CBSSports.com has released its bowl preview with confidence levels on different Vegas spreads.

Clemson is currently a 3.5-4.5 point underdog and the website has Oklahoma as one of their "locks of the week" to cover the spread against their opponent.

hasn't played, and he's not going to play in this one. Meanwhile, Trevor Knight is back for the Sooners -- a team who lost four games this season, yes, but lost three of them to quality contenders TCU, Kansas State and Baylor, the first two of those by skin-of-the-teeth margins. And of course, the upset loss to Oklahoma State came with Knight on the sidelines. A line this small feels like an overreaction to both teams' previous games, especially when neither one will start the same quarterback they did that Saturday.

The Tigers have the #1 total defense in the nation (259.6 ypg) and 62th ranked in total offense (410.1 ypg). The Tiger's defense has 44 sacks on the season and is ranked #1 in the nation with 122 tackles for loss.

In contrast, Oklahoma is 54th ranked in total defense (382.3 ypg) and 20th ranked in total offense (480.5 ypg). Running back Samaje Perine has rushed for 1,579 yards and 21 touchdowns this season.
