Bowl week officially kicked off today in The Palmetto State as Kevin McCrarey was in Charlotte covering Clemson and the Meineke Car Care Bowl. Phil Kornblut did his part by heading west to Atlanta to keep us up-to-date on USC and the Chick-Fil-A Bowl. We’ve got recruiting and your calls as well and the Tigers return to the hard court tonight against Delaware State at home.
- Clemson braved the elements today as the fields they are using for bowl game practices had to be snow-plowed this morning for their use. Dabo Swinney was thankful for those who made this practice possible.
- Clemson quarterback Kyle Parker is playing in his final game with the Tigers and his final game at the university. He talked about the game and his time at Clemson.
- USC practiced inside today borrowing the Atlanta Falcons training facility in Flowery Branch. The Georgia Dome is occupied today with Monday Night Football so the Gamecocks and ‘Noles had to make other arrangements. Here is some audio from post-practice starting with Lorenzo Ward.
- USC Safety DeVonte Holloman has regained his starting position and will play ahead of D.J. Swearinger in the bowl game. Phil Kornblut sat down with him today to talk about bowl preparations for the defense.
- All-World Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers spoke with the media following practice and says he is having a lot of fun as the Tigers prepare for the bowl game.
- Recruiting rolls on tonight.
