The undefeated Clemson Tigers want a perfect ending to their football season, but they’ll have to first beat the Oklahoma Sooners in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 31. It’ll be an exciting College Football Playoff semifinal and HollywoodLife.com wants you to see every second of the action!
They’re the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff and the Clemson Tigers are ready to show the world why. The undefeated team rolls into the Capital One Orange Bowl without a single loss. Will it all come crashing down, thanks to the Oklahoma Sooners, or will the Tigers take the Orange Bowl trophy to the championship game?
Clemson and Oklahoma will travel down to Sun Life Stadium in sunny Miami Gardens, Florida, for the Orange Bowl on Dec. 31. Clemson looks to keep their unblemished record intact, but Oklahoma is looking for revenge. The action kicks off at 4 p.m. EST, so be ready for some of the best college football this season!
Oklahoma is still stinging from their 40-6 loss in last year’s Russell Athletic Bowl, according to Bleacher Report. There’s nothing the Sooners would love more than to give the Tigers their very first loss and end their Championship dreams. Though they were creamed in last year’s meeting, the Sooners are a much different team.
However, since Clemson has outscored their opponents a staggering 500-263 this season, thanks to Heisman Trophy finalist Deshaun Watson. The Tigers are looking for history to repeat, with them heading towards the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 11.
But the Tigers will have to play without Deon Cain, Ammon Lakip and Jay Jay McCollough, as the three Clemson players were suspended from the Playoff matchup for violating the team’s rules, according to Deadspin. Each of the three players reportedly failed a drug test. While Deon, who has five touchdowns, will be missed, head coach Dabo Swinney said that “It helps that we have a big roster and a lot of good players,” reports Greenville Online.
Will Coach Swinney’s confidence be his downfall, with Oklahoma pulling off an upset? Or will the Tigers remain perfect? There’s only one way to find out, football fans!
Who do you want to win, HollywoodLifers? Clemson or Oklahoma?
