Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney will be extremely focused when Alabama and Clemson face off for the national title on Monday night, with Saban trying to win his fourth championship with the Crimson Tide (fifth overall) and Swinney trying to win his first while building Clemson into a program that resembles 'Bama.

But while they'll be trying to win for their teams, a side competition between the two coaches will be playing out.

Saban and Swinney both own vacation homes in Boca Grande, Florida, and sometimes see each other there in the offseason. So in an interview with ESPN's Hannah Storm, they made a friendly bet for the national title game:

Saban: Whoever wins the game, the loser has to buy dinner at Temps in Boca. That’s our bet.

Swinney: I love it! I love it.

We're presuming "Temps" is The Temptation Restaurant. Looks like the winner is gonna eat pretty good.

Here's the full interview with Saban and Swinney.
