On Saturday night, the Clemson Tigers dominated the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Cotton Bowl to secure their spot in the title game. While the first leg of the College Football Playoff is in the books, the second is sure to give fans a better game.

Oklahoma and Alabama are set to kick off in just over a half hour. Before kickoff, there was an on-field altercation between an Oklahoma coach and the Alabama players hoping to take the field.

According to reporters in the area, Oklahoma tight ends coach Shane Beamer had to be asked by referees to leave the Alabama players alone.

We're not sure Oklahoma's coaches want to be poking the bear that is the Crimson Tide ahead of a huge game. Nick Saban and company enter the game as a two-touchdown favorite against one of the worst defenses in college football.

Alabama and Oklahoma kick off at 8:10 p.m. ET.
