The College Football Playoff semifinals are still weeks away, but Oklahoma is already off to a good start this postseason.

For the past five seasons, Flipper the Dolphin has correctly predicted the winner of the Orange Bowl. On Thursday afternoon, Flipper was given a choice between Clemson and Oklahoma to move on to the national title game.

Flipper went with the Sooners.

Clemson is No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings, while Oklahoma is No 4. You have to love Flipper going out on a limb and rolling with Bob Stoops’ squad.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
