Brian Kelly and Nick Saban expect many restless nights between now and the BCS championship game on Jan. 7.
Kelly and top-ranked Notre Dame play Saban and No. 2 Alabama in Miami. The coaches appeared together at a news conference Wednesday at the Nasdaq stock exchange in Times Square.
Asked what about their opponent will keep them up at night, Kelly and Saban both said there is plenty to worry about.
Kelly said: "Are you kidding me? Really? Everything about them."
Saban's response: "For me, I never sleep well, so Notre Dame is just the excuse now."
