"It's just the way the marbles fall,"
said the All-Atlantic Coast Conference
lineman, whose team moved from the
No. 2 spot into the top ranking in The
Associated Press poll despite not playing
"The No. 1 is there, and all we've got N
to do is go out and prove that we deserve
it," he said.

- Bryant said he didn't think the pressure
of going into trie Orange Bowl as the No.
1 team against a traditional powerhouse
like Nebraska would bother Clemson.
"We're just going to take it like
another game," he said. "You can't
really let that bother you too much."
