On Saturday night, the Alabama Crimson Tide took down the Oklahoma Sooners in the Orange Bowl to move on to their fourth-straight national title appearance. The Tide will once again face off against Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers after the Tigers dominant performance against Notre Dame.

After the win, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa gave a brief update on his injured ankle as the Tide look forward to battling Clemson in just over a week.

Instead of giving a generic answer like "it's fine" Tua surprised those watching at home. Tagovailoa revealed his ankle is still "uncertain" after undergoing surgery just four weeks ago.

The ankle didn't hurt Tua's performance on Saturday night as he led the Tide to a 45-34 win over the Sooners on Saturday night. He tossed the ball for over 300 yards and four touchdowns en route to being named the offensive MVP.

Now, he'll get a few days to get healthy for the title game against Clemson.
