Ohio State vs. Clemson - Orange Bowl Highlights

Joshua S. Kelly

The Orange Bowl was billed as a battle of big-time quarterbacks, pitting Braxton Miller vs. Tajh Boyd. It certainly lived up to its billing as a shootout, as Clemson won a wild 40-35 contest that featured four lead changes and 1,003 combined yards. Miller finished with 269 total yards; Boyd had 497 in one of the best games of the postseason.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Iowa vs. LSU - Outback Bowl Highlights

Yes, Iowa lost, 21-14. But it’s no shame in falling to an uber-talented LSU team, which took the opening kickoff and went 79 yards on 12 plays—all runs—in taking a 7-0 lead en route to a 14-0 halftime edge. That set the tone in a game that was more lopsided than the final score indicated.
