held under 21 points because this will be a defensive game. DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS."

*2014 WR Braxton Berrios: "24-17 ‘Bama, Notre Dame hasn't seen anything like them yet."

*2014 LB Chris Register: "I'm going to say Alabama by one score. These teams, to me, are pretty equal matchups."

*2014 WR Demarcus Bingham: "32-21 Roll Tide. Because they've been through it all. They've beaten some of the best teams in the NCAA. They got the talent, heart and determination. They're bringing it home."

*2015 RB Jaques Patrick: "I think ‘Bama wins 31-24 because of their running game. It will help them deep down the stretch."

*2015 DB Rico McGraw: "I'm gonna go with Alabama, 24-10. Alabama's defense will play big."

*2014 QB Bear Fenimore: "31-13 Alabama. I'm thinking A.J. (McCarron) has a big night like he did in last year's national championship game but Alabama will be dominant running the ball and will have as many rushing TDs as ND (Notre Dame) has given up all season. The defense will contain Everett Golson and they're run game."

*2014 DE Dante Sawyer: "'Bama 24014. Irish are gonna come out strong, but not going to finish. It's the SEC, grown-man conference."

Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. EST
