Clemson offensive lineman Shaq Anthony listens to head coach Dabo Swinney during practice August 9.

Two reserve members of the Clemson football team - offensive lineman Shaq Anthony and quarterback Tony McNeal - are academically ineligible to play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl against LSU and did not accompany the Tigers to Atlanta. Dabo Swinney made the announcement after practice on Wednesday.

Anthony played sparingly this season, while McNeal has been sidelined since the Orange-White spring game in April with an ACL injury.
