Clemson tries to cap a season for the ages the same way the 1981 team did. Against No. 2 Alabama, Dabo Swinney and the Tigers look to slow down the Heisman Trophy winner in what should be a real war of attrition.
Jeff Scott and Tony Elliott seek to push the right buttons to try and find a weakness in the country's top-ranked run defense -- but if anyone have the weapons to do it, it's the Tigers. Clemson's line is comprised of five All-ACC players.
The Tigers will have their own hands full defensively. The SEC champions have two first-team All-SEC picks paving the way for arguably the best running back in the country. If Shaq Lawson is 100%, it'll go a long way towards helping Clemson finish what they've started.
There's so many other matchups to watch. Shakin' The Southland's full preview has you more than covered.
