No. 1 Clemson Beats Oklahoma to Advance to National Championship Game

It wasn't even close.

At WSJ, "No. 1 Clemson Beats Oklahoma, 37-17, in Orange Bowl":

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.--So much for Clemsoning.

The Tigers are headed to the national championship game.

Deshaun Watson turned in another stellar two-way performance, running for one touchdown, passing for another and accounting for 332 yards to lead top-ranked Clemson to a 37-17 victory over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on Thursday.

Clemson (14-0) dominated the second half and shut down Oklahoma’s high-scoring offense, which had averaged 52 points over its last seven contests. The Sooners (11-2) actually came into the game as favorites, but the Tigers showed their perfect record was no fluke.

Until this season, the Tigers were known for such inexplicable disappointments that a term was coined for it--Clemsoning.

With one more win, they’ll be known as something else.

National champions...
