Dabo's Top-10 wins: Tigers smack Oklahoma in Orange Bowl for first CFP win

Clemson's win over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl set the stage for the Tigers' matchup with Alabama for the National Championship in Phoenix. It was a game marked by trash talk early and interceptions late as Clemson defeated the Sooners for a second straight season. Full Story »



This one was special for me

because I was there. The energy in the stadium that day rivaled that of the national championship game in Tampa, which in my personal experience was the most electric game I have ever attended.

Best play was Christian Wilkins catch on the fake punt from Andy Teasdall


He almost scored on that play. I remember thinking what soft

hands and nimble feet for such a big guy. We knew #42 would be special. That elevated him into elite status and showed his versatility

Best Is The Standard


How about true freshman Christian Wilkins on the fake punt

That could've been called the play of the game as well. Little did we know how much of a superstar he would become. And that would be only the first of several touches for him lol.


And Teasdall getting redemption for his fake punt gaffe in

I couldn't believe how much trash talk leading up the game

was coming from the Sooners--a team we had destroyed literally just a year before. So satisfying to end up punching them in the mouths on the field!

I remember walking out the Orange Bowl that night behind two sooner fans. One guy said to the other, “that was embarrassing”. The other guy said “you talking about our play or the lack of support by our fans?” It was 3/4 Clemson fans vs 1/4 Sooner fans.

I am loving this series. I’ve been watching each game.

I'd have to say that Boulware's flying knee to the head of Mayfield (after picking him off to seal the win, nonetheless) should be in it's own category of top 10 Clemson plays of all-time.

2nd half of that game was a brutal beatdown. Not for Wimmens and children. I was surprised OU could get beat up like that.

Great win for the Tigers!
