Dabo Swinney Will Be at the Alabama-Arkansas Game on Saturday Night
Worlds will be colliding on Saturday night when Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney makes an appearance at Bryant-Denny Stadium for an Alabama regular season game.
Swinney, whose team is the defending national champion and currently sits at No. 2 in the polls behind Alabama, will be a part of a reunion for the 1992 Crimson Tide team that won a championship under Gene Stallings. The Birmingham native came to Alabama as a walk-on wide receiver in 1989 before earning a scholarship and winning a title as a senior.

Swinney won’t be the only Clemson staff member in attendance on Saturday night. According to Tommy Deas, he’ll be traveling with four other men that were either players or coaches on that 1992 team.
