For the Alabama and Oklahoma football programs, tomorrow's the big day.

The two powerhouse programs are set to meeting in the Orange Bowl, in the No. 1 vs. No. 4 game of the College Football Playoff semifinals.

Alabama rolled through the regular season with an undefeated record, dominating most of the teams along the way, with Tua Tagovailoa putting up Heisman-worthy numbers, and barely needing to play in fourth quarters.

Things were a little shaky in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia, especially after a largely-ineffective Tagovailoa was knocked out of the game. Jalen Hurts entered and dominated, securing yet another Playoff berth for the Tide.

It was Oklahoma's Kyler Murray that wound up edging out Tagovailoa for the Heisman, with his impressive numbers, and efficiency that even outdid the Alabama quarterback despite having to carry the team.

Oklahoma was not as dominant across the board, though. The team lost to Texas during the year, a game it avenged in the Big 12 Championship, and had serious defensive struggles.

Alabama and Oklahoma will play in the later game of the back-to-back College Football Playoff semifinals.

The game from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami will kick off at approximately 8 p.m. ET.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN, with Sean McDonough, Todd Blackledge and Holly Rowe on the call.

The winner will face the Clemson-Notre Dame Cotton Bowl winner in the National Championship Game.
