Clemson coach Dabo Swinney spoke to the media on Saturday morning and shared that he thought Clemson was the only team that had a chance to upset Alabama.

"Well, it kind of felt like WWE walking in here," Swinney said. "It was like Saturday Night Raw, right? Or is it Friday Night Raw? Which is it? It's kind of neat coming into this setting, and it is. These are two great -- these are the two best teams, and to be honest with you, I don't think there's another team out there that's capable of beating Alabama. I think we're probably the only team that has a chance."

Swinney compared Clemson-Alabama matchup to the classic Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frasier battles.

"You know, that's -- and we do, we've got a solid chance," Swinney said. "But we've got to go toe to toe. Whoever is Ali, whoever is Frazier, it's two great guys battling it out. That's the way it is, and I love that. It's never been easy. My entire life, nothing has been easy, and this is the way it ought to be. If we're going to get it done, then we ought to have to play and beat a team like Alabama."
