PLAY LIKE A CHAMPION: D-Line could be key to Cotton Bowl outcome

DALLAS (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Two dominant defensive lines will be on the field Saturday when Notre Dame and Clemson square off in the Cotton Bowl, with a spot in the National Championship at stake.

If one outshines the other, it could be a key factor in the outcome.

Both teams feature quarterbacks who can really let it fly — if they have the time.

But neither has a full season of experience, so pressure on the QB is seen as a focal point for each defense heading into the big game.

Fort Wayne’s NBC Sports Director Chris Ryan caught up with the signal callers from both sides on Thursday for their thoughts on what they’ll be facing.
