The Clemson Tigers are used to playing in New Years Day and CFP bowl games, so Wednesday’s Cheez-It Bowl win might not have engendered quite as much excitement as recent games. And yet, it brought a certain joy to college football fans everywhere.
Clemson beat the Iowa State Cyclones 20-13 and it marked head coach Dabo Swinney’s 150th career win. The bowl win was celebrated with a dumping of the Gatorade tub on Swinney. Only, this time it was not Gatorade that was dumped on Swinney. It was a whole bunch of Cheez-Its!
We’re writing this on the morning of Thursday, December 30, and frankly, this could be the biggest day in Gatorade dumpings. The Duke’s Mayo Bowl kicks off at 11:30 a.m. and features North Carolina vs. South Carolina. Both head coaches were asked about getting a mayo bath and were willing to undergo it if it meant they won the game.
It’s unclear if we’ll actually see a mayo bath. The bowl game Twitter account has teased it in the past and nothing’s come of it, so we shouldn’t get too optimistic. But maybe, just maybe....
