Saban, Kelly approach showdown from different experiences

(Continued)

Saban said his pregame speech will be focused on what he senses he needs to say to put his team in the right frame of mind to go out and win another national championship.

“I think what we're really always trying to accomplish is to make sure the team has a passion for the challenge that they have in front of them,” Saban said. “Certainly we're always trying to create and make sure that they have the right kind of psychological disposition to play with the kind of mental energy and intensity that's going to allow them to be all they can be and play their best football game”.

Kelly, meanwhile, said much of his pregame talk to his team will be on a topic he has already decided on applicable to tonight’s game.

“But a lot of it has always been about the moment,” Kelly said, “and getting a look at them … and getting a sense and feel for where they are at that moment.

The moment for both teams arrives tonight at 8:30 p.m. EST.
