Clemson Tigers head football coach Dabo Swinney celebrated his team's 25-24 come-from-behind victory in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve by picking up ESPN reporter Jeannine Edwards and giving her a big hug.
Swinney was clearly excited after Clemson won the game by kicking a field goal as time expired, and Edwards had positioned herself behind Swinney for a postgame interview as he exchanged postgame pleasantries with LSU coach Les Miles. Edwards couldn't help but laugh from being caught by surprise when Swinney turned around and lifted her up in the air while hugging her.
Edwards admitted it was the first time she ever had a head coach pick her up in the air and hug her like that. As we certainly don't see this happen every day, Edwards shouldn't have to worry about this happening again anytime soon.

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.

The Peach Bowl began as a Lions Club fundraiser in 1968, but its massive sponsorship deal with Chick-fil-A and tie-ins with the ACC and SEC have turned it into one of the marquee non-BCS bowls in the last decade. The bowl has the longest active sellout streak of non-BCS bowls, and third...
