Maccagnan was hired Jan. 13, 2015, and Bowles, in his third season, is the 16th head coach in franchise history. New York was 10-6 under Bowles in 2015, but slipped to 5-11 in 2016.

On that night in the Big Easy, Alabama defense didn’t allow LSU to cross midfield until the closing minutes of a suffocating 21-0 victory. This defensive performance was nearly as impressive.
Clemson was held to 188 yards — 260 yards below its season average — and never reached the end zone. Bryant was sacked five times and the Tigers were held to 64 yards on the ground.
Alabama played it tough right to the end, denying Clemson on a fourth-down pass into the end zone with just over a minute remaining.
