Know About The Previous Matches
Clemson beat the Tigers in their second College Football Bowl Game in three seasons on Saturday night to earn its third straight national championship. The Tigers put up a fight against the eventual national champions and nearly pulled off a miracle upset to win this second game. Coach Dabo Swinney’s squad finally came through in a big way as it defeated the Tigers 35-24 in overtime.
Clemson fans are now celebrating their victory over Clemson by wearing orange, black and white gear. It is the school’s trademark color scheme that makes this particular football season even more special. Clemson beat Oklahoma in their season opener, so this was the first of two home games for the Tigers.
Clemson’s defense played better than anticipated against the Tigers. Linebacker Tray Matthews led the way with five tackles including two sacks. Safety Terrish Webb had an excellent night in coverage that included making a key interception that set up another score for Clemson. Cornerback Denzel Johnson played a great game as well, making one huge play late to steal the victory from the Tigers.
Defensive Tackle Kelvin Greene
Defensive tackle Kevin Greene was the difference maker against Clemson this season. The junior played every down and finished with seven tackles, including two sacks and a fumble recovery. Tight end Jordan Leggett also showed why he is one of the most talented offensive players in this year’s draft with his strong play.
Performance Of Quarterback Deshaun Watson
Quarterback Deshaun Watson continued to impress this season and earned a first team All-American nod from ESPN after throwing for 456 yards and four scores on just eight attempts. Watson was also named the offensive player of the week and defensive player of the week, but didn’t receive any recognition as the quarterback of the game. He was however named the game’s most valuable player by the coaches.
The Tigers had a great offensive day on offense as well with an average of 5 yards per rush. running back Wayne Gallman added three catches for 35 yards and a scoring strike on a fake field goal to tie the game at one.
In his book, Clemson Football Stuff says, “It is time to turn this program around. This team has to start playing championship caliber football immediately, otherwise it is going to be a disaster. There are too many holes to fill and too many injuries to fix.”
The Tigers look like they will make a run at the SEC East title and a third straight playoff appearance. If they can beat a ranked LSU team on Friday night, they will be able to keep their conference championship hopes alive.
