Clemson tops No. 8 Miami in OT

BY foxsports • October 25, 2009

Jacoby Ford called the final play, promising Clemson's coaches it would work.

Did it ever.

Kyle Parker threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Ford in overtime, giving Clemson a wild, wacky 40-37 win over No. 8 Miami on Saturday night — the biggest win during Dabo Swinney's tenure as coach, the Tigers' first victory in their last nine tries over ranked teams, and their first road win over a Top 10 foe in more than eight years.

"It was a play that we had never run before," Clemson offensive coordinator Billy Napier said.

It was a play Miami won't want to see again.
