Jahleel Billingsley could emerge as Alabama's 'unsung hero' in title game, could make 'Ohio State's defense pay'


Alabama and Ohio State face off in Miami Monday night for College Football's national championship.

With both teams being discussed among the contenders all season, there's been no shortage of coverage on either squad, and the players and playmakers on both teams are well-known.

With that said, coming into the game tonight, as powerful as both offenses appear to be, who are the X-Factors for each team?

College football analyst and former Alabama and Falcons offensive lineman Mike Johnson isn't sure there are any.

"It's hard to bring up an X-Factor nobody is talking about," admits Johnson. "Billingsley, the tight end, has come into his own, and if you're looking for guys that can make Ohio State's defense pay, that tight end position could be an unsung hero."
