The management of Alabama football team thinks that the small vacation would help the players to come back with great energy and enthusiasm after meeting with their family members. The opponents, Washington Huskies, were the Pac-12 champions this year and became eligible to come against Crimson Tide in the playoff. Alabama is confident that it can continue the dream run in the playoff as well, but Huskies is also an equally competent opponent and can be a real challenge for the team.
When it comes to statistics between both the teams, they met each other four times till date with each time Crimson Tides dominating over the Huskies. If Washington couldn't break the defense of Alabama, this time also the story won't be different. The defense of the Tides was is one of the best in College Football and that helped them to march to the playoff very easily. Nick knows the strength of his team and he is giving special focus to defense with additional training including training with former players.
While Alabama and Washington will fight each other in the Peach Bowl at the Georgia Dome Atlanta, the second playoff, Fiesta Bowl, will be between Clemson Tigers and Ohio State Buckeyes.
