The players and playmakers that led Clemson to the National Championship.

With Clemson nursing a 13-10 lead into the 4th quarter and their regular season and home winning streaks on the line, the Tigers faced a 3rd and goal from the Troy 1, when Tony Elliott dialed up the Jumbo Package with a twist.  Instead of Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence blocking for Wayne Gallman, a play fake to Gallman led to an easy touchdown pass to Wilkins, who recorded his second reception as a Tiger.  Clemson pushes the lead to 20-10 with 13:50 to play.
