Earlier this month, the Clemson Tigers shocked the college football world by dominating Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide in the national title game. After Alabama opened a 16-14 lead, Clemson scored the game's final 30 points en route to a 44-16 blowout win.

A month later, several Clemson football players had a hand in yet another blowout - this time on the hardwood. Several Clemson football players formed an intramural basketball team and proceeded to destroy their opponent earlier this week.

A video of wide receiver Tee Higgins nearly throwing down a dunk hit the social media airwaves and quickly went viral. Higgins jumped over his opponent, but missed on the dunk of what would have been an incredible highlight.

Check it out.

Higgins is a former four-star basketball recruit in addition to being the No. 2 wide receiver recruit from the 2017 class. Speaking of highly-rated recruits, freshman phenom Justyn Ross is also on the intramural basketball team - he was the No. 7 wide receiver recruit from the 2018 class.

The Tigers reportedly won the intramural game by a final score of 74-14, which shouldn't come as a surprise knowing how athletic the football program is.

We're not sure any other team playing at the intramural level has a chance.
