The College Football Playoff kicks off in just a few days as No. 1 Alabama takes on No. 4 Oklahoma and No. 2 Clemson faces off against No. 3 Notre Dame. Ahead of the two biggest games of bowl season comes the media availability for the top players from all four teams.

On Wednesday morning, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray was scheduled to meet with the media. However, the star quarterback was reportedly "under the weather" and missed the media availability segment.

Just a few hours later, Murray showed up at Oklahoma's practice. According to ESPN's Laura Rutledge, Murray "wants to do as much as possible" at practice this week despite the illness.

Rutledge reported Murray "doesn't feel great" but all indications are that he'll be ready to go when the Sooners take the field against the Crimson Tide on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa revealed he's at 80-85-percent heading into the Orange Bowl. Hopefully both quarterbacks are healthy when they take the field on Saturday.
