SEC: LSU rolls dice, blows Chick-fil-A Bowl

SEC links for Tuesday:

  • Les Miles got burned in LSU’s 25-24 Chic-fil-A Bowl loss last night to Clemson. The Tigers opted to try and throw the ball rather than take time off the clock late, allowing Clemson to keep all three of its timeouts, and the ACC team not only got the ball back, but drove for the winning score. Blame this loss on the offense, wrote The Advocate’s Scott Rabalais.
  • It was a stunning loss for the LSU Tigers, writes Jim Kleinpeter of the Times-Picayune.
  • It was a great matchup and a great game, argues Glenn Guilbeau of the Shreveport Times.
  • Mark Bradley of the AJC writes that it was a landmark win for the Clemson Tigers.
  • Vanderbilt rolled over North Carolina State 38-24 in the Music City Bowl, and David Climer of the Tennessean writes that the Commodores have been transformed by James Franklin’s demand for excellence. Vanderbilt won nine football games this season.
