Steve Spurrier trolls rival Clemson during his Capital One Bowl postgame speech

Steve Spurrier rarely misses an opportunity to take a jab at in-state rival Clemson, so when he grabbed the mic following the Gamecocks 34-24 win against Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl, his victory speech was, of course, pointed at the Tigers.

“These two Capital One Bowls in a row are pretty nice,” Spurrier said. “But that state championship ain't bad either.”

South Carolina defeated Clemson 31-17 on Nov. 30, but I’d say Clemson still got the last laugh. Despite the loss, the Tigers are still playing in the Orange Bowl against Ohio State on Friday.

Thanks to College Spun for the video.
