MIAMI GARDENS, Fla | Orange Bowl gets an Alabama-Oklahoma CFP matchup
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla — Alabama was the easy pick. Oklahoma was the difficult choice.
They’re on equal footing now.
Top-seeded Alabama (13-0) will continue its quest for a second consecutive national championship in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 29, when the Crimson Tide will take on the fourth-seeded Sooners (12-1) — who got to the College Football Playoff semifinals on the strength of their Big 12 championship win over Texas.
“Sooner Nation, we just got some great news,” Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in a video posted to Twitter shortly after the announcement was made.
