• What can we expect from new Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian in the wake of his surprise promotion after Lane Kiffin's unceremonious exit?

• Where is there a potentially disastrous matchup for Clemson?

• Why won't Clemson QB Deshaun Watson go into a shell against Alabama if he makes early mistakes against the Tide?

• How has simplicity helped Clemson's offense evolve?

• What is it about Alabama's pass defense, beyond talent, that makes it so impossible to consistently find success?

• What would be the biggest surprise outcome-wise?

• Does a one-dimensional Alabama passing offense spell certain doom?

• What has Clemson coach Dabo Swinney learned both in the last year and in his time at Clemson that has uniquely prepared him to lead a national championship run?
