interesting day surrounding the college national championship. we saw it in the orange bowl. and today it was a circus. a bit of a distraction maybe, but an opportunity for the players to have a lot of fun. let me set the scene. we are live at scottsdale community college. that is because clemson is practicing behind us as we speak. tigers practicing for the only official practice before the game. back to media day. more on practice a little more in sports. hundreds of reporters descended to the floor of the phoenix convention center to hear from both clemson and alabama. an hour with each team. dabo swinney and deshaun watson were the main attraction. dabo swinney says beating alabama and winning a national championship would be awfully special. coach swinney: it would be
we are going to win a national shortage of incomes and. --national championship in clemson. hopefully it is monday night. we will be back your somewhere. we are not going away. we have a program that is to stay in the hunt. i am excited about that. to be able to be in my first national championship and beat the university of alabama, it would be pretty special. >> this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. we work so hard to get to this moment. it's going to be a great atmosphere, great, time, i'm just going to enjoy it. brad: deshaun watson lobbies we have to play well on monday night -- will obviously have to play well on monday night to get the championship.
mackensie alexander says he has no reason to build up the opposing team. we ran into something on media day that you want to see. it has to do with football. we will leave it at that. live in scottsdale, brad fralick, wyff news 4. patrick: turning now to commitment 2016, six gop candidates made a stop in the palmetto state with the key primaries only weeks away. they were here to talk about poverty, but the event wasn't without protests against one of the candidates. wyff news 4's corey davis has the story tonight in columbia. corey: it was standing room only here at the convention center in columbia. there was supposed to be seven gop presidential candidates here, but carly fiorina wasn't able to make her flight, so she did not attend today's event. but overall candidates spoke to a room of hundreds of people about how they plan to fight poverty. [applause] >> it's great to give people a chance to get a job, but if they don't have the skills to get a job, then that's the first step.
programs i think need to be revamped and certainly our education systems as well. >> they're always going to be jail cells if i'm president for folks who are dealing drugs and committing violent acts. always going to be jail cells for them. but we need to get some people who are just addicts and diseased out of those jail cells, give them treatment, because you can't get to work if you can't get out of bed in the morning. you can't get to work if you're high on heroine or cocaine, no one's going to hire you. >> we hydrolyzed -- we have the highest corporate tax rates in the world. that is craziness. i would suggest a six-month hiatus for it to be repatriated with no taxes whatsoever. [applause] the process, requiring that 10% of it be used in enterprise zones and create jobs for people that are unemployed and on welfare. >> do you think focusing on
mr. huckabee: no, focusing on inequality is focusing on the problem. focusing on the solution is how solution is to create an environment of which jobs are brought back to the united states. >> the working poor, the drug addicted, and the mentally ill are issues. these are people who live in the shadows. i absolutely think, as jack kemp did, that when we rise, everybody's got to have a shot . that opens everybody's hearts. >> i strongly believe that k-12 systems belong squarely and solely in the hands of state and local communities, that we don't need a national school board. poor people are often condemned to sending their kids to schools that are failing, and so i believe at the state level and many states across this country have aggressively pursued empowering parents to put their children in the best setting possible. corey: there were hiccups at today's event when senator marco rubio was interrupted several times by what appeared to hispanic protestors, who had issues with how he's approaching immigration. we'll have much more from those protestors and what other candidates had to say today tonight at 11:00.

not the new york jets, [laughter] but the northern and southern jets. sorry if you are a jets fan. we have the rain moving in. the northern jetstream is way too far north, so only getting rainfall. but the pattern moving forward favors the cold air to be collocated with moisture. we will have to watch this. we are not watching any particular low-pressure system. some of the modules hint at lows moving from the south late next week into next weekend. whether or not those lows depart from other models we will have to see. one thing is for sure is that the wintry threat will be high. we look at this arctic oscillation model. this goes way negative. anytime it does that, the pattern is in place for it to be very cold. civil disturbances headed our way over the next two weeks. --several disturbances headed
i think by the end of january, will have a good chance of snowfall. clouds increasing next weekend, if the models come together. the cold air sticks around. right now we are smooth sailing. the models starting to hint that is about to get active. patrick: you mentioned the jets, but some of the weather good play a part in the upcoming playoff games? panthers included? chris: yeah, they have a game in charlotte next week. patrick: we will keep an eye on it. if you are feeling lucky, you may want to get on this. the powerball jackpot has reached an all-time high, with tonight's drawing worth $900 million. that's the biggest lottery jackpot in u.s. history. many powerball players say they don't care about the odds. after all, someone has to win eventually. if the winner takes home the lump sum payment they would be looking at about a half a billion dollars. >> now wyff news 4 sports. brad: a full day on deck for clemson.

mackensie alexander, the tigers cornerback, did not mince his words when he said he has no reason to build up any opponent. >> i'm not going to sit here and build anybody's dreams, talk about how talented and good he is. i respect all of my opponents. but when it is time to go out there, that is what i'm about. five not going to boost anybody's ego. nobody stroked mine my whole life. brad: alexander obviously had his fair share of success this year. one of the best cornerbacks statistically in the country. he will be tested. alabama has a couple of great wide receivers. alexander did not want to give any credence to those wide receivers. media day is about having fun and letting these players let their hair down.
the hands of eric mac lain, the big offensive guard. today he was glued to the podium and what not allow him to get up. so we just moved one position over and found center jay guillermo. >> i heard from everyone on the team that you have the hottest bod, is that true? >> i will not confirm or deny that. >> he does. i will confirm that. >> how do you get such luscious hair? >> how much time do you spend sitting like this? >> it's kind of a natural thing. shallot -- shout out to the coach. >> coach b for the win. brad: that is just a little taste of what you are going to get monday night at 7:00 in our live special leading up to the game, "road to the title." you will hear a lot more from
