Clemson crushes Notre Dame in College Football Playoff

What does Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams really think of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray?

Oklahoma's quarterback scored on an 8-yard keeper with 4:23 left, and the Sooners are within 11 points again at the Orange Bowl.

For most of the offseason, Kyler Murray's 2018 football campaign was discussed as a one-off with Murray's presence allowing Oklahoma to continue its explosive offensive ways under coach Lincoln Riley after the departure of three-year starter and Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield. Granted, Oklahoma was ranked 130thin passing defense, but Alabama's offense seemed more interested in playing its game than trying to exploit the Sooners' weaknesses. "Pretty damn close to winning the game so I couldn't ask for much more out of my teammates".

"When I saw an opportunity to score, I just tried my best to score", Jacobs said with a chuckle. Tagovailoa completed 67% of his passes for over 3,300 yards with 37 touchdowns and just four interceptions. "I'm sure it'll be a great challenge for us, and I'm sure we'll need to play better than we did today". "It's your job. You've got to compete for your team, for the university, for the state".

Last season, when the semifinals were played on New Year's Day and Georgia and Oklahoma went to overtime in the Rose Bowl, the games averaged a 13.9 overnight rating. "That's what we've been doing all year", Wilkins said.

"You go down 28-0, I think most teams in the league or in the whole damn country would have gave up against a team like that", Murray said. They have a chance to finish 15-0, which hasn't been done at the top level of college football since Penn went 15-0 in 1897.

United put in a superb performance and scored five league goals in a game for the first time since the Sir Alex Ferguson era. "If we played the 27th then the 25th would have been the day off, but the 26th means we train on the 25th, that's normal".

This year's version of Nick Saban's machine did things a little bit differently, killing teams early and often with offense rather than slowly choking them out on defense.

The big guy will be up to his navel in oranges come the championship game against Swinney and Clemson.

Riley wouldn't let Bolton take the fall, however. The Tide had five (FIVE) receivers average over 17 yards per catch this season, and, as usual, they had a pounding running game. "Just continue to do what we did all year".

Williams was asked about the Heisman victor Thursday before Saturday's Orange Bowl College Football Playoff semifinal between No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 4 Alabama. "And I really wonder if the football bug is too strong for him to say no".

The Oklahoma Sooners have had it made for quite a while now when it comes to quarterbacks.

The question now, of course, is what Murray (and his coach, Lincoln Riley) will decide to do in the coming weeks. But when you look at it, we're both competitors. "If we could have done anything morning, he caught eight, we probably should have thrown him about 20", Riley said. For the time being, his focus is directly on the college football playoff semifinal game on Saturday against the defending champion Alabama Crimson Tide.
