CLEMSON -- Tangerine Bowl officials confirmed Sunday afternoon that their bowl bid went to North Carolina State. Clemson must now wait on an At-Large bid.


One possiblity would have been to play against Fresno State in the Silicon Valley Classic on Dec. 31, in San Jose, CA, but Michigan St received that bid earlier Sunday afternoon.


The only other possibility is the Humanitarian Bowl on Dec. 31 in Boise, Idaho. Officials say they have narrowed their list for the at-large team to Ole Miss, UCLA and Clemson. They are to meet tonight to discuss the selection but will not commit to a time when the decision will be final.


Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden did not comment on the bowl situation saying he would wait until "the Tigers receive a bowl bid or find out their season is over."


Bowden is attempting to become the first coach in Clemson history to take the Tigers to a bowl game in each of his first three years as head coach. Danny Ford had a 26-9 record through his first three full seasons as Clemson head coach, but his 1980 Tigers had a 6-5 record and were not selected for a bowl game. Ken Hatfield was 24-10-1 in his first three years, but his third Tiger team was 5-6 and did not go to a bowl.
