Alabama beats Oklahoma, faces Clemson in NCAA title game

The College Football Playoff was cool and all, but the real story is Kevin Murray, father of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray.

Murray has thrown for 4,053 yards, 40 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.

Despite the questions about if coach Lincoln Riley's defense can slow down Alabama on offense, the most anticipated matchup features a high-powered Oklahoma offense, which leads the nation in total offense (577.9 YPG) and scoring (49.5 PPG) going against Alabama's defense, which only allows 14.8 points per game, fourth-fewest in the country. "If I were (players) and their families, I would ask it, too".

"When I saw an opportunity to score, I just tried my best to score", Jacobs said with a chuckle. He completed his first eight passes for 148 yards, leading Alabama to three straight scoring drives and a 21-0 lead in the blink of an eye. "I thought once Rambo scored that, I was pretty sure we were gonna win the game". "You've just got to go out there and fight". Riley has been to the playoff in both of his two years with Oklahoma. The last time that we overlooked Murray's ability to overcome obstacles, he finished with a Heisman in his hand. "I think it's as simple as that". Losing the Heisman to Murray was not a huge injustice because of just how good Murray was in every facet and in closing out the year. This was the quarterback who got knocked around all season long and kept coming back stronger to show why he is considered by many to be the most gifted passer in the sport.

Recently, NFL Reporter Albert Breer tweeted out a random video compilation of Murray's "Ultimate" High School highlights.

"I'm really proud of our team, it was a great win for us", Saban said in the postgame TV interview. The 28-0 start left other fan bases like Georgia, Ohio State and UCF openly wondering what would happen if they were at the Orange Bowl, but it's easy to say "We want Bama" when that's a hypothetical discussion.

"We're still on the rest of y'all (bus)", he said.

Marquis Brown ended the game with zero catches, despite being targeted several times through three quarters.

Maybe Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley will leave for the NFL and the Bucs after seeing there was no future in the College Football Playoff, not with Nick Saban and Alabama pulling its first-half velociraptor act (28-0 lead) before coasting on in for a 45-34 national semifinal Orange Bowl win while making Oklahoma Heisman victor and two-sport wonder Kyler Murray long for A's pitchers and catchers reporting.

The Irish were on the wrong end of a 30-3 rout laid on them courtesy of Trevor Lawrence and the Clemson Tigers, who are headed for another meeting with Alabama.

Afterward, this year's top two Heisman finishers exchanged pleasantries.

He added: "I mean, that's what it really came down to. Just continue to do the common things in an uncommon way and maybe we'll command the attention of the world".
