Orange crush! West Virginia dominates Clemson in the Orange Bowl, 70-33

I wasn't surprised that the game had a total of 103 points, but I was shocked at how the Mountaineers scored 49 first half points and really gave the Tigers no time to get their act together on defense. Geno Smith passed for 6 TDs, which set an Orange Bowl record. The combined 103 points was the highest ever in a BCS game too, but the game was truly decided when West Virginia stripped the ball at the one yard line and returned it 99 yards for a 13 point lead and a 14 point swing. Clemson would never recover and the Big East tri-champs would walk away with the Oranges.
