TAMPA, Fla. — Alabama’s pregame routine was just that — routine.
The Crimson Tide appeared loose and relaxed going through pregame drills leading up to the 8:17 p.m. kickoff against Clemson in the College Football Playoff championship game Monday at Raymond James Stadium (TV: ESPN).
Alabama beat writer Marq Burnett said it’s a matter of the Crimson Tide having played in enough big games before.
SECcountry.com’s Mike Griffith asked Burnett how Clemson could best attack Alabama’s defense, and the answer was “go deep.”
Here’s the pregame report from field level on Monday night.
