Capital One Orange Bowl | Oklahoma Sooners & Clemson Tigers Injury Update

New, 10 comments
David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma Sooners and Clemson Tigers square off in the Orange Bowl with a chance to play for a national championship on the line. All eyes remain focused on quarterback Deshaun Watson, the FWAA First Team All-American and quarterback Baker Mayfield, the Second Team All-American. The play of these two dynamic playmakers likely decides the outcome of the game. With a head-to-head look, the media may crown one as the 2016 Heisman campaign....but it's far too early to discuss that subject matter.

Regardless, Clemson will be without an offensive weapon as breaking news hit days ago when Dabo Swinney suspended three players after arriving in Miami. On the flip side of the equation, Sooner fans have witnessed a few names disappear from the official roster. Here's a complete injury and suspension break down for each program.
