Oklahoma's 45-34 loss means more than a trip back home

Oklahoma's 45-34 loss means more than a trip back home

But that was before Murray led Oklahoma to a berth in the CFB and collected a Heisman trophy for his efforts along the way.

Trailing 28-0 after the first 17 minutes against top-ranked Alabama on Saturday night, the No. 4-ranked Sooners gallantly fought back before succumbing 45-34 in the Capital One Orange Bowl at muggy Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. But two onside kicks failed, and Alabama ran the final 4:23 off the clock after Oklahoma's last score.

While the player who didn't win the Heisman Trophy completed his first nine passes for 174 yards and four touchdowns, Murray was 1-for-5 for 18 yards and minus-1 rushing yard after being sacked twice.

471 - Total yards of offense by Oklahoma against Alabama, the most by any team against the Crimson Tide this season. "He said 'I love you, ' I told him 'I love you, too.' Aside from that, I just told him 'great season'. It was fun. I mean, it was a heavy hitter just like we all expected", he said.

Boston College running back AJ Dillon recorded the only score of the game before the game was called off. Dillon capped Boston College's first offensive possession of the game with a 19-yard touchdown run. "We played against a good team today and we won, and I am really proud of our players". But you've got to keep doing that. We say nearly, because, his reaction was 100 percent real. "I think that should be anybody's goal".

"We're not really satisfied people around here", Murray added. Offensive coordinator Cale Gundy didn't even know Murray was sick until he got into the vehicle that took the Sooners to the interview site and realized his Heisman victor wasn't along for the ride.

This year's version of Nick Saban's machine did things a little bit differently, killing teams early and often with offense rather than slowly choking them out on defense.

We've seen the outcome on that too many times.

The Crimson Tide need one more win for their sixth national title in the past decade.

"We're still on the rest of y'all (bus)", he said.

"I always felt like it might be, honestly", Murray said. I feel like we've started to... we kinda started out a few years ago saying, hey, we've gotta be more current.

Williams was asked about the Heisman victor Thursday before Saturday's Orange Bowl College Football Playoff semifinal between No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 4 Alabama. "If we could have done anything morning, he caught eight, we probably should have thrown him about 20", Riley said. Brown thought he would be able to go, but once the game started, he realized he was not at full strength. I think we made some adjustments offensively.

At that a point, the referee allegedly came to the OU sideline and said, "Fellas, you're on your own".

Clemson and Alabama are playing in the College Football Playoff, and for the third time in four years it is for the national championship. We just looked at each other in the eyes and knew that we wanted to go accomplish something, and luckily we did.
