Clemson and Oklahoma players met with the media to preview the 2015 Orange Bowl on Monday morning.

Oklahoma sophomore running back Samaje Perine appeared very confident about his team's chances against a very talented Clemson defense.

"They are a good defense but they have areas where we can expose and I am not going to say anything in particular on camera cause I don't want to be disrespectful but errors are there and we make sure to expose it."

Perine was asked about his impression of the Clemson defense after watching hours of game tape. "Nothing really stands out. Sound defense, rally to the ball real well and they do their assignments."

Perrine was asked about the different front seven that the Clemson defense is putting out there this season compared to last year's team.

"Last years (better). They are bigger and faster (in 2014)," Perrine said. "This year they have pretty good size but last year's Clemson defense they were a lot faster and a lot bigger."

Perine has 211 rushes for 1291 yards and 15 touchdowns this season.

During his freshman campaign, he had 263 rushes for 1713 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns.

In the 2014 Russell Athletic Bowl against Clemson, he rushed 23 times for 134 yards but had 0 touchdowns. Clemson won the game 40-6.
