THREE IOWA STATE CYCLONES TO WATCH

Will McDonald, DL: Will McDonald was a key part of the Cyclones’ defensive effort, leading the team in quarterback sacks with a school-best 11½, to go with 32 tackles, 14 for loss.

Charlie Kolar, TE: As the second leading receiver, Charlie Kolar made 58 catches for 723 yards and five touchdowns.

THREE CLEMSON TIGERS TO WATCH

DJ Uiagalelei, QB: The sophomore played injured during the latter stages of the regular season and finished with 2,059 passing yards and 296 rushing yards. Having nearly a month off to heal will be good for the quarterback, who has made positive progress in his growth over the season.

Mario Goodrich, BC: Before playing in the Reese’s Senior Bowl, Mario Goodrich will have one last game with the Tigers to finish a season where he had 47 tackles, seven breakups and one interception.

James Skalski, LB: With absolutely no eligibility left, the Cheez-It Bowl will officially be James Skalski’s last career game for Clemson. He capped a six-year career with a team-high 97 tackles, 4½ for the loss and 2½ quarterback sacks during the regular season.
