Chandler Catanzaro kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired to give No. 14 Clemson a wild 25-24 win over No. 9 Louisiana State in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Monday night.
Trailing 24-22, Clemson (11-2) took possession on its 20 with 1:39 remaining. Tajh Boyd completed a pass for 26 yards to DeAndre Hopkins on a fourth-and-16 play during the decisive 10-play drive.
Clemson Tiger wide receiver Sammy Watkins that is Clemson’s most dynamic player was forced to be carted off the field by a hit by an LSU Tiger. Watkins was obviously emotional over the event and had a towel over his head while be carted off the field. Who can blame the kid? The guy has heart. Tajh Boyd has been getting abused by LSU’s defense and Barkevious Mingo especially.
