Auburn's rookie signal-caller Kodi Burns made the most of limited touches in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, throwing for one touchdown and running for another—the game-winner in overtime—to deny Clemson its first 10-win season since 1990. "He'll go in as No. 1," said coach Tommy Tuberville of Burns, referring to next year. "He's earned that. He's a gamer." In other late bowl action:
- Zac Robinson threw three scores and ran for two more in Oklahoma State's 49-33 win over Indiana in the Insight Bowl. A sophomore making his 11th college start, Robinson completed 24 of 34 passes for 302 yards—and threw an interception.
