that game as first-year freshmen and now we will play in the
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl for a our final game. This is obviously the

"It is also great for Clemson and our football program. We
have been playing well and will have the opportunity to take on an
SEC power house. We hope to finish with one more win and be ranked
in the top 25 in the final poll. That should carry on to a preseason
top 25 for the program next year because we have so many players back

"The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is a great bowl for many reasons.
First, you are playing against a very good team, no matter who it is
from the SEC. Second, you get to play in the Georgia Dome and third
you are playing on ESPN when there aren't a lot of other bowl games
going on. It is a chance to finish our season strong and hopefully
get ranked in the final poll."
