West Virginia 70, Clemson 33

Individual Notes: When Sammy Watkins caught a 27-yard touchdown pass from Tajh Boyd in the first quarter tonight, Watkins broke two school records. It was his 12th touchdown catch of the year, breaking the record of 11 previously held by himself and Aaron Kelly in 2007. It was also his 13th overall touchdown of the year, breaking the previous Clemson record for a freshman. C.J. Spiller had 12 as a freshman in 2006. Spiller is in the house tonight watching from the Clemson sidelines.

Team Notes: Clemson established a school record for touchdowns in a season tonight. The record setter came on Watkins 27 yard touchdown catch from Tajh Boyd. That was Clemson's 56th touchdown of the season. The previous record was 55 touchdowns in 2000 and 2006.

Clemson scored 17 points in the first quarter tonight, the most points Clemson has scored in the first quarter of a bowl game. The previous high was 14 by the Tigers against Missouri in the 1949 Gator Bowl.
