Alabama-Clemson IV: Can Saban's dynasty reach new heights?Posted on:January 07, 2019
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban and Clemson coach Dabo Swinney went through the familiar routine Sunday. Joint news conference, during which Swinney does most of the talking. Saban compliments Swinney's Tigers. Swinney compliments Saban's unprecedented run with the Crimson Tide. Handshake. Pose for a picture with a trophy. They have done this drill four straight seasons in the College Football Playoff. Alabama-Clemson IV, the third meeting with the national championship on the line, will be played Monday night at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Tide vs. Tigers might be getting old for some fans, but the latest chapter is a feature not a bug in the five-year-old playoff to Swinney.
