That was not a clown hit, bro.

South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney was not clowning around when he delivered the hit of 2013 on New Year's Day. Clowney, a 6-5, 256-pound sophomore defensive end considered by some to be the top player at his position in the country, steamrolled Michigan's Vinson Smith and scooped up the forced fumble with one hand in the fourth quarter of the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla. The hit came after the officials blew the spot on the preceding fourth-down play, erroneously giving Michigan an extra set of downs.

Clowney decided to correct the mistake himself.

South Carolina went on to win the game 33-28 after QB Dylan Thompson came off the bench and eventually threw a 32-yard touchdown pass with 11 seconds remaining.

Meanwhile, Smith isn't sure what year it is.
