With just under four weeks left until No. 4 Oklahoma faces No. 1 Alabama for a bushel of fruit called the Orange Bowl in the College Football Playoff semifinal, video columnist RJ Young took an in-depth look at how OU arrived in its third playoff in five years and just what the Sooners are up against in the Crimson Tide.
There’s no sugar-coating this for Sooner fans. This group is perhaps Alabama coach Nick Saban‘s best ever with a Heisman hopeful at quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa and a receiving corps, running backs and a defensive line fit for the MonStars.
However, OU coach Lincoln Riley fields the best and most efficient offense in the country. It’s also led by a Heisman hopeful in quarterback Kyler Murray with future NFL talent on the offensive line, in the backfield and lining up on the numbers.
This game promises to be one of the most highly-anticipated of the postseason.
