#5 2001 Clemson 47 Georgia Tech 44
2001 was an unusual year in that the September 11th tragedies cancelled the Duke game, and the Tigers were upset during the following week in a controversial home game against Virginia. Consequently, the Tigers fell from the top 25 before heading to Atlanta to face the 9th ranked Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. In a game marked by incredible momentum swings, J.J. McKelvey answered the prayers of the Tiger faithful by catching a 63-yard touchdown pass on 4th-and-13 give the Tigers a late 4th quarter lead.

Georgia Tech would answer with a quick field goal to send the game to overtime.

Bizarre, admittedly, is a difficult term to accurately define in the sports world. Webster defines bizarre as “Strikingly unconventional and far-fetched in style or appearance.” Bizarre is certainly a relative term; what is bizarre to you may not be so bizarre to me.
