Now the 12-time Big 12 champions wait to find out if all of that is good enough to get back into the College Football Playoff.
Alabama: 9th appearance in the Orange Bowl, 69th bowl game overall.
"I've probably never been more proud of a player than Jalen", an emotional coach Nick Saban said moments after the triumph. Tagovailoa will be out for the two weeks leading up to this game, which could hamper his performance. However, the big question now is this: can they keep up with the Crimson Tide?
The referees reviewed the play and overturned the call on the field to a touchdown for Alabama. The Sooners had the worst passing defense in all of college football this season, and they allowed more points per game (32.4) than all but 34 teams. Even if Tagovailoa isn't 100%, Hurts played extremely well against the Bulldogs, and no matter who is out there for Alabama, it's hard to imagine the team struggling to move the ball against Oklahoma.
Kim Jong Un Open To North Korea Nuclear Site Inspection
After arriving at Panmun Station at 9 a.m., a North Korean locomotive will take the six South Korean carriages to the North. Trump has agreed to resume the talks and also hold his second bilateral summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
-Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State, threw for 499 yards and added five more TD passes to his single-season record, helping the No. 6 Buckeyse hold off a second-half charge from No. 21 Northwestern for a 45-24 victory.
Simply put, this is the biggest challenge that Oklahoma has faced this season.
Georgia: The Bulldogs will be kicking themselves for the way they let this one slip away. The fake punt was a baffling decision - a direct snap to backup quarterback Justin Fields, who looked like he wanted to throw, took off running and didn't come close to picking up the first down. The college football odds for the game have the Crimson Tide listed as a two-touchdown favorite to pick up the win. Alabama also dominates games on the ground, with a stable of talented runners playing behind one of the nation's better offensive lines.
Georgia: The Bulldogs are hoping to land a playoff spot but will likely have to settle for a trip to the Sugar Bowl as a consolation prize.
