Discover Orange Bowl
The West Virginia Mountaineers rode a record-breaking offensive performance by quarterback Geno Smith, who grew up in the shadow of Sun Life Stadium, to defeat the Clemson Tigers 70-33 in the 2012 Discover Orange Bowl. The Mountaineers’ 70 points set an all-time bowl record while Smith’s six touchdown passes and Tavon Austin’s four touchdown receptions both set Orange Bowl records and tied all-time bowl records. Despite the offensive fireworks, the game turned on a defensive play when with Clemson only a yard away from a game-leading touchdown, Darwin Cook recovered a fumble and took it 99 yards for a touchdown to extend West Virginia’s second quarter lead to 28-17. In total, nine different bowl records were either broken or tied in the 78th edition of the game.
