|Clemson Beats Kentucky in Music City Bowl
|NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- C.J. Spiller scored a touchdown and had 172 all-purpose yards in his final college game, leading Clemson to a 21-13 victory Sunday night in the Music City Bowl.
The Tigers (9-5) hadn't won a bowl since the 2005 Champs Sports Bowl.
Kentucky (7-6) was trying to make program history by winning a fourth straight bowl game. The Wildcats certainly had the home-field advantage with blue filling nearly two-thirds of the lower bowl at LP Field.
Spiller, the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year, scored his 51st career touchdown, a Clemson record, on an 8-yard run with 10:14 left in the fourth quarter to make it 21-13.
Kyle Parker had a touchdown pass the Tigers and Jamie Harper ran for a score.
