LSU and Clemson will square off in the 2012 Chik-fil-A Bowl, marking the third time in the history that the two program’s have met on the gridiron.
The first time the Tigers took the field together was over a half a century ago in the 1959 Sugar Bowl. LSU was looking to cap off a perfect 11-0 season and national championship run with a win over Clemson.
LSU would prevail with a 7-0 win, further cementing their place atop the college football landscape.
