ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Cole Stoudt threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, and 18th-ranked Clemson routed Oklahoma 40-6 in the Russell Athletic Bowl on Monday.
The Tigers (10-3) reached double-digit victories for the fourth consecutive season. Clemson was 10-4 in 2011, 11-2 in 2012 and 11-2 in 2013.
Stoudt was 26 for 36 for a season-high 319 yards. He was sacked four times, but Clemson never turned the ball over. Meanwhile, the Tigers, who came in ranked No. 1 in the nation in total defense, held the Sooners’ offense to just 275 yards.
Oklahoma (8-5) had five turnovers, including three interceptions by Trevor Knight.
Oklahoma entered the game averaging nearly 40 points but didn’t score until late in the fourth quarter.
The Tigers’ scoring drives were all at least 50 yards.
