"We are just taking a walk you know. Just trying to release our mind from everything. It's a lot of emotion right now," said Rodgers.

"We expect it to go down to the end. That's just our mindset so we can go hard through the first and fourth quarter," said Kendrick.

The Allstate Championship Tailgate is open for ticket holders. Food, drinks, and a big ESPN presence. Keith Urban is also playing for the fans.

David and Laigha Miller are big Alabama fans from Mobile. This is the first time they've been to California and they're hoping to witness another National Championship win for the Crimson Tide.
