COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- No. 15 Clemson is heading back to the
Chick-fil-A Bowl, accepting an invite Sunday to the New Year's Eve
game in Atlanta.
The Tigers (9-3) will face Auburn of the Southeastern Conference
in a rematch from 11 seasons ago. Auburn took that one, 10-3.
Clemson's last appearance at the Georgia Dome came after the
2003 season when it defeated No. 6 Tennessee, 27-14.
The Tigers have won five of their final six games, closing the
regular season with a 23-21 victory over instate rival South
Chick-Fil-A Bowl chairman Chuck Fruit says Clemson brings a
strong fan base with them in postseason play and expects the same
for this year's game.
