Clemson's Tigers will be looking to work up an appetite as they work their way through their third Georgia Dome practice on Friday in preparation for their Chick-fil-A Bowl game against LSU.

The Tigers will practice from noon to 2:15 p.m., and then will gear themselves up for a 'protein eating' contest at an Atlanta steak house.

For the Tigers, the day will kick off with an 11 a.m. press conference at the Sheraton Atlanta, attended by head coach Dabo Swinney and seniors Dalton Freeman and Malliciah Goodman.

Following the team's third Georgia Dome practice, the Tigers will settle in at Sal Grosso Brazilian Steakhouse, where they will partake of a 'traditional Brazilian steakhouse dinner' while attempting to out-eat their LSU bowl rivals.

The dinner will serve as the third leg in the 'Battle for Bowl Week' competition, following up on Wednesday's free throw shooting contest and Thursday's timed laps at Andretti Karts, an indoor 'super kart' speedway.

The team that consumes the highest amount of protein per-player will receive one 'Battle for Bowl Week' point.

Clemson's eat-athon will begin at 5 p.m. and end at 6:30 p.m. The LSU team will arrive an hour later, and will dine from 7:30-9 p.m.
