It was a tale of two seasons for head coach Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers. On October 28, the Tigers lost 24-17 at NC State to fall to 4-4 and into a season on the brink. But the following week against Notre Dame, Swinney showed tremendous leadership in a 31-23 home win over Notre Dame to spark a four-game winning streak to end the campaign on a high note. After the win over the Fighting Irish, Swinney warned America to buy stock on Clemson. So far, that has proven to be good advice. Clemson got the money in its last four games. Clemson will face the Kentucky Wildcats in the Gator Bowl.

Weitz made kicks from 50, 49, and 42 yards, while safety Khalil Barnes returned a fumble for a touchdown as Clemson won its fourth straight game and its eighth in the past nine meetings with the Gamecocks.
