MIAMI - No. 1 Clemson and Oklahoma have arrived in South Florida for their College Football Playoff semifinal at the Orange Bowl.

Both teams were welcomed Saturday afternoon with a water cannon salute, an orange carpet rolled out on the tarmac and bowl officials in orange blazers handing out fresh oranges. The Tigers and Sooners play on New Year's Eve.

Despite severe weather in Norman, fourth-ranked Oklahoma arrived first, at about 1 p.m., at Miami International Airport, with players deplaning in sweatshirts. Meanwhile, Clemson, making its third appearance at the Orange in five years, landed in Fort Lauderdale about 5:30 p.m., an hour later than scheduled because of plane maintenance before departure. Clemson players descended the steps suits and ties.
