Clemson and the Chick-fil-A Bowl
Clemson (10-1) has made eight appearances in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, most recently in 2012 with a 25-24 victory over LSU. Clemson has also appeared in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game twice.

South Carolina and the Chick-fil-A Bowl
South Carolina (9-2) has made two appearances in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, most recently in 2010 against Florida State. The Gamecocks also competed in the 1969 Bowl game against West Virginia.

Chick-fil-A Bowl Achieves Earliest Sellout in its History
There has not been a Chick-fil-A Bowl game ticket available for sale on game day in 18 years, and this year will be no different. The final ACC vs. SEC rivalry game before the Chick-fil-A Bowl joins the College Football Playoffs next year will be its 17th straight sellout – a streak only exceeded by the Rose Bowl.

About the Chick-fil-A Bowl
Now in its 46th year, the Chick-fil-A Bowl has established itself as one of the nation’s elite bowl games with a string of 17 consecutive sellouts. The Chick-fil-A Bowl leads all other bowl games in charitable and scholarship contributions, and has disbursed more than $117.8 million in team payouts over its 45-year history. Other events under the Chick-fil-A Bowl brand include the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament and the season-opening Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.

In April, the Chick-fil-A Bowl was selected to be a part of a group of six bowls to host the new College Football Playoff beginning in 2014 (Cotton, Fiesta, Orange, Rose, Sugar). Over the next 12 years, the Chick-fil-A Bowl will host a National Semifinal (#1 vs. #4 or #2 vs. #3) every 3 years – the first following the 2016 season. In the other 8 years, the Bowl will host top-ranked teams as assigned by the CFP Selection Committee.
