Alabama running back Brian Robinson Jr. made a bold statement immediately after defeating the Cincinnati Bearcats 27-6 in Friday's College Football Playoff semifinal at the Cotton Bowl.

Robinson vowed Alabama would repeat as CFP national champion. He made the statement on the podium after receiving the Cotton Bowl's most outstanding offensive player award, rushing for 204 yards on 26 carries against the Bearcats.

"We just know how to fight, man," Robinson said. "We know how to fight 'til the end. We know how to come together as a team, as a unit. Man, we're just warriors. We fight until the end with everything we do. That's why we're going to win the natty — repeat."
