CLEMSON FREQUENT VISITOR TO AP POLL With Clemson’s No. 2 finish in the final AP poll for 2015, the Tigers have appeared in the Associated Press Poll 75 times out of a possible 82 polls since the beginning of the 2011 season. That means Clemson has been in the AP poll 91.5 percent of the time since the start of 2011, tied for the fifth most frequent appearance over that time with Oregon. Alabama is first as the Crimson Tide have been in all 82 polls over that time, with an average ranking of 2.6. Clemson’s average ranking over the last five years when it appears is 10.8. Only Alabama, Oklahoma, Florida State and LSU have been in the poll more often than Clemson over the last five years. Clemson is eighth in terms of the number of top 10 appearances the last five years with 35 of 82 polls. Again Alabama leads the way with 80 top 10 rankings in the last 82 polls.

Clemson won its 700th game in history on November 21, 2015 with a 33-13 victory over Wake Forest. Clemson became the 23rd program in FBS history to win 700 games, the fifth to do it in 2015. Other schools who reached 700 victories last year include Florida, Arkansas, Pittsburgh and Washington. Clemson enters the 2016 season with 703 total wins, 20th in the history of FBS football. Clemson has made quite a run the last five years with 56 victories, an average of 11 per season. And the Tigers have done it against good programs. A check to the chart to the right shows that Clemson is 17-4 against the other progams ranked in the top 20 in the nation in total victories over the last five years. That includes a 4-1 record

against the Top 10 under Dabo Swinney over the last three years. Clemson has won a bowl game each of the last four years against a program ranked in the top 12 in history in total wins.

WINNING MARK VS. POWER TRIO

Thanks to a recent run of four straight wins under Dabo Swinney in the last three years, Clemson is now the only FBS school with a winning record against Notre Dame, Ohio State and Oklahoma. Clemson is 2-1 against Notre Dame after its 24-22 win in 2015. The Tigers are now 3-2 against Oklahoma, including bowl wins each of the last two years, and 2-0 vs. Ohio State, including a 40-35 win in the 2014 Orange Bowl. Given a minimum of two games played, Notre Dame has a losing record against just six FBS schools (Clemson, Florida State, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State and Oregon State). Oklahoma also has a losing mark against just six schools (BYU, Clemson, Miami, Northwestern, Notre Dame and Southern California). Ohio State has a losing mark against seven schools (Florida State, Alabama, Clemson, Florida, South Carolina, Stanford and Texas). Clemson is the only common denominator.

INDICATORS OF VICTORY UNDER SWINNEY

TIGERS EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS

• Clemson is 67-6 under Dabo Swinney when it wins the total offense statistic, including 52-3 the last five years. • Clemson is 42-4 under Swinney when Tigers win the turnover margin statistic, 6-0 in 2015. • Clemson is 27-2 in last 29 games when it has at least 300 passing yards. • Clemson is 28-1 when leading at the half the last three years and 61-7 overall under Swinney. • Clemson is 61-5, including 51-1 the last five years, when it has more first downs than the opposition. • Clemson is 33-1 under Swinney when rushing for at least 200 yards, and has won 29 in a row dating to 2010. • Clemson is 55-7 under Swinney, 40-5 the last five years, when it has more rushing yards than the opposition. • Clemson is 66-4 under Swinney, including 50-1, the last five years when leading heading into the fourth quarter. Clemson had won 32 straight games dating to 2010 when it had a lead at any point in the fourth quarter prior to the overtime loss at Florida State on Sept. 20, 2014. • Alabama ended a streak of 51 straight wins for Clemson when leading into the fourth quarter in the national title game. Clemson led 24-21 entering the last quarter of that game, then lost 45-40.

Clemson has at least matched its preseason ranking in the USA Today coaches poll each of the last five years. That is becoming more and more difficult to accomplish in light of some high preseason rankings in recent years. This year, the only way Clemson might do it is if the Tigers win the National Championship. Below is a chart of Clemson’s preseason and postseason ranking in each poll since 2011.

Clemson has finished each of the last five seasons in the top 25 of both polls. Clemson, Alabama, Oregon and Florida State are the only schools in the nation to finish in the top 25 of both polls every year since 2011. That includes a final ranking of 15th or higher each of the last four years when the Tigers have had a 46-8 record, the best four-year mark in Clemson history.

37 STRAIGHT OVER UNRANKED OPPONENTS One of the most incredible streaks for the Clemson football program the last five years has been its streak of 37 consecutive games without losing to an unranked opponent. Alabama is the only school with a longer streak of wins over unranked teams at 60. Clemson last lost to an unranked team on November 19, 2011 when the seventh ranked Tigers lost at NC State 37-13. Dabo Swinney has not lost at home to an unranked opponent since the first game he coached for the Tigers. That was on October 18, 2008. Georgia Tech won a battle of unranked teams 21-17. Since then Swinney and the Tigers have won 41 in a row at home over unranked teams.

CLEMSON’S FOOTBALL HERITAGE

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

• One-hundred and twenty-nine of the 135 senior lettermen (96 percent) in Dabo Swinney’s seven full years as head coach have graduated. The other six are either in school or playing in the NFL. • Clemson had 48 players named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll in the fall of 2015, the same semester Clemson had an undefeated record. It is the most players named to the honor roll for one semester in history. The team also set a fall semester record for the highest GPA. • Clemson is one of only three FBS programs ranked in the top-10 percent in APR scores each of the last six years, joining Duke and Northwestern. Clemson is the only FBS program to finish each of the last five seasons in the top 25 of both polls on the field, and in the top 10 percent of APR scores in the classroom. • Chad Carson and Kyle Young were first-team Academic All-Americans in 2000 and 2001. Clemson was the only Division I school in the nation with two first-team picks each year. Young was a first-team Academic AllAmerican from 1999-01 and became just the second ACC player in history to be a three-time, first-team selection. He is one of just two offensive linemen in college football history to be a three-time, first-team Academic All-American. He is currently an associate athletic director in the Clemson Athletic Department. • Dalton Freeman was an All-American on the field and off the field in 2012. He was a first-team All-America center according to AFCA and second-team Academic All-American by CoSIDA. • Vic Beasley was the eighth selection of the 2015 NFL draft. He was the only top 10 pick of that draft who had his degree on draft night. • Deshaun Watson passed 37 hours during the 201516 academic year and threw 35 touchdown passes. He is first quarterback on record to accomplish at least 35 of each in the same academic year.

ALL-STAR SELECTIONS • Clemson has a history of decorated football players. The program boasts 77 different players who have earned first, second or third-team All-America honors

in its history. The list includes six players who were named at the end of the 2015 season. The list included consensus first-team All-Americans Shaq Lawson and Deshaun Watson. • Vic Beasley was a two-time first-team All-American, and the first to be a first-round draft choice and graduate since Bennie Cunningham in 1975. • Sammy Watkins, who was the No. 4 overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft, was the first player in Clemson history to be named a first-team All-American by at least one service in three different seasons. • In 2015, Watson and Lawson were first-team AP AllAmericans. It marked the second time that had happened in five years. In 2011, Dwayne Allen and Sammy Watkins were both AP First-Team All-Americans. Prior to 2011, Clemson had never had two first-team selections by AP in the same year. • When Sammy Watkins was named a first-team AllAmerican as a true freshman in 2011, he joined Georgia’s Herschel Walker (1980), San Diego State’s

Marshall Faulk (1991) and Oklahoma’s Adrian Peterson (2004) as the only first-year freshmen non-kickers in history to earn AP First-Team All-America honors. • Clemson has had three players win five national position awards since 2010. Desahaun Watson won the Manning Award and the Davey O’Brien Award as the top quarterback in the nation in 2015. He also won the Archie Griffin Award as top player in the nation. Dwayne Allen won the John Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end in 2011 and Da’Quan Bowers won the Bronko Nagurski Award as the top defensive player in 2010. Bowers also won the Ted Hendricks Award in 2010. • Shaq Lawson was a finalist for the Hendricks Award, Lombardi Award and Nagurski Award in 2015. Vic Beasley was a finalist for three awards in 2014. • Clemson has had at least one All-American 36 of the last 39 years. In Dabo Swinney’s seven full seasons as head coach, he has had at least two All-Americans each year and 12 different players have made a first-

team All-America squad. Watkins and Beasley made it twice each. • Clemson has had at least one first-team All-ACC player each of the last 39 years, the longest active streak and the longest overall streak in ACC history. In 2015, Clemson had 17 different players named first, second or third team All-ACC. Nine of the 17 were first-team selections by either the coaches or the media. • Clemson had nine players named to the ACC’s 50Year Anniversary team, more than any other school. The list of honorees shows the balance of the program over the years, as every area of a football team (by position) was represented. The nine players are Joe Bostic, Jerry Butler, Bennie Cunningham, Jeff Davis, Steve Fuller, Terry Kinard, Michael Dean Perry, William Perry and Anthony Simmons. All nine players were All-Americans during at least one season at Clemson and played in the NFL. • Deshaun Watson was a finalist for the 2015 Heisman Trophy and finished in third place as a sophomore. He was Clemson’s first finalist, and the second Tiger under Dabo Swinney to finish in the top six. C.J. Spiller was sixth in 2009.

BOWL HISTORY • Clemson has won a bowl game each of the last four years against a program led by a coach who has won a national championship at some point in his career. Clemson is the only school in the country to win a bowl game each of the last four years, against a team ranked in the top 25 in at least one of the national polls. That includes 2015, when Clemson defeated third ranked Oklahoma in the Oange Bowl, 37-17. Clemson has defeated ranked teams from LSU, Ohio State and Oklahoma (twice) over the last four years. • Clemson is 6-1 in its history in bowl games against Nebraska, Ohio State and Oklahoma, three of the top six programs in college football history in terms of wins. The Tigers are the only program to beat Oklahoma in a bowl game twice, let alone three times (3-0). • Ten of Clemson’s 20 bowl wins have come against coaches who have won the National Championship at some point in their careers. That includes recent

wins over Les Miles (Louisiana State) in 2012, Urban Meyer (Ohio State) in 2013 and Bob Stoops (Oklahoma) in 2014 and 2015. • Clemson’s first bowl game was a 6-3 victory over Boston College and Head Coach Frank Leahy in the 1940 Cotton Bowl. Leahy is still second in college football history in winning percentage and won four National Championships at Notre Dame. • Clemson won five straight bowl games between the 1986 and 1990 seasons, tied for the 10th-longest winning streak in college football history in consecutive seasons. Clemson defeated Stanford, Penn State, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Illinois during its bowl winning streak. Clemson now has a streak of bowl wins in four straight seasons. • Clemson has defeated some of the top coaches in college football history in bowl competition. Among the list of celebrated head coaches who have lost to Clemson in bowl games since the ACC was founded are Joe Paterno (winningest coach in Division I history on a total-victories basis), Barry Switzer (No. 4-winningest Division I coach on a winning percentage basis) and Tom Osborne (No. 7-winningest Division I coach on a winning percentage basis). • Hall of Fame Head Coach Woody Hayes suffered his final defeat against the Tigers in the 1978 Gator Bowl. Overall, Clemson has defeated nine head coaches in bowl games who are enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame.

CHAMPIONSHIP TRADITION • The Tigers were named National Champions by every service in 1981, as they were the only school in the nation with a perfect record (12-0). It included three wins over top-10 teams (Georgia, Nebraska, North Carolina), the only team to beat three top-10 teams in 1981. It was just the second national title for an ACC school. • The 1981 team had five All-Americans on its roster, including first-team selections Jeff Davis, Terry Kinard and Perry Tuttle. Thirty-one players on the 1981 squad were eventually drafted by the NFL and 22 players eventually played in the NFL. Twenty-three different players on the 1981 roster were First-Team All-ACC selections at one time during their Clemson careers. • Since the ACC was formed in 1953, Clemson has

more overall wins (456) and ACC wins (269) than any other school as a member. • Clemson has won or been co-champions of the ACC Atlantic Division four of the last seven years (2009,11,12,15). • Clemson won the 2011 and 2015 ACC Championships under Dabo Swinney. The Tigers were 8-0 in the regular season, then won the ACC Championship over North Carolina for a ninth ACC win in 2015. • Clemson won the Southern Conference title in 1940 and 1948 along with the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1900, 1902, 1903 and 1906, giving the program 21 conference crowns, more than any other school in the ACC.

COACHING SUCCESS • Head Coach Dabo Swinney won 12 Coach of the Year honors in 2015, two ACC and 10 for National Coach of the Year. That included National Coach of the Year by the Associated Press, ESPN, Sporting News, Watler Camp Foundation, and the American Football Coaches Association. The former Alabama player also won the Bear Bryant Award. Swinney also won the Gene Stallings Award and the FCA Coach of the Year in 2014 and the Bobby Dodd Award in 2011. • Swinney already has 75 wins in seven full seasons as head coach. That includes 46 wins the last four years, the most in any four-year period in Clemson history. • Clemson has a legendary history when it comes to coaching. Three former Tiger mentors (John Heisman, Frank Howard, Jess Neely) are in the College Football Hall of Fame. Howard was Clemson’s coach when the ACC was founded and promptly took the Tigers to six ACC titles. No coach had more league championships than Howard during his 30-year tenure in Tigertown. He concluded his career with 165 victories, and his 30-year tenure is still third-longest in NCAA history for a head coach serving at one school. His victory total was extraordinary considering Clemson played just 38 percent of the games at home during Howard’s tenure. • Danny Ford coached Clemson to the 1981 national title and won six bowl games in his Tiger career, second on the all-time ACC coaching list. His 76-percent winning mark is second-best in ACC history. He was the consensus national coach-of-the-year in 1981, and he remains the youngest coach (33) to win a na-

tional title. He was inducted into the Clemson Ring of Honor in 2013 and is on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame class of 2017. • Tommy Bowden continued the tradition of outstanding Tiger coaches by leading the team to bowl games each of his first five years, the first coach in Clemson history to do that (Dabo Swinney has duplicated the accomplishment). He was named ACC Coach-of-theYear twice.

EXPOSURE • Clemson is one of the most-televised teams in the nation every year. Fourteen of the 15 games were on live television in 2015, including 13 that were shown on ABC or on the ESPN family of networks. • Clemson played Alabama for the National Championship in the 2015 season, earning the year’s highest rating. Games with Oklahoma, North Carolina, Florida State and Notre Dame were also among the top-15

rated games of 2015. • The 2015 senior class had 49 of its 54 games on live television, including 44 on the ESPN family of networks. • Clemson has had at least 10 of its games televised each of the last 11 years and had an average of 12 per year on live television. • Three of the top seven rated ACC games in 2013 involved Clemson. Clemson’s win over Ohio State in the Orange Bowl drew a 6.7 rating with 11.4 million viewers. Only the national championship game between Auburn and Florida State had more. Clemson’s win over Georgia had a 4.8 rating and 8.14 million viewers (fifth) and the Clemson vs. Florida State game had a 3.4 rating and 5.68 million viewers (seventh). • Clemson served as the host of ESPN College GameDay in October 2015 for the game against Notre Dame, a contest the Tigers won 24-22. Clemson served as host of ESPN College GameDay twice during the 2013 sea-

son, the only school that could make that claim. It marked the first time a school served as host for the program twice in one season since 2008. • The exposure has led to great home attendance figures in Memorial Stadium. Clemson has led the ACC in average home attendance each of the last seven years. Clemson has finished in the top 20 in the nation in average home attendance every year since 1981. Clemson was 14th in 2015. Every game in 2015 was sold out and the average attendance was 84,038 for home games. Over one million people saw Clemson play in 2015, the first season with at least a million in the stands for Tiger games.

FORMER TIGERS • Brian Dawkins had his #20 retired by the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2012 season. Dawkins played 13 seasons for the Eagles and was named to the Pro Bowl seven times while playing for that franchise and nine times overall. He is now an ESPN commentator. He will be a candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017. • Dwight Clark had his #87 retired by the San Francisco 49ers after he finished his career in 1987. He was a starter on the 1981 and 1984 (seasons) Super Bowl Championship 49ers teams. He is most famous for his game-winning catch on a pass from Joe Montana against Dallas in the 1982 NFC Championship game. He was the NFL MVP in 1982, the only former Tiger to win NFL MVP honors. • Charlie Waters was a three-time Pro Bowl pick with the Dallas Cowboys. A member of the Cowboys’ Ring of Honor, he played on two Super Bowl Championship teams before going on to a coaching career at Oregon. • Waters and Jeff Bostic were both named to ESPN’s 40-Man Roster of Greatest Super Bowl players, released prior to Super Bowl XL. • The Perry brothers (William, Michael Dean) were starters on Clemson’s 1984 defense. Both were named to the ACC’s 50-Year Anniversary team in 2002. William played on Clemson’s 1981 National Championship team as a freshman, then on the Super Bowl Champion Bears of 1985. Michael Dean played in six Pro Bowls with Cleveland and Denver, second-most among former Tigers. Both were named ACC Player-

of-the-Year during their careers, William in 1984 and Michael Dean in 1987. They are the only brother combination in ACC history that can make that claim.

HALL OF FAME • Former Clemson Consensus All-American and 1981 National Championship team captain Jeff Davis was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2007. Davis is regarded as one of the great leaders of any team in Tiger history. He had 175 tackles on the 1981 team, leading the Tigers to a 12-0 record. • Davis was the second member of Clemson’s National Championship team to be enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame. Terry Kinard was inducted in 2001. Both are members of the Clemson Ring of Honor, and were in the same recruiting class (1978). • Clemson had a special night in New York City on Dec. 11, 2001. That evening, Terry Kinard was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and Kyle Young was a recipient of a National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Award. Clemson was the only school in the nation with one of each in 2001. • Terry Kinard was the first Tiger gridder to win a national individual award. He was named 1982 national defensive player-of-the-year by CBS. That year (his senior season), he was a unanimous first-team AllAmerican, the first unanimous All-American in Clemson football history. He was named to the ACC’s 50Year Anniversary team in 2002, and he was also listed among the top-50 athletes in the history of the ACC, regardless of sport. • Three former Clemson coaches are in the College Football Hall of Fame. The list includes John Heisman (1900-03), Jess Neely (1931-39) and Frank Howard (1940-69).

NFL DRAFT PICKS • Clemson has had at least one first-round draft choice each of the last four years, joining Alabama, Florida, Florida State and Texas A&M as schools that can make that claim. Shaq Lawson was the No. 19 pick of the first round by Buffalo in 2016. • Clemson was the only school in the nation with a top10 pick in 2014 and 2015. • With nine players drafted in 2016, it marked the eighth consecutive season that Clemson had at least four players selected in the NFL draft. Clemson has had 42 players drafted over the last seven years,

ninth-most in the nation. Only Ohio State had more draft picks than Clemson in the 2016 draft. • The ACC had 26 players drafted in 2016, and nine of the 26 were from Clemson. No other ACC team had more than three. • Clemson had seven defensive players drafted in 2016, most in the nation and most in one season in Clemson history. • Clemson has had seven defensive ends drafted in the last seven years and five wide receivers drafted in the last five years. • Clemson had a wide receiver taken in the first round of the NFL draft in 2013 and 2014, the only FBS team that could make that claim since 2007. Sammy Watkins was taken as the No. 4 selection of the Buffalo Bills in 2014, tied for the highest selection by a Tiger in history. Wideout DeAndre Hopkins was the No. 27 overall pick of the first round by the Houston Texans in 2013. Hopkins has already been selected to the Pro Bowl. • C.J. Spiller was the No. 9 overall selection of the 2010 NFL draft and the first ACC player chosen. In just his third year, he made the Pro Bowl.

NFL INFLUENCE • Twenty-four former Tigers have combined to win 32 Super Bowl Championship rings. That includes the 2013 season when Byron Maxwell started in the Super Bowl for the victorious Seattle Seahawks. Clemson’s leader is Jeff Bostic, who started on three Super Bowl Championship teams with the Washington Redskins. • Clemson has had a former player on a Super Bowl Championship team in eight of the last 18 years. • Three former Tigers were named to NFL All-Rookie teams in 2014. The list includes Bashaud Breeland of the Washington Redskins, Chandler Catanzaro of the Arizona Cardinals, and Sammy Watkins of the Buffalo Bills. With Stephone Anthony’s selection in 2015, six former Tigers have made an All-Rookie team over the last three seasons. • Brian Dawkins retired in 2011 as one of the great safeties in the history of the game and is an odds-onfavorite to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. A 1996 Clemson graduate, Dawkins was an All-American on Clemson’s 1995 team when he finished the season 10th in the nation in interceptions. He became the first player in NFL history in 2002 to register a sack,

interception, recovered fumble and receiving touchdown in the same game. He was named to the Pro Bowl nine times in his career, including the 2012 Pro Bowl after his final season. He was named to the Pro Bowl more than any other former Tiger. • Levon Kirkland was named to the NFL All-Decade team (1990s) for his play with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Dawkins was named to the All-Decade team for the 2000s for his play with the Philadelphia Eagles. • Thirty-seven former Tigers were on NFL rosters in 2015, the most in school history.

POLL PRESENCE • The 2015 season marked the 29th year that Clemson was ranked in the final AP poll. It was the eighth time in the last 11 years and fifth straight year that Clemson was ranked in the final poll. The Tigers were ranked No 1 in the College Football Playoff poll all six times it was published in 2015. Clemson was the first school to have a clean sweep of No. 1 rankings for one season in the CFP. • Clemson has had a streak of 50 consecutive weeks ranked in at least one poll twice, 1986-89 and 201114. • Clemson enters the 2016 season with an active streak of 20 consecutive weeks ranked in the top 25, seventh-longest in the nation. Clemson has been ranked in the top 10 in 11 straight polls, tied for the second longest active streak with Alabama. • Clemson was in the top 20 of all the final polls from 1986-91, a six-year streak. The Tigers had exactly two losses in each of those six seasons. • Clemson was ranked in the final top 20 of the AP poll six times in the 1980s. The Tigers were fifth in the nation in winning percentage during that decade. • Beating ranked opponents has been a hallmark of Clemson’s success. The Tigers have beaten an APranked opponent 26 of last 30 years, including 25 top-25 victories in the last 13 years. Head Coach Dabo Swinney has recorded 15 top-25 wins in his eight years at the helm, second-most in Clemson history. • Clemson defeated four top-25 teams in 2015, including top-10 teams from Notre Dame, North Carolina and Oklahoma. It was just the second year in history Clemson had three top 10 wins in the same year. • Clemson has 13 top-10 wins in the last 12 years, including three in bowl games over the last four years.

The 2015 Clemson football season was a landmark campaign in many ways. The Tigers finished with a 14-1 record, won the ACC Championship with a perfect 9-0 record and defeated three top-10 teams for just the second time in history. The Tigers were ranked No. 2 in the final polls, the second highest ranking in school history, and held the No. 1 ranking in all six of the College Football Playoff polls that led up to the bowl season. Clemson became just the eighth team in FBS history to win 14 games (Alabama became the ninth after winning the title) in one season. The Tigers reached this level of play thanks to balance on both sides of the ball. Clemson was the only team in the nation to rank in the final top 25 in scoring offense and defense, total offense and defense, passing offense and defense, and rushing offense and defense. Clemson was the only school in the top 15 in both total offense and defense, and had an average total offense advantage of +200 yards per game, secondlargest in the nation. There were many victories that will hold steadfast in the minds of Clemson fans for years to come. In October, the Tigers beat sixth-ranked Notre Dame in Memorial Stadium, 24-22, a victory that came down to the final seven seconds. A 23-13 win over 17th-ranked Florida State gave the Tigers the ACC Atlantic Division title. For the first time in history, Clemson won consecutive games over top-10 teams, a 45-37 win over No. 8 North Carolina in the ACC Championship game and 37-17 triumph over No. 3 (USA Today poll) Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl in the National Semifinal. Clemson’s program has made a steady progression under Dabo Swinney over the last five years when it has won at least 10 games each season, something only the Tigers and Alabama have done. That includes a 46-8 record by the recently graduated senior class, the most wins for a four-year period in Clemson history. The No. 2 final ranking was rewarding, but Swinney’s focus is ending at No. 1. “Spring and preseason practice are about getting to No. 1 (final ranking),” he said. “I am proud of what we did last year, but the offseason has been and will be about studying ourselves, our quality control, and challenging ourselves to evaluate what we do and how we do it.” A look to the 2016 roster shows that this era of success has a great chance to continue. The Tigers had a record 17 players selected first, second or third-team All-ACC in 2015, and 12 of them return. That includes seven on the offensive side of the ball (eight if you include wide receiver Mike Williams, who was secondteam All-ACC in 2014). Clemson returns eight starters from an offense that averaged a school record 514 yards per game and averaged 38.5 points per contest. That includes a 550yard, 40-point performance against Alabama’s No. 3 ranked defense in the national title game. Clemson gained at least 500 yards in each of the final 11 games of the season, a school record for consecutive 500-yard games. The previous record was five games. Defensively, the Tigers return just four starters from the 2015 unit that ranked 10th in total defense, second in pass completion defense and fourth in sacks. For the third straight year, Clemson led the nation in total tackles for loss. Six starters from last year’s defense decided to turn professional early, most in school history. That includes consensus All-American Shaq Lawson, All-America defensive backs Mackensie Alexander and Jayron Kearse, and defensive end Kevin Dodd, who ranked second in the nation in tackles for loss. Safety T.J. Green and his 130 tackles, and Travis Blanks, who had 30 career starts but earned his degree, also departed with eligibility remaining. Four of those players were taken in the top 100 of the NFL Draft, and five were drafted. Defensive coordinator Brent Venables faced the

same experience issue entering the 2015 season when he returned just three starters on defense, the fewest for the program since 1979. Clemson returns its starting punter and placekicker, giving the Tigers 14 returning starters from last season in addition to 52 returning lettermen. Two players who started in 2014, Williams and linebacker Korrin Wiggins, are also back, giving Clemson 16 returning players with starting experience for the course of a season. While the outlook is bright, Clemson is a young team this year with just 22 scholarship juniors and seniors and 63 freshmen or redshirt freshmen and sophomores. “We have some players who can play right now, but we have a lot of young players who will have to learn,” Swinney said. “That is what we do in the spring and the fall camp. We have to set a great foundation from a depth standpoint. We have to be ready from the start, especially since we open at Auburn.”

OFFENSE As stated above, Clemson returns nine players on offense who have been starters for at least one season previously. Eight of them have made an All-ACC team at one time or another, the most returning all-conference players on the offensive side of the ball in school history. The Tigers return the only quarterback in FBS history to have 4,000 passing and 1,000 rushing yards in a season, the school’s single season record holder in terms of rushing yardage, a receiver who ranks in the top five in school history in total receptions, another receiver who has a 1,000-yard season on his résume, a tight end who was a Mackey Award finalist in 2015, a unanimous freshman All-American tackle, and two other offensive linemen who were all-conference in 2015. All that core of returning players for 2016 did was become the first ACC team in history to gain at least 3,000 rushing and 4,000 passing yards in a season. The balanced attack accounted for 34 rushing touchdowns and 35 through the air. “A year ago at this time (preseason 2015) we had a lot of question marks on offense. Deshaun Watson did not go through spring practice, so there were some questions about how he would hold up coming off a knee injury. Mitch Hyatt is no longer a myth. We saw what he could do last year when he played over 1,000 snaps. We had other young and inexperienced linemen come through. “We have a lot of veterans returning on offense, including our quarterback, who I thought was the best player in the nation last year. He is a year more experienced and more comfortable. The sky is the limit for that young man.” Watson finished his sophomore slate with 1,105

yards on the ground and 12 rushing scores. He was third in the nation in total rushing yards by a quarterback and broke the Clemson record set by Woodrow Dantzler. He had five 100-yard rushing games over the last seven contests and averaged 103 per game during that stretch. The native of Gainesville, Ga., completed 333 of 491 passes for 4,104 yards and 35 touchdowns. His 5,209 yards of total offense set an ACC record. He closed the season with 478 yards of total offense, including 405 yards passing and four scores, against Alabama’s third ranked defense. The 478 yards of total offense were a record for a championship game. At season’s end Watson was the consensus firstteam All-America quarterback, a first in Clemson history, and was third in the voting for the Heisman Trophy, the highest finish in that award balloting in history. Watson will have plenty of weapons at his disposal in 2016. His receiver unit features returning first-team All-ACC pass catcher Artavis Scott. The junior has led Clemson in receptions each of the last two years. He had 93 catches for 901 yards and six touchdowns a year ago when his reception total was second best in Clemson history. Only Sammy Watkins (2013) has had more catches in a season than Scott. Williams played just 12 snaps last season and had two receptions for 20 yards and a score. All of that came in the first quarter of the 2015 season. Williams suffered a neck injury while catching a scoring pass against Wofford in the first quarter of the opener and was out for the season. In 2014, Williams led Clemson in receiving yards with 1,030 on 57 catches and he ranked among the top 20 players in the nation in yards per catch (min 50 catches) with an 18.1 average. Hunter Renfrow was the talk of the country during the College Football Playoff when he caught three scoring passes, including two in the National Championship Game against Alabama. The original walk-on from Myrtle Beach finished the year with 33 catches for 492 yards and five scores. He also had a unique ability to draw interference penalties. Deon Cain had a strong freshman year with 34 catches for 582 yards and five scores. The native of Florida had a streak of five straight games with a touchdown catch, breaking the Clemson freshman record that had been held by Watkins. He had 5-96 and a score at South Carolina to key Clemson’s first win in Columbia since 2007. Ray-Ray McCloud is another young player with a strong upside. He had 29 catches as a true freshman for 251 yards and a score. He is also a capable runner out of the backfield. Trevion Thompson had a big reception in the win over South Carolina and finished his freshman year with 10 catches for 115 yards. Wayne Gallman set the Clemson single-season

