Alabama staff reportedly charting every Chris Petersen trick play for Peach Bowl
All you have to do is look back at the 2007 Fiesta Bowl and understand why Alabama officials are crossing their t’s and dotting their i’s — and then some — to prepare for Washington.
Nick Saban’s crew is reportedly charting every trick play a Chris Petersen-led team has run for the better part of the last decade, and for good reason.
Got this text from a coaching buddy of mine. Correct about the staff. It's huge! pic.twitter.com/66pxFc37PM

Petersen has a proven track record of knowing how to fool a defense.
Petersen went 92-12 in eight seasons with Boise State, finishing with 12 wins or more five different times while earning a 2-0 record in BCS bowl games.
It hasn’t taken him very long to get Washington on the same track, taking the Huskies to their first 12-win season since 1991 — the last time the program won a national championship.
Alabama hasn’t lost a game in 15 months and enters the College Football Playoff semifinal matchup as a massive, 15-point favorite.
But it’s still best to be prepared for the unexpected.
