The Orange Bowl is getting ready to give out its orange-filled trophies to Alabama, as the Crimson Tide are handling Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff semifinal game.

Nick Saban's team is a couple of minutes away from another College Football Playoff semifinal victory and a national title game appearance.

The trophy ceremony will take place on ESPN in a couple of minutes.

We had a bit of a controversy with the Alabama-Oklahoma Orange Bowl trophy earlier in the week, though.

A box of California oranges was spotted right next to the Orange Bowl trophy, which is supposed to be filled with Florida oranges - or, at least, you'd think it should be filled with Florida oranges considering where the game takes place .

Check it out:

Hopefully, this was remedied before tonight's game between Alabama and Oklahoma.

The Crimson Tide will move on to the national title game, where it'll face Clemson.