ARTAVIS SCOTT IS A TWO-TIME ALLACC SELECTION AT WIDE RECEIVER.


rushing record in grand style with 1,527 yards in 14 games. That total was 182 yards more than Raymond Priester accumulated 20 years earlier. Gallman also broke the school record for yards from scrimmage in a season with 1,740, as he contributed 213 receiving yards on 21 receptions. That record had been held by all-time great C.J. Spiller, who had 1,727 yards from scrimmage in 2009 when he finished sixth in the Heisman Trophy race. Gallman finished the season with a record nine 100-yard rushing games and has 12 for his two years in the Clemson backfield. He needs just four 100-yard games to break Priester’s career record. Adam Choice actually has the second most career rushing yards among returning running backs with 218 in just six games as a freshman in 2014. Choice was ahead of Gallman on the depth chart at midseason that year when he suffered a torn ACL at Boston College. He missed all of last year, but is expected to be 100 percent his fall. C.J. Fuller had 171 yards rushing in 2015 as a freshman and is second among returning rushers for this year, while Tyshon Dye also will be a factor in the backfield. Jordan Leggett gives Watson another target on offense. A second-team All-American by several services, Leggett was one of three finalists for the Mackey Award in 2015 when he had 40 receptions for 525 yards and eight scores. The native of Florida needs just 28 receptions, 394 yards and two scores to become Clemson’s career leader among tight ends in all three categories. Clemson returns three starters on the offensive line. Center Jay Guillermo leads the way after making second-team All-ACC as a junior when he was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week three times, tying a Clemson record for player of the week selections by an offensive lineman. Hyatt, starting left tackle, came to Clemson as a high school All-American and five-star prospect and he lived up to his billing. He was a third-team All-ACC selection, the first true freshman offensive lineman in Clemson history to be named to any All-ACC team. He was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week for Clemson’s win over Florida State, the first true freshman in Clemson history to earn that honor. Tyrone Crowder is a redshirt junior who made thirdteam All-ACC as a sophomore and gives the Tigers stability at the guard position. Maverick Morris gained a lot of experience as a reserve last year and will challenge Crowder for playing time. There are many young offensive linemen who figure to challenge for starting positions at the other two vacancies. Taylor Hearn is a strong guard who played 180 snaps in 14 games as a redshirt freshman, while Jake Fruhmorgen played 245 snaps in 11 games as a true freshman tackle. Justin Falcinelli is a lineman capable of playing many positions.

DEFENSE Venables has faced the challenge of replacing more than half of his starters before. And he doesn’t have to dig far into his personal archives to look at his notes on how to replace at least seven starters in a season. Clemson had six seniors off its 2014 defense play in an NFL game in 2015. That included two first-round draft picks, Vic Beasley and Stephone Anthony. Now, six underclassmen off his 2015 defense turned pro early. But, Swinney feels he has the talent to keep Clemson at a level of excellence on the defensive side of the ball. “I am pleased where we are on defense,” said Swinney. “I’m encouraged because I believe we will have more competitive depth than we had last year. “Last year our first 11 could play against anybody, but after that there were so many freshmen that we held our breath that the first team guys did not get hurt. There was not a drop off in talent, but there was in

terms of experience. We were fortunate last year on defense from a health standpoint.” While Swinney has just four returning starters on defense, three of them were All-ACC performers in 2015 when Clemson ranked in the top 10 in the nation in six different defensive categories, including sacks and tackles for loss. He has a returning all-conference performer at each level of defense, something few coaches can claim. Ben Boulware is the emotional leader of the defense from his linebacker position. The senior had 138 tackles last year to rank second on the team behind senior B.J. Goodson. Boulware had 23 quarterback pressures, more than any other Tiger (yes, more than Lawson and Dodd), and he had eight tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. The native of nearby Anderson, S.C., added two interceptions, including one in the Orange Bowl win over Oklahoma when he was named the game’s top defensive player. He is the only linebacker in Clemson history to have an interception in a bowl game two years in a row. Replacing Goodson and Blanks won’t be easy. Goodson led Clemson in tackles in seven games, including all three games in December and January against top10 teams North Carolina, Oklahoma and Alabama. But there is some experience returning. Dorian O’Daniel is a lot like Goodson in that he has been a backup his first three years and is ready to move into a prominent role. O’Daniel had 19 tackles on special teams last year, 12 more than any other player. There are many other young linebackers in the mix for important playing time. Kendall Joseph missed half the season due to various injuries, but had 11 stops and four quarterback pressures in limited time. Jalen Williams played in all 15 games and had 15 tackles in 2015. He made a big play against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on a fourth down. Twin brothers J.D. Davis and Judah Davis combined for 15 tackles as reserve linebackers. Clemson’s defensive line has featured great depth during this run of five consecutive seasons of at least 10 wins and that should be the case again this year. The line features the return of an All-ACC player and a freshman All-American, plus a third player who is a returning starter. Fifth-year senior Carlos Watkins returns to lead the defensive line. The native of Forest City, N.C., was a first-team All-ACC selection in 2015 when he had 69 tackles and eight tackles for loss to go with 3.5 sacks. He has been named a preseason first-team All-Ameri-

can by four different publications. He started 14 of the 15 games and had one of the most memorable plays of the year when he took on two Notre Dame offensive linemen and stopped Irish quarterback Deshone Kiser at the one-yard-line on a twopoint play with seven seconds left. Scott Pagano is a second returning starter at the defensive tackle position. The native of Hawaii started nine games a year ago and had 51 tackles in 352 snaps. He was a big reason Clemson allowed just 125 yards a game rushing last year. Christian Wilkins started just one game, but had 84 tackles in 473 plays, more stops than any other defensive tackle. The first-team freshman All-American had 10 tackles in the win over Louisville, but he will be remembered the most for his 31-yard pass reception on a fake punt against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, a play that changed the momentum of the game. Wilkins also saw some time at defensive end in the spring, and could see considerable playing time on the edge. Freshman tackle Dexter Lawrence was rated among the top 10 players in the nation coming out of high school and entered Clemson in January. Lawrence was the most productive defensive player in spring practice in terms of points per play, according to Venables’ intricate rating system. Jabril Robinson is another defensive tackle who will see playing time. The sophomore had a productive 14 tackles in just 67 plays as a run stopper in 2015. Albert Huggins is another sophomore with promise who had 12 tackles in five games. Clemson must replace Lawson and Dodd at the defensive end positions. They combined for 49 tackles for loss in 2015, more than any defensive duo in Clemson history. But lettermen Austin Bryant and Richard Yeargin have returned after their respective freshman seasons. Bryant saw considerable action against Oklahoma after Lawson was hurt in the first quarter. He finished 2015 with 35 tackles in 219 snaps over 13 games, including eight in 63 plays against the Sooners. Yeargin had 15 tackles in 147 snaps in 10 games. Clelin Ferrell is another young player who will be a factor at defensive end. The secondary is led by cornerback Cordrea Tankersley, a third-team All-ACC selection last year who led the team and ranked 20th in the nation in interceptions with five. Tankersley had 60 tackles, including 51 first hits and a team-best 11 passes broken up, giving him 16 passes defended for the season. The other three starting slots are available after Al-

OUTLOOK

MARCUS EDMOND WAS A SURPRISE STANDOUT IN THE SPRING AND IS IN GOOD SHAPE TO MAKE AN IMPACT IN THE SECONDARY IN 2016.

Ryan Carter, a versatile defensive back who played his high school football with Gallman in Georgia, had 20 tackles in 14 games with two starts as a nickel back in 2015. He could start at safety, nickel back or cornerback in 2016. Van Smith is a safety who showed his abilities against Miami (Fla.) last year when he had six tackles and an interception in just 16 plays of reserve action. Adrian Baker started three games at cornerback last year and had a pair of interceptions in key situations in the red zone, but he suffered a torn ACL in spring practice. Marcus Edmond is listed as a starter at cornerback heading into August camp and will be challenged by Mark Fields, the son of a former NFL linebacker with the Carolina Panthers. Fields played in 13 games in 2015 as a reserve.

SPECIAL TEAMS

exander, Green and Kearse all opted for the NFL with at least a year of eligibility remaining. Green finished with 130 tackles, third-best on the team, while Kearse had 87 stops, including 6.5 tackles for loss. Alexander did not allow a touchdown catch over his final 22 games as a starter.

Jadar Johnson was the surprise of spring practice according to Swinney, who has seen veteran players step up as seniors before throughout his tenure. Goodson and Dodd were examples of that in 2015, and Johnson is a prime candidate for 2016 from his safety position.

Clemson returns its starting punter and placekicker for 2016. Kicker Greg Huegel wasn’t even listed in the 2015 media guide. He joined the team in August as a walk-on, won the job and never let go. He finished the season with 27 field goals, most in the nation, and scored 138 points, breaking Spiller’s school record for total points by 10. Huegel made 17-17 field goals in the regular season against ACC teams, the best percentage in the nation against conference foes, and made 10 field goals against AP top-25 teams, also most in the nation. He was named a second-team All-American by Si.com and a freshman All-American by multiple services. Andy Teasdall returns for his senior year as Clemson’s punter. Teasdall averaged just 39.5 yards per punt in terms of gross yardage, but he had a solid 38.1 net figure, fifth-best by a Clemson punter in the last 20 years. He had 23 punts inside the 20 with just one touchback, the second-best ratio in Clemson history. Opponents had just 97 punt return yards all season.

