MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) The latest developments from the College Football Playoff national semifinal game between Clemson and Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl (local time):
The Gatorade coolers on the sidelines at Sun Life Stadium are already getting quite a workout, and kickoff of the Orange Bowl is about an hour away.
Put simply, it's hot in South Florida.
The temperature on the field was 83 degrees at 3 p.m., and factoring in the 71 percent humidity made it feel like 89 degrees outside when the Tigers and Sooners were going through their warmups. It is unseasonably warm, even for South Florida, with some weather stations around the area reporting record highs for this date.
So cramping very easily could be a factor in the first of today's CFP semifinals.
