Peach Bowl opponent is up in the air

Who will the Tigers play? It looks like Clemson won't be facing Florida in the Peach Bowl on Jan. 2. The Gators accepted a bid to the Outback Bowl, which carries a bigger payout. Tennessee is being mentioned as a potential opponent, though the Vols could be playing in a BCS bowl because of their No. 7 national ranking. (More here.)

Everything will be sorted out after Saturday's SEC championship game between LSU and Georgia.

LOOKING BACK: Here's a story about Walter Merritt Riggs, the man who brought football to Clemson in 1896. (Riggs Field, where the soccer teams play, is named for him. It was the home of Clemson football in the early days.) It's an interesting read.
