Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney is heading back to Tuscaloosa.
After his team faces the Syracuse Orange on Friday night, Swinney will be making the trip to Bryant-Denny Stadium for Alabama’s SEC clash with Arkansas for a special halftime celebration.
No, Alabama won’t be celebrating Swinney and Clemson’s victory over the Crimson Tide in the national championship game last season. Instead, they will be honoring Alabama’s 1992 national championship team.
Swinney was a walk-on wide receiver for Alabama prior to Nick Saban’s reign.
