I’m in Oklahoma and just got 2 new crepe myrtle trees they are about 3 ft tall can I plant in ground now or should I wait till spring?

Just had a first freeze here. I know they will survive my winters –  just need to know if I can plant in the ground in November and that they will be ok.

November is technically still fall so I would go ahead and plant them. Sometimes it's harder to overwinter a plant than to go ahead and plant them outside. Be sure to keep them watered till established. If a weather forecast calls for really low temps before it is established (in about a month) cover the plant to protect it.
