The LSU Tigers look to end their season with a victory when they take on the Clemson Tigers in the 2012 Chick-fil-A Bowl on New Years Eve. Both teams finished 10-2 on the season and finished on the outside of the BCS picture looking in.

The bowl game is one of the more interesting left on the schedule this season, as it features one of the top offenses in the country in Clemson against one of the best defenses in the country at LSU.

Clemson has set school records this season in total points scored and total yards, and is one of the most prolific passing teams in the country. Junior quarterback Tajh Boyd posted a 168.5 passer rating this season, throwing for 3,550 yards and 34 touchdowns this season.

LSU is playing in a comfortable environment, as the team owns a 9-1 record at the Georgia Dome, including a 5-0 record in the Chick-Fil-A bowl.
