BUFFALO — Bills coach Rex Ryan was thrilled about Clemson’s 37-17 win over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on Thursday. His son Seth is a reserve wide receiver for the Tigers who also holds for kicks.

“If you would’ve saw me this morning, I was decked out in all orange, just like I was yesterday when I left the building,” said Ryan, whose Bills face the Jets on Sunday.

“Very excited. It is kind of cool having my son . . . I don’t care how little he plays. Just the fact he’s out there playing for the national championship is pretty awesome.”

Ryan offered no prediction on Clemson’s meeting with Alabama in the upcoming college football championship game.

“Oh, I’m not going to predict that, trust me,” he said. “I’ll predict the other way, it’ll work out better for us . . . I was so excited about the game, and then I watched Alabama play and I was like ohhh. Alabama looked pretty good.”
