ESPN’s Marty Smith identifies most crucial matchup in Clemson-Alabama

ESPN reporter Marty Smith has been embedded in Clemson camp for much of the last five months, covering the Tigers’ 2015 campaign. On Wednesday, he joined The David Glenn Show to talk about Dabo Swinney’s personality, Deshaun Watson’s demeanor and what Clemson will need to do to beat Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday.

“I think the game is Clemson offensive line vs. Bama defensive line,” Smith said. “If (Clemson) can make Bama make a couple mistakes and take advantage of those mistakes, they’ve got a great chance.”

During the conversation, Smith also discussed what drives Tigers running back Wayne Gallman. Click below to hear the full interview:
