CHARLOTTE, NC – Kelly Bryant laughed at the worry that Clemson's national championship icon Deshaun Watson could not happen this year.
How do you see the ACC Championship MVP now? ?
Bryant ran for a touchdown, threw for another and pbaded for 252 yards to help the top-ranked Tigers (12-1, CFP No. 1) to claim their possible place at the top of the University of Playoff Soccer poll with a 38-3 win over Miami No. 7 on Saturday night.
Bryant, the smiling, lanky 6-foot-3 young man, has gotten rid of the w's defenders and he has brushed aside concerns that he would not match Watson's success. But Bryant shows up week after week, he's more than ready for the challenge.
Bryant proved it once again against the Hurricanes (10-2, No. 7 CFP). He set a record in the championship game by completing his first 15 pbades, beating the mark his teammate had, and making the Tigers have a 14-0 lead in their 11-yard TD in the first quarter. .
"We had a lot of questions about the guys who left," Bryant said. "Having the guys around me who have believed in me has helped, and as coach Dabo says, I just know the best version of Kelly BI."
The best of Bryant certainly points to another title race for the defending champions.
Oh, no, Tigers coach Dabo Swinney corrects: "We are the attacking champions, we are attacking to try to win another."
Swinney said in the middle of the post-match celebration that he had not been to New Orleans since he left with Alabama in 1992, the then receiver of that national champion team. This time, the Tigers as first seed have their selection of sites and Swinney left no room for what he chooses.
"Get ready, Sugar Bowl," he shouted. "Here we come".
Bryant culminated his game with a 27-yard touchdown pbad to Deon Cain en route to Clemson's third straight ACC crown.
"He's alone in our DNA, we're made for moments like this," said Bryant, named MVP of the game.
Clemson's defense made things stand out against a team of Hurricanes that has been driven to its changing season by its dazzling "Sales Volume Chain" jewelery cover. Player of Miami with a loose ball or a loose ball.
Instead, it was the Tigers who won the turnover battle (3 to 1) and kept Miami at its fewest points and yards of the season to ruin the first appearance of the Hurricanes in the contest since He joined the league in 2004.
Bryant and catcher Ray-Ray McCloud even made fun of the Miami collar, McCloud pantomimed putting an invisible chain around Bryant's neck after the quarterback TD.
Clemson's Travis Etienne opened the scoring with a 4-yard touchdown before Bryant's twisting, 11-yard run for a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Basically it was over after the Hurricanes (10-2, No. 7 CFP) lost two games in a row after climbing to No. 2 in the CFP two weeks ago.
"Obviously, it did not go well," Miami coach Mark Richt said. "It just shows that they are the clbad of our league and they are the measuring stick."
Miami came down in the third quarter with a pair of Malik Rosier interceptions that led to 10 points for the Tigers. The Hurricanes, who averaged 440 yards per game this season, finished with 214 yards. He broke the shutout on Michael Badgley's 29-yard field goal with 3:29 to play.
Miami: The Hurricanes showed that they still have something to do to catch up with the ACC's elite program. Miami allowed the first opportunities to escape, a long pbad to an open receiver overthrown by Rosier, a clearance cleared in Clemson's territory, and paid when the relentless Tigers offense and the dominant defense took control. "They came out and, from the start, they jumped us," said Miami receiver Braxton Berrios.
Clemson: The Tigers have been methodically tested at all times this year when skeptics were sure they would hesitate with so many (11). new starters) new faces after the national championship last year. Once again, Clemson answered the questions and will head to his third American Football Playoff, probably the No. 1 and favorite to win a second consecutive crown.
Clemson joined Florida State as the only teams to win three consecutive ACC championships. The Seminoles ran between 2012 and 2014, just before the Tigers started their current streak. Clemson's triumph also made seven straight for the Atlantic Division teams over Costa's opponents.
The Tigers established an ACC Championship record with four different players scoring touchdowns on the ground. Along with Etienne and Bryant TDs, Clemson's Adam Choice had a 1-yard scoring run and Tavien Feaster had an 11-yard touchdown run.
The title game returned to Charlotte after a year in Orlando, Florida, due to the ACC's ban on awarding championships to North Carolina by a law that limits protections for LGBT people. The law was repealed earlier this year, the ban was lifted and the contest was restored to the Bank of America Stadium.
Miami will probably head to the Orange Bowl in the usual ACC location.
Clemson should maintain first place in the CFP ranking and, with the option of choosing the location, he will undoubtedly choose the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans over the Rose Bowl to ensure he has a large crowd in the stands. national semifinals. Your opponent will be announced on Sunday.
