1982 Orange Bowl National Championship Game Available For Purchase

Jan. 20, 2003

CollegeSports.com Classics (www.collegesports.com/store/classics/), the online store for the Official College Sports Network (OCSN), has announced the availability of one of college football’s greatest games, the classic 1982 Orange Bowl — Clemson’s 22-15 victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Considered by many as Clemson’s greatest moment in sports history, the 48th Annual Orange Bowl Classic will always be remembered as the venue where the Tigers celebrated its first-ever national championship. The Tigers (www.clemsontigers.com) fought off the tradition rich Big 8 Champion Nebraska Cornhuskers with its opportunistic defense and multiple threat offense. Clemson’s defense, led by All-American safety Terry Kinard and freshman lineman William Perry, neutralized the high-powered Cornhusker offense of running backs Roger Craig and Mike Rozier to only 15 points. The Tigers scored 19 unanswered points including a fourth quarter Homer Jordan to Perry Tuttle touchdown pass, and Donald Igwebuike’s third field goal of the game to earn the 22-15 victory and put up its third undefeated season in school history.

“We are very excited about offering such a legendary game to the Clemson fans and college football fans in general. Clemson has a long tradition of great athletics and a fervent fan base,” said OCSN president Jeff Cravens. “Through our CollegeSports.com Web site, college sports fans can now-for the first time-purchase officially licensed, high-quality, complete broadcasts of classic games. The 1982 Orange Bowl game is a must for the avid sports enthusiast’s video library.”

This classic game is represented by Collegiate Images, the Fort Lauderdale-based company that manages school, conference and bowl games in the distribution of archived video and film content and programming. Additional games are available through CollegeSports.com Classics, in VHS format, for $24.99 per tape.
