We're 10 days away from the College Football Playoff semifinals. Alabama will meet Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl in one of those matchups.

Alabama's starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is still recovering from a high ankle sprain he suffered against Georgia in the SEC Championship Game. He was replaced by Jalen Hurts, who helped lead an epic comeback.

In the weeks since that game, reports out of Tuscaloosa have indicated that Tagovailoa is making progress. Nick Saban said yesterday his QB was "ahead of schedule."

Tagovailoa's latest update on himself should make Crimson Tide fans very happy.

Today, he told reporters he will "probably be 100 percent" by the time kickoff comes around next weekend.

Tagovailoa has thrown for 3.353 yards, 37 touchdowns and only four interceptions this season.

Alabama and Oklahoma will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 29. ESPN will broadcast the game.

The winner will face the winner of Clemson-Notre Dame for the national championship.