HEISMAN TROPHY CANDIDATE DESHAUN WATSON

0

Watson has thrown zero interceptions in the fourth quarter in his career. He has completed 67-94 (.713) for 817 yards and seven touchdowns.

1

Watson was the No. 1 quarterback in the nation by the Manning Award and the Davey O’Brien Award in 2015. He was the first Clemson quarterback to win either award.

2

Guided Clemson to a No. 2 final ranking in both polls last season, the second-highest final ranking in school history.

3

Watson’s finish in the 2015 Heisman Trophy race. He was the first finalist from Clemson to make the trip to New York City.

4

Watson’s uniform number. The number was retired by the program in honor of two-time first-team Academic All-American and two-time ACC Player of the Year Steve Fuller after the 1978 season. With Fuller’s permission, it was taken out of retirement for Watson, who wears a patch on his shoulder that honors Fuller. Watson also wore the number in high school.

5

Number of 100-yard rushing games Watson had during the 2015 season. All five came over the last seven games of the season and he averaged 103 yards a game on the ground over those seven games. He had a career-high 145 yards in the College Football Playoff semifinal game against Oklahoma.

10

Watson was 10th in the nation in passing efficiency in games away from home with a 155.5 mark. He completed 68 percent of his passes away from Death Valley.

11 12

35-35

His final 2015 ranking in the nation in passing efficiency. Incredibly, that was also the final ranking in that category for Clemson quarterback Homer Jordan in 1981 when Clemson won the national title.

13

Watson gained 1,105 rushing yards for the season, but 774 of them came away from home. He ranked 13th in the nation among all players, not just quarterbacks, in rushing yards away from home. He ranked first among quarterbacks.

9

Had nine different games in 2015 in which he had at least one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown. He has done it 11 times in his career.

Watson threw 35 touchdown passes and passed 37 academic hours during the 2015-16 academic year. He is believed to be the first FBS quarterback to have at least 35 of each in the same academic year.

39

Number of records Watson holds in the Clemson record book on a game, season and career basis entering the 2016 season.

14 15

87.8

Watson averaged 347 yards of total offense per game in 2015, but he had a 362-yard average against top-25 teams, meaning he averaged 15 more yards per game against ranked teams than his overall average.

16

7 8

21

47

Led Clemson to 14 wins in 2015, tying the national record for wins by a starting quarterback in a season.

Clemson had 19 plays of 40 yards or more in 2016. Deshaun Watson was involved in 17 of them, 14 passes and three rushes.

Watson closed the 2015 season with a Clemson record streak of eight straight games with at least 300 yards of total offense. That included a high of 478 against Alabama in the National Championship game, a record for any quarterback in the national championship game. He has five career games of at least 400 yards total offense.

Watson has completed at least 20 passes in a game 11 times in his career. Clemson has won 10 of the 11, with the only loss coming to Alabama in the National Championship game at the end of the 2015 season. Twenty-one times in 2015, Watson picked up a first down on a third-down rush, eighth-best among all players nationally.

6

Watson averaged seven yards per rush on first down in 2015, the seventh-best average in the nation among players with at least 100 carries.

20

Quarterbacked Clemson to at least 500 yards of total offense in each of the last 11 games of the 2015 season. That is a record for consecutive 500-yard games by a Tiger team.

Consecutive games Watson has thrown at least one touchdown pass entering the 2016 season. In fact, he has thrown at least two in 12 of those 16.

Threw for six touchdown passes in his first career start as a Clemson Tiger in a 50-35 win over North Carolina in 2014.

@ClemsonFB

17 18

Has 18 wins as Clemson’s starting quarterback against just two losses over two seasons. That 90 percent winning mark is best in school history. He needs another 14 wins in 2016 to tie the record of 32 held by Tajh Boyd and Rodney Williams.

19

Watson passed 19 hours in the summer of 2016, leaving him with just eight hours to pass this fall to earn his Clemson degree in only three years.

Watson’s touchdown responsibility in 2015, an ACC record. He had 35 touchdown passes and ran for 12 more. ESPN invented the QBR statistic a few years back. Watson had an 87.8 QBR in 2015, which ranked second in the nation.

609

Watson gained 5,209 yards of total offense in 2015, an all-time ACC record. He eclipsed the previous record that was held by Philip Rivers of NC State in 2003 by 609 yards. Rivers had an even 4,600 yards that season.

1,121

Entering the 2015 season, many wondered if Watson could hold up physically for an entire season. He went on to start every game and played 1,121 snaps, more than any other Clemson player in a season, regardless of position, in history. For 698 of those plays he either passed or ran the ball.

1,165

Number of points Watson received in the 2015 Heisman Trophy voting. He had 148 first-place votes, 240 for second and 241 for third.

4000/1000

In 2015, Watson became the first quarterback in FBS history to throw for at least 4,000 yards and rush for at least 1,000 in a season.

CLEMSON SCHEDULE

For the fourth time in the last five years, Clemson will open and close its season against teams from the Southeastern Conference according to the schedule released by the Atlantic Coast Conference in February. The Tigers open their 12-game slate at Auburn on September 3, and close it with a home game against South Carolina on November 26. In between, Clemson will play 10 contests, eight against teams from the ACC. The Tigers were 8-0 in the league last season, then won the ACC title for the second time in five years with a league championship win over North Carolina. In 2016, Clemson has ACC road games against Georgia Tech, Boston College, Florida State and Wake Forest and home league games with Louisville, NC State, Syracuse and Pittsburgh. “This schedule follows our formula from a nonconference standpoint with our traditional rivalry game against South Carolina, plus another game from a Power Five Conference,” said Head Coach Dabo Swinney. “This year, that team is Auburn, and they will come to Clemson in 2017. Then we pick up Texas A&M for two years before we play Notre Dame again in 2020. “It is another challenging schedule overall. We will have to be at our best from the first week, as Auburn is a very difficult place to play. We saw that in 2010 when we took a National Championship Auburn team to overtime. “I like the position of the open date in week eight, closer to the middle of the season than we have had in recent years. It is also just the second time in 24 years we have not had to play consecutive games on the road, which is good for our team and our fans. “We have four new teams on the schedule, including an outstanding Pittsburgh program, who we have not played in nearly 40 years.” Clemson opens the season at Auburn, the first time the Tigers have been to the Plains since the third week of the 2010 season when the ACC Tigers took Cam Newton and the SEC Tigers to overtime before dropping a 27-24 contest. Clemson has beaten Auburn twice

since that meeting six years ago. The Tigers have consecutive home games scheduled September 10 and 17, respectively. Troy comes to Clemson for the second time in history on the former date and South Carolina State follows the next week. Clemson has a 16-game home winning streak entering 2016, the second longest active streak in the nation. The Tigers go back on the road on September 22 — just five days after the SC State game — to face Georgia Tech in Atlanta. Clemson suffered its most recent regular season loss at Georgia Tech in November 2014. Clemson’s ACC home opener is against Louisville on October 1. The Tigers have won each of the first two meetings with the Cardinals since they joined the ACC, but both games have been close. Clemson won the meeting at home in 2014 by a 23-17 score, then downed the Cardinals, 20-17, in Louisville last year. That was the second closest game Clemson had during its undefeated regular season in 2015. Swinney’s team then plays at Boston College on Friday night October 7. It will be Clemson’s first Friday night regular season game in 60 years, but the Tigers did gain victory in their last Friday night game at any point in the season. That came in the 2014 Orange

Bowl, when Clemson beat a sixth-ranked Ohio State team in Miami, 40-35. Clemson opens the second half of its schedule with a home game against an NC State team that has been to a bowl game each of the last two years under Head Coach Dave Doeren. After an open date, Clemson heads to Tallahassee, Fla., to face Florida State on October 29, a program that has won at least 10 games each of the last four years. The winner of the Clemson vs. Florida State game has won the ACC Atlantic Division every year since 2008, Swinney’s first year at Clemson. Clemson closes the regular season with home games in three of its last four contests, the first time that has been the case since 2012. Syracuse comes to Clemson on November 5, then Pittsburgh plays at Clemson for the first time on November 12. It will be just the second meeting in history between the two schools. Just as the Tigers did in 2014, the program will celebrate Senior Day in the next to last home game. The Tigers conclude their ACC schedule and road schedule on November 19 at Wake Forest. South Carolina will be the final opponent in Death Valley on November 26.

CLEMSON IS 2-0 AGAINST LOUISVILLE SINCE THE CARDINALS JOINED THE ACC, BUT BOTH GAMES HAVE BEEN DECIDED BY SIX POINTS OR LESS.

MEDIA INFORMATION

ACC COACHES TELECONFERENCE

MEDIA CREDENTIALS

MEDIA SERVICES

The ACC holds a teleconference for the media every Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. throughout the season. The first session is August 31 and the last is November 22. The final teleconference (Nov. 22) will be held on Tuesday of Thanksgiving week. Every coach has 10 minutes to make an opening statement and answer questions. Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly is available the weeks the Fighting Irish play ACC teams. There is a replay of each teleconference at TheACC.com.

Arrangements for media credentials for Clemson’s seven home football games in 2016 must be made through the Clemson Athletic Communications Office. Requests by accredited media members should be made through the SportsSystems online credentialing system. Please contact Sam Blackman or any member of the athletic communications team for more information. Priority for the issuance of credentials will be given to national publications, daily newspapers, radio stations, television stations and online outlets which cover Clemson football or our opponent on a regular basis. Due to space limitations, credential quantities may be limited to a number lower than the total requested. Should demand exceed supply, student publications, radio stations and websites that do not regularly cover Clemson or our opponent, may be limited to one working media credential and/or one sideline photo pass. Weekly publications, non-broadcasting radio representatives and other online-only outlets may not be granted credentials. Other credential requests will be filled on a spaceavailable basis. Non-working spouses, dates, relatives, non-workers and anyone 16 years of age or younger are not permitted in the press box. Media credentials must be requested at least 72 hours prior to the game. Media credential holders in the press box who are not actively covering the game, or credential wearers on the sideline who are not on assignment, will be asked to leave those respective areas.

