Ok­la­homa: Quar­ter­back and the reign­ing Heis­man Tro­phy win­ner Kyler Mur­ray was still deal­ing with a cough and some snif­fles Thurs­day, two days be­fore the fourth-ranked Soon­ers will face top-ranked Alabama on Satur­day in the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off semi­fi­nals at the Or­ange Bowl.

Alabama: The Crim­son Tide had three play­ers sus­pended for Satur­day’s Or­ange Bowl game against Ok­la­homa, but the school did not pro­vide de­tails as to why. Coach Nick Sa­ban said start­ing left guard Deonte Brown, tight end Kedrick James and of­fen­sive line­man El­liot Baker com­mit­ted an NCAA vi­o­la­tion and would not play again this sea­son. None of the play­ers made the trip to Mi­ami with the team.

Notre Dame: Coach Brian Kelly said quar­ter­back Bran­don Wim­bush has taken the steps nec­es­sary to trans­fer after this sea­son, but no fi­nal de­ci­sion has been made.
