since Dabo Swinney has been Clemson Head Coach. It is the most penalties called on
the Tigers since the 2005 NC State game when the Tigers also had nine. It is the
most penalty yards in a game for the Tigers since the 2004 Utah State game when the
Tigers also had nine.

recent game against Miami (FL).