MEDIA WILL-CALL Media will call window will continue to be operated on game days outside of Gate 16 at Memorial Stadium (south side of stadium) for the distribution of credentials which have not been mailed. Proper ID will be required.

PHOTOGRAPHERS AND VIDEOGRAPHERS Clemson follows the guidelines established by the NCAA Communications Committee and the ACC regarding sideline control to insure the sideline is a working media area. The following guidelines are adhered to: 1) Each photographer is required to wear a photo vest. 2) Photo vests must be secured at the photographer’s credential pickup at the entrance to the press box. Both the credential and the photo vest must be worn on the field. 3) Prior to kickoff while recruits are present, photographers are not allowed south of the goalpost in the west endzone nor west of the south sideline 50-yard line. 4) After kickoff, no photographers are permitted in the bench area nor on the playing field. 5) Photo assistants or others holding a “sideline” pass must remain out of the photo area immediately adjacent to the playing field. This will insure that photographers/ videographers have the appropriate working area. 6) Tripods are not permitted on the sidelines. 7) The areas behind the team benches are considered bench areas and are to be used only for the passage between the north and south sidelines. This area may not be used as a photo zone.

PRESS BOX The Bob Bradley Press Box is located on the first floor on the south side of Memorial Stadium. All radio and TV booths, in addition to the press area, are now on the same level. Photographers are encouraged to use the space available at field level, adjacent to the entrance of the Clemson locker room in the WestZone.

2016 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE


DABO SWINNEY

THE TIGER LEADER WAS NATIONAL COACH OF THE YEAR BY 10 DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS AND PUBLICATIONS IN 2015 AFTER LEADING CLEMSON TO A NO. 2 FINAL RANKING IN BOTH POLLS.


@ClemsonFB

HEAD COACH DABO SWINNEY DABO SWINNEY

THE SWINNEY FILE PLAYING EXPERIENCE

Lettered three years at Alabama (1990-92); also a member of the 1989 team ... member of the 1992 National Championship team ... Academic All-SEC and SEC Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll member in 1990,92.

HEAD COACH 14th season at clemson 8th full Season as head coach alabama '93 There is a strong coaching heritage over the 120 years of Clemson football that dates to the early 1900s, when John Heisman led the program. Jess Neely and Frank Howard continued the winning and joined Heisman in the College Football Hall of Fame. Danny Ford, a finalist for the Hall of Fame in 2017, led Clemson to the 1981 National Championship. Dabo Swinney has been at Clemson for just eight years as head coach, but he has cemented himself among the Tiger legends of the past. He will be the first person to tell you that the program has not reached all of its goals just yet, but he took the 2015 Tigers to the brink of winning the program’s second National Championship. Swinney guided Clemson to the No. 1 national ranking in every College Football Playoff poll in 2015, and led the Tigers to their first National Championship Game appearance under the new format after his team defeated Oklahoma 37-17 in the Capital One Orange Bowl on December 31. The Tigers led Alabama in the fourth quarter of the championship game, but came up just short, 45-40, in an epic game in Glendale, Ariz. Following the team’s 14-1 record and No. 2 final ranking, he was the recipient of 10 National and two ACC Coach-of-the-Year honors. The win over Oklahoma made him just the second coach in college football history (joining Alabama’s Bear Bryant) to beat the Sooners in two different bowl games. Clemson’s 13th win, which came against North Carolina in the ACC Championship Game on December 5, established a single-season school record. It was

the Tigers’ 15th ACC Championship, matching Florida State for most in history. All told, the Tigers defeated four teams that finished the season in the top 15 of both polls, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, North Carolina and Florida State. He coached Deshaun Watson to a record-setting sophomore season. The quarterback became Clemson’s first Heisman Trophy finalist after becoming the first player in FBS history to pass for at least 4,000 yards and rush for at least 1,000 yards in a season. Watson was the ACC Player-of-the-Year and Most Valuable Player of the ACC Championship Game and Orange Bowl. He won the Davey O’Brien and Manning awards, given annually to the nation’s top quarterback, and was Clemson’s second ACC Athlete-of-the-Year in history. Also in 2015, a record 17 players were named to one of three All-ACC teams in 2015, including all five starting offensive linemen for the first time in school history. The 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons were also noteworthy, with three top-15 final rankings in the polls. Clemson joined Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State and Oregon as the only schools in the nation to make that claim. Each of Clemson’s teams from 2011-15 also won 10+ games, the first time the program has done it five straight seasons. Only Alabama has duplicated the feat. Over the past five seasons, Clemson has compiled a 56-12 record, the most wins in a five-year period in school history. Thirty-six of the victories have come against ACC teams. The 2015 seniors finished their ca-

reers with a 46-8 record, including a 29-4 mark in the ACC. Clemson was in the top 10 percent of APR scores and the final top 25 of the AP and USA Today polls in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, the only FBS program that could make that claim. In eight years (seven full seasons) as the Tigers’ head coach, Swinney has directed Clemson to a 75-27 overall record (.735) and a 47-14 ACC regular-season mark (.770). He has also led the Tigers to the ACC Championship game three times, won two ACC Championships, won or shared four ACC Atlantic Division titles, and won five bowl games. In 2014, Clemson overcame a slew of season-ending injuries and a difficult road schedule to register a 10-3 overall record and 6-2 mark in ACC regular-season games. Evidence of the mass injuries were shown by the fact that 48 different Tigers started at least one game among the 24 regular positions. The Tigers finished the 2014 season ranked No. 15 in both the AP and coaches polls and was No. 17 in the final College Football Playoff ranking. The top-15 ranking marked the fourth straight year Clemson finished ranked in the polls under Swinney, who was named 2014 Grant Teaff National Coach-of-the-Year by FCA. He was also a finalist for the 2014 Bobby Dodd National Coach-of-the-Year Award, and won the Gene Stallings Award. Swinney’s Tigers joined Alabama, Florida State and Oregon as the only schools in the nation ranked in the top 25 of the final polls each season from 2011-14. Losses at No. 12 Georgia and No. 1 Florida State within Clemson’s first three games of 2014 saw the Tigers in contention in the fourth quarter in both, includ-

ing an overtime loss to the Seminoles. But Clemson rebounded and won its next six games, all against ACC foes. With the 2014 Russell Athletic Bowl win over Oklahoma and Head Coach Bob Stoops, Swinney became the first and only coach in history to win three bowl games in consecutive seasons over teams whose head coaches had previously won a national title. The 2015 Orange Bowl win over Oklahoma made it four in a row. Defense was the key to success for the 2014 Tigers, as they led in the nation in total defense, pass efficiency defense, first downs allowed, third-down conversion percentage defense and tackles for loss along with being in the top five in many other defensive categories. Defensive end Vic Beasley was named ACC Defensive Player-of-the-Year as well as being a finalist for multiple national awards and a first-team All-American thanks to his 21.5 tackles for loss and 12 sacks. All season, he led active players in the nation in career tackles for loss (52.5) and career sacks (33). Linebacker Stephone Anthony and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett joined Beasley as First-Team All-ACC selections. Beasley and Anthony were both first-round draft choices in May 2015. Clemson’s young 2014 offense was set back with the injury to first-year freshman quarterback Deshaun Watson, who suffered injuries that forced him to miss more than half the season. He still had 14 passing touchdowns against only two interceptions and a 188.6 passing efficiency, one of the best figures in the country. The Tigers’ top pass catcher (Artavis Scott) and rusher (Wayne Gallman) were also freshmen. Scott had 76 receptions for 965 yards and eight touchdowns, while Gallman had 769 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Clemson capped off the 2013 season with a thrilling 40-35 victory over No. 6 Ohio State in the Orange Bowl. Clemson had an 11-2 record after finishing 7-1 in ACC regular-season games for the second year in a row. It marked Clemson’s first back-to-back 11-win seasons in school history. The Tigers had a 4-0 record in ACC road games, the first time that happened since 1995. The Tigers were No. 12 in the final BCS standings. It was the third straight year Clemson finished in the top 15 of the BCS standings, one of only six schools that could make that claim. Clemson, who was ranked No. 7 in the final USA Today poll and No. 8 in the final AP poll, was also one of only five programs ranked in the top 20 of every BCS standing from 2011 to 2013. For the fourth time in his first five full seasons as head coach, Swinney was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual National Coach-of-the-Year Award in 2013. Swinney was also one of 16 semifinalists for national coachof-the-year by the Maxwell Football Club Collegiate Coach-of-the-Year Award for the second year in a row. The Clemson offense continued to put up record-setting numbers in 2013, as it averaged 40.2 points and 507.7 yards per game. The Tiger defense also finished in the top 25 in the nation in scoring defense, total defense and turnovers forced. Clemson joined Florida State as the only schools in the nation to finish in the top 25 in the nation in scoring offense, scoring defense, total offense and total defense. Tajh Boyd broke almost every Clemson career record for quarterbacks thanks in part to 2013, when he completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 3,851 yards and 34 touchdowns. He also added a team-high 10 rushing touchdowns. Boyd’s 107 career passing touchdowns and 133 total touchdowns were ACC records as well. Sammy Watkins was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and was a first-team All-American, as he had 101 receptions for 1,464 yards and 12 touchdowns. He established Tiger career records for receptions, receiving yards and tied the receiving touchdowns mark as well. Along with Boyd’s selection as a Second-Team AllACC pick, offensive tackle Brandon Thomas, offensive guard Tyler Shatley, running back Roderick McDowell and placekicker Chandler Catanzaro were also named

