September 8th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Terrance Roulhac

Terrance Roulhac played for Clemson from 1983 until 1986 as a wide receiver. Roulhac was a product of Jacksonville, Florida. Roulhac was one of three Tigers plucked from the Jacksonville area within a three year span. Terrance Flagler and Kenny Flowers were also big recruits from the Jacksonville area that became an integral part of Clemson’s program.

Roulhac had 92 receptions in his career for 1,487 yards and 16 touchdowns. His yard per catch over that period of time was 16.2. Roulhac also had 42 kick returns in his career for a 26.4 yard average.

Roulhac was a part of one of the most dramatic endings in Clemson football history when Clemson traveled between the hedges in 1984 to face the Georgia Bulldogs. Clemson was cruising, up 20-6 at halftime on two Mike Eppley touchdown passes and helped by three interceptions from the defense. Georgia was able to crawl back into the game, tying it at 20 on a one-yard Cleveland Gary touchdown run. The Dawgs took the lead on Kevin Butler's third field goal of the game coming with six minutes to play, but Clemson responded with a 48-yard Donald Igwebuike field goal with 2:10 to go.

Georgia had a final shot to pull off the win when RB Troy Jackson ran for a 24-yard gain, but the drive stalled on the Clemson 45. Facing 4th and nine with :19 to play, Georgia head coach Vince Dooley chose to send out Butler to attempt a college football record-tying 60-yard field goal. Even with the wind slightly in his face, Butler blasted it through for the 26-23 lead with :11 to play. The Georgia sideline erupted and got nailed for an unsportsmalike conduct penalty.

Clemson's Ray Williams fielded the ensuing Butler kickoff and threw it across the field to Terrance Roulhac who took off across midfield. He got down to the Georgia 35 before going out of bounds with what appeared to be one second remaining. The clock read 0:00 leading to a conference on the field with the officials and coaches. The determination was that the clock had expired, ending the game.

Clemson fans in the stadium to this day will tell you that Roulhac went out of bounds before the clock expired and the Tigers should have been afforded the opportunity to kick a tying field goal. Instead, Butler goes down in history and the game is still regarded one of the best in the history of the rivalry.
