The No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners take on the No. 1 Clemson Tigers in the Orange Bowl on Thursday.

The Tigers finished the regular season undefeated, holding off North Carolina 45–37 in the ACC title game on Dec. 5. Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson threw three touchdowns and ran for two more for 420 yards of total offense in the win.

The Sooners completed the regular season with just one loss, which came against the Texas Longhorns on Oct. 10. Headed into Thursday’s game, Oklahoma has had over a month to prepare after defeating the Oklahoma State Cowboys 58–23 on Nov. 28. Quarterback Baker Mayfield threw two touchdown passes and ran for one more score in the win to help lead his team to the Big 12 title.
