We're calling on Jesse palmer for more. Good morning from sunny Tampa. Looks much warmer than here in New York. Okay, Jesse. Somewhat the key for both teams in this game? First off, it's 35 degrees right now. Not much warmer than New York City. I think defense is a huge key in this game tomorrow for both teams pip think for Alabama they have to do great job of getting pressure on deshaedeshaun Watson.

They have to slow down Alabama's rushing attack. They have to force Jalen hurts to beat them. I think this is going be a much lower scoring game. Last year, Alabama won, 45-40. It was a wild one. What are the differences between last year and this? For Clemson, think confidence. Last year was unchartered waters for them. That was the first time in national championship game underhead coach dabo swinney. They only lost the game by five point naps have key players that played in that game last year back this year.
