Tensions run high between Oklahoma, Clemson players before Orange Bowl


Stakes and tensions are high in Miami on Thursday as Oklahoma and Clemson square off for a shot at the National Championship.

These two teams met in last year’s Russell Athletic Bowl, where Clemson won by 34 points, much to Oklahoma’s embarrassment.