to the All-ACC squad on offense. Beasley, who led the ACC in sacks (13) and added 23 tackles for loss, was a Consensus All-America selection. Defensive back Bashaud Breeland along with linebackers Spencer Shuey and Anthony also earned All-ACC honors on defense. The 2012 season (11-2) was a groundbreaking year for Swinney’s Tigers when looking at the overall consistency of the program. The seven conference wins in the regular season set a school record, while Clemson was co-champion of the ACC Atlantic Division. The school record for consecutive wins at Memorial Stadium (13) was also established, as was the record for consecutive wins by 14+ points (7). With Clemson’s thrilling 25-24 win over No. 7 Louisiana State in the 2012 Chick-fil-A Bowl, the Tigers finished the season ranked No. 9 in the USA Today poll. It was Clemson’s first top-10 finish in one of the two major polls since 1990. Clemson also reached the 11-win mark for the first time since its 1981 National Championship season. The Tigers finished No. 14 in the final BCS standings as well. The 2012 campaign featured a record-setting offense. Clemson had six of the 11 offensive players on the All-ACC first team chosen by the media and set over 80 Tiger team and individual records. Leading the way was Boyd, the ACC Player-of-theYear. The quarterback joined center Dalton Freeman as first-team All-Americans by AFCA, just the third time since 1945 that the AFCA first-team All-America quarterback and center were from the same school. Boyd’s favorite wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, had 18 receiving touchdowns, second-most in the nation, and was a second-team All-American. He was a big reason Clemson scored a then school-record 533 points. Swinney was a finalist for the 2012 Liberty Mutual National Coach-of-the-Year Award for the third time. He was also one of 16 semifinalists for national coach-ofthe-year by the Maxwell Football Club Collegiate Coachof-the-Year Award. Swinney’s 2011 squad, which ended the season ranked No. 22 in the nation, captured Clemson’s first ACC title since 1991 when it beat No. 3 Virginia Tech 38-10 in the ACC Championship game in Charlotte, N.C. It tied for the highest-ranked team the Tigers defeated in history. The win, the Tigers’ second over the Hokies in 2011, gave Clemson its first 10-win season since 1990. The Tigers’ four wins over top-25 ranked

teams established a school record. Swinney has 18 top25 wins in his head-coaching career, including nine victories over top-10 teams. The Tigers jumped out to an 8-0 record and a No. 6 national ranking after being unranked in the preseason. Games 3-5 marked a tough stretch, as Clemson hosted No. 19 Auburn, who entered with a national-best 17game winning streak, and No. 11 Florida State along with a road game at No. 10 Virginia Tech. The Tigers were victorious in all three contests by scores of 38-24, 35-30 and 23-3, respectively, marking the first time in history that an ACC team won three consecutive games over top-25 ranked (AP) teams. Clemson also held Virginia Tech without a touchdown for the first time in a game at Blacksburg since 1995. For his efforts, Swinney was named Bobby Dodd National Coach-of-the-Year in 2011 to become the first Tiger head coach to win a national coach-of-the-year award since 1981, when Danny Ford directed Clemson to the national title. Swinney, who was also one of five finalists for the Eddie Robinson National Coach-of-the-Year Award, one of 10 finalists for the Bear Bryant National Coach-ofthe-Year Award, one of 10 finalists for the Liberty Mutual Coach-of-the-Year Award and received the Regional AFCA Coach-of-the-Year Award in 2011, led the Tigers to their first Orange Bowl berth since 1981 with the help of five First-Team All-ACC players. Dwayne Allen (TE), Boyd (QB), Andre Branch (DE), Freeman (C) and Watkins (WR) all earned first-team honors, while Andre Ellington (RB), Catanzaro (PK) and Brandon Thompson (DT) earned second-team honors. Watkins was also Second-Team All-ACC as a specialist. Allen received the John Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end and totaled 50 receptions for 598 yards and eight touchdowns. Boyd set the school record for total yards (4,046), passing yards (3,828) and passing touchdowns (33), all marks he eclipsed in subsequent seasons. Branch, a finalist for the Hendricks Award, had an ACC-high 17 tackles for loss and an ACC-high 10.5 sacks, including tying school-records for tackles for loss (6) and sacks (4) in Clemson’s win at No. 10 Virginia Tech.

in the nation. The ACC Rookie-of-the-Year totaled 82 receptions for 1,219 yards and 12 touchdowns along with a 25.0-yard average and one touchdown on kickoff returns despite missing one game due to injury. Watkins teamed up with Ellington to give Clemson a 1,000-yard receiver and 1,000-yard rusher, as Ellington had 1,178 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns. Watkins was also an AP First-Team All-American, just the fourth in college football history as a first-year freshman. Swinney became just the second Tiger coach to lead Clemson’s program into a bowl game in his first two full years as head coach, joining his predecessor, Bowden. The 2010 schedule was one of the most challenging in school history, as nine bowl teams were on the regularseason slate and two of the four non-conference opponents were ranked in the top 25, just the second time in 21 years the Tigers faced two top-25 non-conference opponents in the regular season. The 2010 season included wins over bowl teams Georgia Tech, Maryland and NC State. NC State was ranked No. 23 in the nation and was leading the ACC in scoring. But the defense held NC State and Russell Wilson to just one touchdown and 13 points. The team excelled defensively in 2010 and was 13th in the nation in scoring defense and in the top 25 in both total defense and passing defense. C.J. Spiller was a unanimous first-team All-American in 2009 and Da’Quan Bowers duplicated the feat on the defense a year later. Bowers won the 2010 Nagurski Award as the nation’s top defensive player and he received the Hendricks Award as the country’s top defensive end. He was also a finalist for the Bednarik Award and Lombardi Award. He led the nation in sacks (15.5) and tied for the national lead in tackles for loss (26). Bowers was one of four First-Team All-ACC players in 2010, as he joined Jarvis Jenkins (DT) and DeAndre McDaniel (S) on defense and Chris Hairston (OT) on offense. Clemson and Maryland tied for the most FirstTeam All-ACC selections. In 2009, Swinney’s first full year as head coach, he led the Tigers to their first championship of the ACC’s Atlantic Division. The Tigers came just six points short of winning their first ACC title in 18 years. Swinney was named ACC Coach-of-the-Year by Sporting News and was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach-of-the-Year Award. Swinney accumulated nine wins, second-most

among FBS coaches in their first full year behind Oregon’s Chip Kelly. The nine wins tied for fourth-most in ACC history for a first-year head coach. He also led the Tigers to their first bowl win since 2005 in the 21-13 victory over Kentucky in the Music City Bowl. The Tigers reached the nine-win mark playing a schedule that included four games against top-15 opponents, just the second year in school history (1999 was the other) that Clemson played four games against teams ranked in the top 15 of the AP poll. The Tigers’ three FBS non-conference opponents had a combined record of 29-10 in 2009. Clemson gave Rose Bowlbound TCU one of its stiffest tests in a 14-10 Horned Frog victory on Sept. 26. Swinney’s first season included a six-game winning streak at midseason, a streak that saw the Tigers score 34+ points in every contest, a first in school history. During that stretch, the Tigers defeated No. 8 Miami (Fla.) on the road. The 40-37 overtime victory tied for the highest-ranked team Clemson has defeated on the road in history. That was the second of six straight wins, the longest winning streak for the Clemson program in four years. The streak also included a 40-24 win over Florida State and Bobby Bowden, the Hall of Fame coach who is first in victories in FBS history. The winning streak brought Clemson to a No. 15 national ranking in the AP poll after the ACC Atlantic Division clinching victory over Virginia on Nov. 21. The Tigers had success on offense, defense and special teams during the 2009 season. They were 28th in the nation and third in the ACC in scoring offense (31.1), while the defense was 20th in total defense (314.3) and seventh in pass defense (162.8). Clemson tied for fifth in the country in interceptions (21) as well. Clemson added a school-record six kick returns for touchdowns in 2009, four on kickoff returns and two on punt returns. The main reason Clemson was so outstanding on special teams was the play of college football’s most dynamic player (Spiller) in 2009. The Tiger running back was named MVP of the ACC in 2009 and was a Consensus All-American. He had five kick returns for touchdowns during the 2009 season, an all-time Clemson record, and established the NCAA record for kickoff returns for touchdowns in a career with seven. He was also the only FBS player to score at least one touch-

down in every game in 2009. Overall, the Tigers held down three positions on the All-ACC First-Team and five spots on the second team. Only Virginia Tech had more representatives. In October 2008, he was named Clemson interim head coach, replacing Tommy Bowden, who had been his position coach as a player at Alabama and was Clemson’s head coach since 1999. He led the Tigers to a 4-2 record over the remainder of the 2008 regular season, including a win over South Carolina in the regular-season finale. That strong finish led to a Gator Bowl bid against Nebraska. On Dec. 1, 2008, the interim tag was removed from the title and he was named the program’s head coach. At the time, there had been 28 interim head coaches at the FBS level since 1970 and those coaches had combined for a record of 26-86-2. Only one of those 28 interim coaches posted a winning record, and that was Swinney. When he was hired as the head coach, Swinney became just the second interim coach to be elevated to the head coach position at the same school during that time period. Swinney hit the ground running in his first week as interim head coach, as he prepared for a 5-1 Georgia Tech team. He had to reorganize his staff and regroup his team and Clemson Nation in just five days. While the Tigers lost by four points, he accomplished many goals in that first week through his outstanding leadership. One of the most impressive demonstrations of unity came during the team’s “Tiger Walk.” Prior to the game against the Yellow Jackets, Swinney decided to have his team depart buses outside the Lot 5 parking lot near the WestZone at Memorial Stadium and experience the gameday atmosphere. Dressed in jackets and ties, the team was embraced by thousands of Tiger fans who stood 10 deep for the 200-yard march to the stadium. It was the centerpiece of his “All In” theme during his first week as head coach. It is a tradition that has continued. In his second week as head coach, an off-week, he invited the Clemson student body to a practice, and nearly 1,000 students showed up. He spoke to the group and actually allowed some to participate during practice, as they were selected to attempt a field goal, punt against a live rush and field a punt. He also took the entire team to the Greenville Children’s Hospital for a visit with young men and women fighting cancer.


