Alabama's defense appears to be quite ready to face Kyler Murray and the Oklahoma offense later this evening.

The Crimson Tide have heard all about Murray and how great he is. Nick Saban's team is ready to quiet some of that hype.

ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit revealed this morning just how ready Alabama's defense is.

Herbstreit said on College GameDay this morning that "Alabama defenders have been getting so worked up about stopping Oklahoma’s offense/Kyler Murray that fights have broken out during bowl practices this week."

An angry Alabama team is not a team I would want to play.

The Crimson Tide and the Sooners are set to kick off at 8 p.m. E.T.

Alabama enters the contest as a sizable favorite.

The game will be televised on ESPN.
