The Clemson Tigers and Oklahoma Sooners will travel down to sunny Miami, Florida to face off in the Orange Bowl on December 31. Kick off will be at 4:00 p.m. ET for one of the most exciting games of the year. Casual and die hard fans alike cannot miss watching the College Football Playoff Semifinal game live.
Due to the broadcast agreements between college football and ABC and the ESPN family of networks, a large amount of the bowl games will be aired on these channels. ESPN owns the broadcast rights to the game and will be your resource to watch the Orange Bowl live. Thankfully, even if you do not have cable you can still access ESPN. There are now services that live stream ESPN without the need for a cable subscription, such as Sling TV. Read on to find out how you can watch Clemson vs Oklahoma live with our guide below.
Clemson Tigers vs Oklahoma Sooners Preview
The Clemson Tigers have been the best team in college football this year and their number one ranking in the AP Poll is just one indication of their explosive power this season. There is no denying their dominance as they ended the regular season undefeated with a 13-0 record. Led by Heisman candidate Deshaun Watson, Clemson has regularly beaten up on top opponents with its blend of a high-powered offense and stout defense. Victories over ranked opponents like Notre Dame, Florida State, and North Carolina are some of the key highlights from the Tigers’ season. Clemson looks ahead to hopefully two more games this season and fully intend to finish the year undefeated as National Champions.
The Oklahoma Sooners were not expected to be one of the best teams in the country at the beginning of the season. They were ranked 19th in the AP Poll to start the season, but have slowly but surely worked their way up to 4th. A loss to Texas earlier in the season was the Sooners’ only blemish. But, Oklahoma rallied to finish the season with consecutive wins over Baylor, TCU, and Oklahoma State who were all ranked within the top-12 at the time of the match up. Oklahoma fans are hoping their Sooners can topple the undefeated Tigers and start their final climb to the top of college football by playing for a National Championship.
With two of the best teams in college football going head to head, the 2015 Orange Bowl promises to be a game to remember! Are you ready for the action?
Watch the Orange Bowl Live Stream Online With Sling TV
Since the beginning of 2015 when Dish Network launched Sling TV, it has been a leading alternative for cable cutters looking to remove the need for an expensive cable subscription. Its popularity has grown due to it being one of the few services that let you stream live sporting events. ESPN is included in its basic package, which means if you subscribe for Sling TV prior to the Orange Bowl you can watch Clemson vs Oklahoma live without a cable package.
The basic package of Sling TV features over 20 popular cable channels. Many of these channels are normally only accessible with a cable package, but Sling TV lets you live stream them on your tablet, computer, phone, or even your TV with a connected device. Some of the channels included in the package are TBS, AMC, TNT, ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN3 (By accessing WatchESPN with your Sling TV credentials). Sling TV’s diverse channel offering will let you watch a large majority of the bowl games and specifically the match up between Clemson and Oklahoma live.
Starting at only $20 per month, Sling TV’s basic package is a great deal. Plus, it does not require a contract allowing you to cancel your subscription any time.

For just $5 more per month you can add channels focused on a specific niche. The Sports Extra Package is one of my favorites. The $5 extra each month gets you access to channels like ESPNU, ESPNEWS, SEC Network, and ESPN Goal Line. We have more details in our full review.
