Baton Rouge in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
December 28, 1996
— LSU 10, Clemson 7 —
Quarterback Herb Tyler led a balanced LSU attack against a stubborn Clemson squad to send the LSU Tigers to a 10-7 win in the Peach Bowl at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The win gave the Tigers their second straight bowl victory and their first 10-win season in nine years. Clemson struck first, taking a 7-0 lead when quarterback Nealon Greene took the ball in from five yards out after LSU had turned the ball over deep in Clemson territory. But it would be Clemson's only points of the night. In the second quarter, Kevin Faulk capped a seven-play, 80-yard LSU drive with a 3-yard touchdown run and Wade Richey added a 22-yard field goal before intermission for a 10-7 LSU lead at the half that would stand as the final margin. The game was sealed when LSU's Aaron Adams batted away a 52-yard Clemson field goal try with less than two minutes to play.
Erected by LSU, Russ, Laura, James & Elise Saloom.
