By now the entire college football world has seen the thunderous hit laid on Michigan's Vincent Smith by South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney. That hit late in the fourth quarter forced a fumble and spurred the Gamecocks on to a last-second victory over the Wolverines in the 2013 Outback Bowl.
But that wasn't the only great hit of the 2012 season.
College football is a contact sport, and we thought we'd honor those players who go out and lay the lumber on the opposition. There aren't many hits as good as Clowney's, but there were a lot of great decleaters this season.
Note: We have purposefully decided not to honor any hit that deservedly drew a personal foul penalty.
