December 23rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

A “Major” Whipping

(Photo Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today's photo is from the 1989 Gator Bowl and shows Clemson linebacker Levon Kirkland (#44 in the photo) sacking West Virginia QB Major Harris.

Kirkland was named the game’s MVP and the sensational Mountaineer QB was sacked 4 times and kept to only 237-yards of total offense. Clemson won the game 27-7, but the score did not reflect how dominate the Tigers were in this game.

It was also the final time Danny Ford coached Clemson, as his termination from Clemson would take place only 3 weeks later.
