Oklahoma is about to kick off against Alabama in the Orange Bowl in the second College Football Playoff semifinal. It looks like they will have Marquise Brown on the field tonight.

The electrifying Brown has been dealing with the effects of an ankle injury he suffered in the Big 12 Championship Game. His status was in doubt in the weeks leading up to the game.

According to Oklahoma, Brown will play tonight.

What remains to be seen is how effective he will be.

Brown has been Kyler Murray's top target this season. He's made 75 receptions for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Alabama and Oklahoma will kick off in a few minutes on ESPN.

The winner will play Clemson in the national title game. The Tigers beat Notre Dame 30-3 in the Cotton Bowl.
