We've got one half in the books at the Orange Bowl. Alabama has dominated Oklahoma.

The Crimson Tide jumped out to a 28-0 lead and now are up 31-10 at intermission. This has been a beatdown since the opening kickoff.

Damien Harris has rushed for two touchdowns for Alabama, while Tua Tagovailoa has tossed a pair. Tagovailoa found Henry Ruggs and Josh Jacobs for his two scores.

Alabama has also held Murray to 6-of-13 passing for 122 yards. He's rushed for 46 yards on nine carries, and 35 of those came on the final two plays of the half.

ESPN's prediction for the second half is out. Not surprisingly, it is all Alabama.

The Crimson Tide have a 98 percent chance to win according to the computer.
