Cool Orange Bowl 2018

FOR ALL THOSE INTERESTED: BOOMER SOONER YA'LL!

Orange Bowl 2018

"Saturday's second College Football Playoff semifinal matchup features a pair of conference champions battling for the opportunity to play for the national championship. Alabama, the SEC champions, will begin its quest for a second straight national title against Oklahoma, the Big 12 champions.

The Crimson Tide, entering the matchup at 13-0, are in the CFP for the fifth straight season. They have won the national title in two of the previous three years.

The Sooners, who are 12-1, are seeking their first CFP win. They previously lost semifinal matchups in the 2015 and 2017 seasons. Last season, they were defeated by Georgia in two overtimes in the Rose Bowl.

Alabama owns only one win over Oklahoma, which came in 1963. The Sooners have taken the last three meetings between the two schools, including the last one in 2014."

Orange Bowl Information

Date: Saturday, Dec. 29

Haha, Sir!

Yes, they did.. But they did not quit, and they did not give-up!!!

A good lesson for a bunch of kids to learn, and that's why I love college football...and my Sooners!

It was a great game to watch. Going in, I thought Tua should have been the Heisman winner. He only played the first 3 quarters of (almost) every game this season or he would likely have crushed NCAA passing records. He’s an amazing talent to watch. I do give credit to Murray as well though as he’s incredibly gifted, especially as a runner/scrambler.

Roll Tide!

Always interested in seeing who makes the transition to the next level. The runner/scramblers never seem to survive the speed and violence at the NFL level.

Good luck to Tua.
