The National Championship game is just days away, and Alabama and Clemson are looking to hit the gridiron and claim college football's biggest prize.
Adam Kramer, college football analyst from the Bleacher Report joined the Sam Bourquin Show Thursday to break down the game, key matchups, and size up the coaching matchup between Nick Saban of the Crimson Tide, and Dabo Swinney of Clemson.
"It'll be fun," Kramer said. "You'll have this year's Heisman winner (Derrick Henry) against next year's probable Heisman winner in Deshaun Watson, so it should be a good game."
There isn't a whole lot of buzz excluding Alabama and South Carolina for this matchup, but Adam said the story lines are aplenty.
"The question we all want to know is Alabama going to put Clemson in that vice and squeeze the life out of them," he said.
With Alabama's big, physical defense, Clemson will have to match that physicality.
