Boyd, 2011 Tigers pull off stunning upset

A tournament isn’t really any good unless there is an upset or two along the way. That’s why the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament was coined “March Madness.” It’s known for its stunning upsets and Cinderella stories.

Clemson fans picked an upset Sunday in the second round of Clemson Football’s March Madness Tournament on TCI.

In the East Region Sunday evening, the fans voted the 2011 Tigers, the No. 6 seed, past the 1939 team, which was the No. 3 seed. The 2011 Tigers rallied in the last hour to knock off the 1939 squad with 51 percent of the vote.
