We made it. Clemson and Oklahoma, which turned respective preseason No. 16 and No. 18 rankings in the CBS Sports Preseason 128 into top-four finishes, will battle it out in the first College Football Playoff semifinal on Thursday at the Orange Bowl in Miami.
This game will feature two high-powered offenses with two highly-touted quarterbacks: Heisman finalist Deshaun Watson for Clemson and Mr. Moxie himself, Baker Mayfield, for the Sooners.
Watson had a monster season with 3,512 passing yards, 887 rushing yards and 41 total touchdowns. Mayfield wasn't far behind, throwing for 3,389 yards with 420 rushing yards and 42 total touchdowns. In other words, you can look forward to seeing some points on New Year's Eve.
Watch the Orange Bowl live on ESPN with kickoff set for 4 p.m. ET. You can also stream the game online via WatchESPN.com, which is also offering each team's radio broadcasts to go along with the video stream.
