ATLANTA, GA.  From: FOXSports (By: Tom Pace, Executive Editor, Talk of the Town) BREAKING: TIGERS SPOIL LSU CHICK-FIL-A BOWL HOPES: CLEMSON UPENDS BAYOU BENGALS 25-24 ON FINAL PLAY 12-31-12 The "Mad Hatter" Les Miles has to be really mad tonight. That's because Chandler Catanzaro kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired to give No. 14 Clemson a wild 25-24 win over No. 9 Louisiana State in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Monday night.

Trailing 24-22, Clemson (11-2) took possession on its 20 with 1:39 remaining. Tajh Boyd completed a pass for 26 yards to DeAndre Hopkins on a fourth-and-16 play during the decisive 10-play drive, FOX Sports reported.

Catanzaro's kick set off a wild celebration on the field and in the stands. Some players collapsed on the field in apparent disbelief while most of Clemson's orange jerseys met in a midfield circle.

Hopkins, who had 13 catches for 191 yards and two touchdowns, also had receptions for 7 and 13 yards in the final drive. LSU safety Greg Reid was flagged for pass interference while defending Hopkins.
