I love being wrong about this one. Coming into the game I did not see a scenario where Clemson could have dominated Oklahoma in the fashion it did. I didn't see Clemson having its biggest bowl margin of victory and Oklahoma having their second largest defeat.
Three Touchdown Stoudt
Some had joked and called him "Three and Out Stoudt". Monday night he was "Three Passing Touchdown Stoudt." The senior changed his legacy and how he will be remembered when he comes back to Tigertown.
Stoudt became just the third Clemson quarterback to throw for 300 yards in a bowl game. The others are

There was a lot of talk about how the new offensive coordinators would work out for the Tigers. Some had suggested that Clemson's chance at offensive success had left to be the head coach at SMU. I couldn't be happier for Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott. The 65-yard touchdown pass from

View Full Profile on the first play of the game was the first play call by Clemson co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott, who was working from the press box. Wow. What a way to start your new job.
Streeter has to be on Cloud Nine. He comes home to his alma mater and gets one of his dream jobs. His first game as the quarterback coach and he takes a much maligned guy and gets a 26 of 36 for 319 yards with three touchdowns and no interception performance. And oh yeah, he gets to work with

View Full Profile had huge games. Scott had 114 yards receiving and Williams added 112. It marked the first time Clemson has had a pair of 100-yard receivers in a bowl game.
Scott had eight catches for 114 yards and perhaps the biggest play of the game with the 65 yard touchdown on the first offensive play from scrimmage.
It will be hard saying goodbye to this senior class. They have accomplished so much and leave behind a great legacy. Clemson’s senior class ends its career with a school record 42 wins, nine against teams who were ranked in the top 25 in at least one of the major polls entering the game.
The Tigers have wins over seven of the top 15 winningest programs over the last four years. That list includes Ohio State, LSU, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida State and Louisville. These seniors have four straight 10-win seasons, a first for the program since Clemson had four straight 10-win seasons between 1987-90. Clemson joins Alabama, Northern Illinois and Oregon as the only schools with at least 10 wins each of the last four years.
This game was one for the record books. It is one we will always remember. But hopefully we will remember it as the springboard for bigger and better things to come. This time last year Jeff Scott and
