ATLANTA (AP) -- LSU will face Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Officials announced their selection of No. 9 LSU (10-2) on Sunday night after a day of frenzied speculation about how the Southeastern Conference bowl hierarchy would shake out. No. 14 Clemson (10-2) was a lock to be the Atlantic Coast Conference representative in the Dec. 31 game after Florida State won the league championship. LSU has won its five previous appearances in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, most recently a 38-3 rout over Georgia Tech in 2008. Coach Les Miles' team will be trying to lock up the seventh 11-win season in school history. Clemson is set to play in the Atlanta game for the eighth time, having lost to LSU 10-7 in 1996 when it was known as the Peach Bowl.
