the way for the tigers and tied. brad fralick joins us live now from glendale, arizona. brad, it's almost time for kickoff? brad: it certainly is. this is what we have waited for. gameday is a must hear. so close, we can taste it. clemson will play for a national championship with a first time since 1981. the last time they did that, they did it in the orange bowl. 34 years later, another chance. it comes against the crimson tide. the head coach is met for the media for the final time this morning. i want to show you this. the fans has arrived. they have descended on glendale, arizona. this was shot a couple hours ago across the street from the stadium. there were fans everywhere, and there was orange all over the place. espn was broadcasting from this location.
great happenings there. the fans are here, a 65-35 clemson-alabama crowd. a lot of clemson fans have made the trip. to the news of the day, once an all-american defensive and shaq lawson injured his knee in the orange bowl, came out of the game, and had an ice pack on his knee. the diagnosis, a sprain. he said emphatically that he would be able to play against alabama. he said yesterday at media day, he felt like he was 60%. dabo swinney said today he expects his defensive and to play. >> we expect him to play. hopefully, he will be able to perform, and play to the level that we all know he can. if not, coach saban isn't going to cancel the game. so we are going to have to keep playing. we will put the next guy in there. so that's the way it is. we expect him to play. he looked
out there and play in a game of this magnitude with the intensity and physicality, you never know. but he has done what he is supposed to do to play in the game. brad: lawson's impact was felt right away in that ornage bowl game with the early sacks. he is a difference-maker on the defensive line. if you remember in the orange bowl game, when he came out, austin bryant played defensive end and he played pretty well. he has big-game experience and has played a lot this year. if he has to step in for shaq lawson, clemson will be ok on defense. he is not an all-american but he is serviceable as a defensive end. coming up later in sports, we hear from dabo swinney and the crimson tide coach, nick saban. a mutual respect for one another. live in glendale brad fralick, , wyff news 4. mike: our coverage of the national title game continues
