COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney says he's healthy as he's been all season and is ready to end his career strongly at the Capital One Bowl.
The eighth-ranked Gamecocks (10-2) face No. 19 Wisconsin (9-3) on New Year's Day. And a Clowney not slowed by bumps and bruises is a big plus for South Carolina.
The 6-foot-6, 274-pound junior has dealt with bone spurs in his foot and a strained muscle near his ribs this season, along with double and triple teams from opposing teams he's faced each game.
Clowney finished the season with three sacks, far fewer than projected after his helmet-popping last New Year's was the highlight of college football's last offseason.
Clowney has said the Badgers game will be his last in college.
