Two former Wake Forest players took part in the divisional rounds of the NFL playoffs this weekend and will meet in the NFC Championship on Sunday at 3 p.m. Following Sunday's matchup in the conference title game, one of the two former Demon Deacons will represent Wake Forest at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on Feb. 3.
Tyson Clabo - Falcons
Quarterback Matt Ryan engineered a drive in the final seconds as Bryant kicked the go-ahead field goal with eight seconds left to win the game. Behind Clabo and the rest of the offensive line, Ryan was not sacked during the game and completed 24-of-35 passes for 250 yards. Atlanta also gained 167 rushing yards in the win.
Joe Looney - 49ers
San Francisco scored three-straight touchdowns in the second half which included a 56-yard touchdown run by Kaepernick. Green Bay scored a touchdown in the final minute, but the 49ers advanced to the NFC Championship game to face the Falcons. Looney is second on the depth chart at left guard behind Mike Iupati.
