How about those Tigers! (Clemson Tigers)

Happy New Year from Atlanta!  How about those Clemson Tigers!  Let’s hear it for the ACC!!  14 Clemson upsets 8 LSU at the Chick-fil-A bowl in Atlanta, 25 – 24, kicking a game winning field goal with 2 seconds left in the 4th quarter.  This is the first time in thirty one years Clemson has finished with 11 wins.

Clemson star Sammy Watkins goes out injured early in the first quarter after fumbling, and LSU goes  in for a TD.  Clemson trailed most of the game but never gave up.  If you had said the Clemson’s defense would be the difference maker, no one would have believed it, but with 7 forced three and outs, they were!  What can you say about Tajh Boyd!  The 4th down pass he sent to Hopkins was special delivery by Fed Ex.  What a comeback, especially after last year’s debacle in the Orange Bowl. Great win for Clemson over a top notch SEC opponent.  Great win for the ACC!!

Did I mention Georgia Tech beat USC today as well in the Sun Bowl??  I think I did!

In other news, Boise State will stay a member of the Mountain West in football in 2013.  Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder received the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award at halftime of the Chick-fil-A bowl.  Congrats to a very worthy recipient of this prestigious award.

Again, let’s hear it for the ACC.  Way to go Clemson!  Way to go GT!

Happy New Year everybody!  Six bowl games tomorrow!
