The Orange Bowl appears to be a blowout, and Alabama fans are already celebrating. It took less than one quarter for supporters of the Crimson Tide to poke fun at Oklahoma.

Alabama took a 21-0 lead in the first quarter, and widened it to 28-0 early in the second quarter. After every touchdown, you could hear fans in attendance in Miami chanting "overrated" at the Sooners.

The Sooners, obviously, are ranked No. 4 in the College Football Playoff. Alabama fans clearly don't think they belonged.

Unfortunately, both College Football Playoff games have been lopsided.

Kyler Murray is going to have to pull off a miracle to lead Oklahoma back.

Barring a miraculous comeback, Alabama will meet Clemson in the national title game next Monday. It'll be the third time in four years that the two teams have met in the championship.

Earlier in the day, Clemson crushed Notre Dame, 30-3, in another game where people questioned inclusion. The Fighting Irish couldn't get much going on offense against Clemson's defense.
