Tagovailoa has been practicing for the top-ranked Crimson Tide in preparation for the College Football Semifinal matchup against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl.

The boys went to double overtime before Bishop Heelan pulled out a 73-62 victory over Le Mars, handing the Bulldogs their third straight loss.  Le Mars falls to 3-4 at the Christmas break while Heelan improves to 2-6.  Tommy Schiltz and Brant Hogue opened the second overtime with back-to-back treys for the Crusaders and Heelan outscored the Bulldogs 17-6 to win by eleven.  Cole Hogue finished with 20 points to lead Heelan’s scoring attack with Sam O’Hern adding 17 off the bench and Brant Hogue had 15.  Alex Irwin had 20 for Le Mars, Spencer Mackey 17 and Trevor Smith dropped in a career-best 16 points.
