Russell Athletic Bowl: Clemson Tigers vs. Oklahoma Sooners Recap

The Russell Athletic Bowl was over soon after it began. The Clemson Tigers jumped out to a 17 - 0 first quarter lead, and were up 27 - 0 by the time halftime rolled around. The Sooners defense had no answer for Clemson quarterback Cole Stoudt who threw for 3 touchdowns and ran for one more. The Sooners were not able to make any adjustments at halftime and found themselves down 40 - 6 after the third quarter.

Oklahoma also doomed themselves with five turnovers. Leading the way was sophomore quarterback Trevor Knight who had three interceptions. One of those interceptions was returned for a 47 yard touchdown in the first quarter which helped Clemson get out to an early 17 point lead. Oklahoma was finally able to score after Clemson pulled most of their senior defensive starters in the fourth quarter.
