Monday night, there’s more than a trophy on the line in the national championship game between Alabama and Clemson.
That would be The Temptation Restaurant in Boca Grande, Florida.
Both head coaches — Alabama’s Nick Saban and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney — eat there during the offseason, and they decided to make an impromptu wager this weekend.
“Whoever wins the game, the loser has to buy dinner at Temps in Boca,” Saban told ESPN‘s Hannah Storm. “That’s our bet.”
Added Swinney: “I love it. I love it.”
Outside of dining, the pair said they also take boat rides, go fishing and play golf together.
“We enjoy it,” Saban said. “Nobody cares who you are, and it’s a great way to get away.”
The national championship game kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET (ESPN).
