NEW ORLEANS (WALA) -
It's the third year in a row Alabama and Clemson have seen each other in the postseason. Coaches Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney understand the tall task that's ahead of them.
Saban said, "We are playing against a very very good team. We played them several years now so it makes it a little bit of a rivalry game. Seems like we have had really good preparation for the game and I think it's time to go out and play and see who the best team is."
Clemson's Swinney added, "Gearing ourselves for a great day tomorrow we are really excited about game day getting here and I know Alabama is as well. It's a long time to prepare for a game and I and sure both teams are ready to go play and let's see what will happen."
The Sugar Bowl is set to kick off tomorrow at 7:45 pm from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Stay with FOX10 for coverage of the Sugar Bowl and the Peach Bowl.
