No. 12 Clemson seeking Orange Bowl redemption

Posted: Updated:
CLEMSON, SC (AP) -

It's been nearly two years and 21 victories and the Clemson Tigers can't wipe away the memories of the drubbing they took the last time they played in the Orange Bowl.

Left tackle Brandon Thomas says the Tigers' 70-33 loss to West Virginia stings to this day, no matter how many accomplishments the team has piled up since. Thomas and the No. 12 Tigers (10-2) believe they're ready to make amends this time around against No. 7 Ohio State (12-1) when the teams meet Jan. 3.

Clemson has some history at making up for disappointing defeats. In each of the previous two years, the Tigers have rebounded from losses to rival South Carolina to close the regular season with postseason victories.

Thomas says they'll call on that resolve once more.
