Alabama is rolling in the first quarter of the Orange Bowl against Oklahoma, and the Crimson Tide went up 14-0 on a tremendous one-handed catch by Henry Ruggs III.

On third-and-goal from the Sooners’ 10-yard line, Tua Tagovailoa threw a perfect pass to the back left corner of the end zone. Despite blanket coverage, Ruggs hauled in the pass with one hand and got a foot in bounds as he was falling out of the end zone.

It looked like Riggs juggled the ball, but then he secured it right as he got the last foot in bounds before falling out of bounds.

It’s all ‘Bama early, and at this point many fans are already looking ahead to the final after Clemson easily won its College Football Playoff semifinal against Notre Dame earlier on Saturday.
