Joe Girard reached another milestone during the game.

Girard has been a big addition to the roster this season. He now has 335 career three-point buckets. He trails Duke alum Trajan Langdon for fourth place with 342 career threes. The all-time leader is JJ Redick with 457, followed by Curtis Stapels from Virginia (413) and Dennis Scott from Georgia Tech (351).

Here is another fun clip of PJ Hall with a block against the Highlanders.

Clemson Football gets the strap

One of the perks of the Gator Bowl is that it is played in the same stadium where the Jacksonville Jaguars play their home games. The Jags are owned by the Khan family, who also happen to own All-Elite Wrestling.

Tony Khan presented the Tigers with a custom version of the AEW Championship belt following their victory over the Kentucky Wildcats.

I know professional wrestling isn’t for everyone, but I have always enjoyed it and I must say that is a very sweet game trophy. Next time I’m in Clemson I wouldn’t mind looking at it.

Barrett Carter understands.

He holds it like a champ.

Kicker Jonathan Weitz was clutch for the Tigers against South Carolina and Kentucky, and his story has become endearing to Clemson fans. Weitz was planning to start a job in New York before he decided to return to the Tigers for the season.

Weitz says the plan is still a move to NYC but circumstances have changed slightly.

The good news is that one can get around NYC by alternate methods. Good luck Weitz!
