Clemson Team Notes
*Clemson held Wake Forest to 119 yards of total offense and moved to #1 in the
nation in that category heading into Saturday games. The Tigers are allowing just
252 yards per game.
*Clemson allowed just seven yards rushing, the second time this year Clemson has
done that. The Tigers also allowed just seven yards rushing against South Carolina
State. This marked the fifth time this year Clemson has allowed less than 100 yards
rushing in a game.
*Clemson’s senior class now has 39 wins, tied for second best in Clemson history.
They can tie the record with a win at Georgia Tech on November 15. The 1991
seniors also had 39. The 1990 seniors had a record of 40-8.
*Tonight was Clemson’s 25th straight win over an unranked opponent.
*This was the fourth time and second game in a row Clemson has allowed the
opposition to gain less than 200 yards total offense. The Tigers have given up just
289 yards of total offense the last two games combined. Syracuse gained just 170
last week and Wake Forest had 119 this evening.
*Clemson has now won six straight games, all in ACC play. This is the second time
in the last three years Clemson has had a six game ACC winning streak. The Tigers
won their last seven league games in 2012. Clemson will have a chance to duplicate
that feat at Georgia Tech on November 15.
*Clemson’s defense had five sacks and 13 tackles for loss. Clemson now has 91
tackles for loss for the year, a national best 10 per game. Clemson led the nation
in that category last year.
*Wake Forest was 0-10 on third down conversions over the last three periods.
*Dabo Swinney tied the ACC record for wins by a league coach in his first seven
years in the league. He now has a 58-25 record. Jerry Claiborne of Maryland also
had 58 wins through seven years (58-23-2).

*Shaq Lawson had a career high four tackles for loss this evening. He had just
four all year coming into this game.
*Garry Peters had a career high three passes broken up and now has a team best nine
for the year.
*Cole Stoudt threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns. It was his first game with
three touchdown passes since the South Carolina State game in 2013. He had just two
touchdown passes this year coming into tonight, then had three in this game.

5.6 yards per rush. He 28-101 against Syracuse and 19-106 tonight.
