ESPN’s Chris Low: Jalen Hurts, Alabama passing game must improve to beat Clemson

Alabama gets a shot at revenge when it plays Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinal, but the Tide can’t roll through last year’s roadblock without taking it to the air.

In last January’s national title game, Hurts struggled on the way to 13-for-31 passing for 131 yards and a touchdown.

Speaking on  the Monday Opening Drive, ESPN’s Chris Low put the burden on Hurts and the passing game to carry Alabama past Clemson and back to the big stage.

Clemson is the defending national champion, it’s proven it can beat Alabama on the big stage and it enters the College Football Playoff as the No. 1 seed. However, the Tide still opened as a 3-point favorite.
