Clemson plays LSU for this years Chik Fil A Bowl.
Clemson started the season in the Georgia Dome playing the Auburn Tigers and will finish the year playing LSU Tigers in the Dome New Years Eve in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
It's a big stage and big opportunity for Clemson to finish the year strong against an SEC opponent.
LSU was expected to land in the Cotton Bowl, but that was under the assumption that the Capital One Bowl would choose Texas A&M, then the Cotton Bowl would avoid a matchup between Texas A&M and Texas if both teams were available.
When MAC Champion Northern Illinois finished in the Top 16 in the BCS standings, Oklahoma was bumped out of a BCS game, sending Northern Illinois to the Orange Bowl to take on ACC Champ Florida State.
With Oklahoma now available for the Cotton Bowl, officials didn't have to worry about a matchup between the Longhorns and Aggies, instead settling, potentially, on a game between Texas A&M and Oklahoma.
The Cotton Bowl's decision to pick up Texas A&M bumped LSU down to the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, where the Tigers will face an ACC team.
