The Latest: Dreary weather not an issue at the Cotton Bowl

The Latest on the College Football Playoff semifinals at the Cotton and Orange Bowls (all times EST):

7 p.m.

Clemson is a step closer to another College Football Playoff championship game.

Travis Etienne has raced 62 yards for a touchdown with 2:04 left in the third quarter of the semifinal game Saturday at the Cotton Bowl, putting the No. 2 Tigers up 30-3 over No. 3 Notre Dame.

The Fighting Irish had allowed only five plays of 40 yards or more while going 12-0 in the regular season. Clemson has three such plays — all for touchdowns.

The Tigers are trying to get to the College Football Playoff title game for the third time in four years. They lost to Alabama three seasons ago, and beat the Crimson Tide for the national title the following season.
