Orange Bowl: Can the Oklahoma Sooners defense stop Alabama?

Oklahoma’s Amani Bledsoe has heard the whispers, the noise, the criticisms.

He knows what the outside world is expecting to happen on Saturday when the fourth-ranked Sooners face top-ranked Alabama in the Orange Bowl on Saturday night for a spot in the College Football Playoff national championship game.

He knows Alabama is the favorite to win at Hard Rock Stadium this weekend and the Sooners defense faces its toughest test yet.

But above it all, know this: Bledsoe doesn’t care what the people on the outside think about his team.

Oklahoma (12-1) is still competing for a national championship, so the Sooners have every intention of being the team that breaks the Alabama offense enough to leave South Florida with a win.

“If that’s the case, so be it,” Bledsoe said about being underdogs in Saturday’s game. “We’ve been doubted a lot as a team and we don’t really care. We’re going to play our best football at the end of the day. … All we really need is for the people in that locker room to believe.

“We believe in each other.”