HEAD COACH DABO SWINNEY He has continued his community involvement through his foundation. His foundation made the first contribution to the cancer fund established for former Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich. Many schools followed his lead the remainder of the season. The Liberty Mutual Coach-of-the-Year Award evaluates coaching performances in terms of coaching excellence, sportsmanship, integrity, academic excellence and community commitment. It is easy to see why Swinney was a national finalist for that award in his first full season as head coach in 2009, and again in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The 1993 Alabama graduate joined the Clemson staff prior to the 2003 season. In his 13 years as an assistant or head coach, the Tigers have finished in the top 25 of the polls nine times and have totaled 24 wins over top-25 teams, including victories over Florida State (6), Auburn (2), Miami (Fla.) (2), Oklahoma (2), Virginia Tech (2), Georgia (1), Louisiana State (1), Ohio State (1) and Tennessee (1) during his tenure in Tigertown. That includes 15 top-25 wins as a head coach. Swinney coached his wide receiver position to a level of consistency that had not been seen previously at Clemson. He had a wideout finish first or second in the ACC in catches in five of his six years as an assistant coach. In his first year, he had three of the top-10 receivers in the ACC, a first in Tiger history. He has coached a First or Second-Team All-ACC wideout (Derrick Hamilton, Airese Currie, Chansi Stuckey, Aaron Kelly, Jacoby Ford, Watkins, Hopkins, Scott, Mike Williams) in 12 of his 13 seasons in Tigertown, also an unprecedented feat at Clemson. In 2004 and 2005, he coached the ACC reception champion (Currie (2004), Stuckey (2005)). It was the first time Clemson had two different players lead the ACC in receptions in consecutive years. In 2007, Kelly led the ACC in yards, giving Swinney an ACC receiving king three out of four years. Stuckey earned First-Team All-ACC honors in back-to-back years, a first for a Tiger wide receiver in 25 years. In 2007, Swinney coached Kelly, a First-Team AllACC selection who led the league in receiving yards per

game and touchdown catches (11). He also finished second in receptions per game with 88 catches. The Alabama native has a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the nation. In 2006, he was listed as the No. 5 recruiter in the nation by Rivals. It marked the second straight year that he was lauded by the website as a top-25 national recruiter. He signed 38 players in his five recruiting seasons as an assistant coach and was a major reason Clemson’s 2008 recruiting class was rated No. 2 in the nation by ESPN.com when he signed 11 players. He was named one of the top-25 recruiters in the nation by Rivals.com in 2007 as well. When Swinney accepted the interim head coaching position on Oct. 13, 2008, he described his feelings as “bittersweet,” because he was taking over for Bowden, who had been his first position coach at Alabama in 1989. He had also brought Swinney back to the coaching profession in 2003 and has had a profound effect on his life. Both had followed similar paths as players, as Bowden was a walk-on at West Virginia and Swinney was a walk-on at Alabama. Swinney received a commerce & business administration degree from Alabama in 1993 after lettering three times (1990-92). A walk-on who went on to earn a scholarship, Swinney was a wide receiver on Alabama’s 1992 National Championship team. He was also named Academic All-SEC along with being an SEC Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll member in 1990 and 1992. Along with his appearance in the 1993 Sugar Bowl,

his Alabama teams played in the 1990 Sugar Bowl, 1991 Fiesta Bowl and 1991 Blockbuster Bowl. Both Sugar Bowl appearances came after winning the SEC Championship game. After his playing career, Swinney served as a graduate assistant from 1993-95 at Alabama, where he coached in the 1994 Gator Bowl and 1995 Citrus Bowl. In December 1995, he received a master’s degree in business administration from Alabama. He became a full-time assistant coach at Alabama in February 1996 under Head Coach Gene Stallings (now in the Hall of Fame) and coached a total of five seasons there on a full-time basis. Swinney was assigned to coach the Crimson Tide’s wide receivers and tight ends in 1996, a season that saw Alabama win the SEC Western Division title and make an Outback Bowl appearance. The following year, he solely coached the tight ends under Head Coach Mike DuBose. In 1998, he coached Alabama’s wide receivers, a position he held for three seasons. At the end of the 1999 campaign, Swinney coached the Crimson Tide in the 2000 Orange Bowl after winning the SEC Championship game. Wide receiver Freddie Milons was the game MVP. During his time at Alabama, Swinney was a part of six teams with 10+ wins, five top-10 finishes, one national title (1992), three SEC Championships (1989,92,99) and five SEC Western Division titles (1992,93,94,96,99) as a player and coach. As an assistant coach, he had 20 players either drafted or sign free-agent contracts with NFL teams. The list includes Hamilton, Currie, Kevin Youngblood, Stuckey and Milons, an All-American at Alabama. In 2015, 37 former players were on NFL rosters, most in Clemson history for one season. From April 2001 to February 2003, Swinney was in private business in Alabama. He married the former Kathleen Bassett in 1994. They have three sons, Will (18), Drew (16) and Clay (13).

FOOTBALL ADMINISTRATION WOODY McCORVEY

@ClemsonFB

ASSOCIATE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR FOOTBALL ADMINISTRATION 15th Season at Clemson ALABAMA STATE '72 Woody McCorvey returned to Clemson after 20 years to become Associate Athletic Director for Football Administration on Dabo Swinney’s first staff in 2009. McCorvey was Swinney’s position coach during his playing days at Alabama and served as wide receivers and tight ends coach on Danny Ford’s Tiger staff from 1983-89. McCorvey serves as the primary liaison between Swinney and the athletic and IPTAY administrations. He also oversees the management of the football administrative offices. His return has had a positive effect on the program. Three years after his return, the Tigers won their first ACC title in 20 years. The program has won two ACC Championships, been to eight bowl games and finished ranked in the top 25 six times. Clemson just completed its best five-year run in history with 56 wins and five top-25 finishes, including a No. 2 ranking in 2015. He supervises the football budget and works with the staff at Vickery Hall to oversee the team’s academic progress. Clemson has ranked in the top 10 percent of APR scores each of the past five years, one of only three schools that can make that claim. In the fall of 2015, 48 players were named to the honor roll, a semester record. He also makes speaking engagements and represents the staff at various meetings and functions. “He is my national security advisor,” said Swinney. “My experience with him dates to my days as a player at Alabama when he was my position coach. He coached at Clemson in the 1980s under Ford and knows all

about our winning tradition. He has been a part of 12 conference championship teams in his impressive career.” McCorvey worked seven seasons at Clemson between 1983-89. With McCorvey coaching the tight ends from 1983-85 and the wide receivers from 1986-89, Clemson posted a 60-19-3 record and won three ACC titles. During that time, the Tigers were invited to the 1985 Independence Bowl, the 1986 and 1989 Gator Bowls and the 1988 and 1989 Citrus Bowls. Clemson posted a 10-2 record in each of his last three seasons under Ford. Among the players he recruited were future Pro Bowlers Donnell Woolford and Chester McGlockton. He also coached NFL players Keith Jennings and K.D. Dunn. McCorvey coached at the Division I level for 26 years and went to a bowl game 17 of those seasons. Overall, he had 36 years of experience as a football coach. He coached or signed 36 players who went on to a professional football career as well. From 1990-08, he coached in the SEC every year, including each of the last five at Mississippi State, where he served as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator in addition to coaching the quarterbacks. He was a big reason the Bulldogs won eight games, including wins over Auburn, Alabama and Mississippi, in 2007. He also coached running back Anthony Dixon, who was a sixth-round draft pick by the 49ers in 2010, and Kyle Love, a freeagent signee. McCorvey coached at Tennessee for five years (1999-03). With him heading the running game, the Volunteers had a 46-14 record. He helped guide Tennessee to the 2000 Fiesta Bowl, 2001 Cotton Bowl, 2002 Citrus Bowl and 2002 and 2003 Peach Bowls. Tennessee won three consecutive New Year’s Day Bowl games from 2000-02 as well. Under McCorvey’s leadership, Tennessee maintained the school’s reputation of having an outstanding

rushing attack. The Volunteers led the SEC in rushing in 1999, averaging 191.3 yards per game. His work helped tailback Travis Stephens pace the SEC in rushing yards (1,464) in 2001. One year prior, McCorvey helped tailback Travis Henry finish second in the league and 14th in the nation in rushing yards (1,314). Another of his protegés was Jamal Lewis, who finished in the top five on the Tennessee career rushing list and was the No. 5 overall pick of the 2000 NFL draft. He has gone on to an All-Pro career in the NFL. Prior to joining the staff at Tennessee, McCorvey worked one season at South Carolina, where he served as the wide receivers coach in 1998 under former Tiger Assistant Coach Brad Scott. McCorvey took the South Carolina job following an eight-year stay at Alabama from 1990-97. He served seven seasons as its wide receivers coach and the 1996 campaign as offensive coordinator. He was the assistant head coach in 1997 as well. Alabama had five top-25 final rankings in his tenure, including three seasons in the top five. The Crimson Tide won the 1992 national title with McCorvey serving as wide receivers coach and Swinney as one of his student-athletes. That season culminated with a 34-13 win over heavily-favored Miami (Fla.) in the Sugar Bowl. Current Tiger Assistant Coach Danny Pearman was also on that staff. During the 1990-96 era, Alabama had a 70-16-1 record and played in six bowl games. With McCorvey at the controls of the offense in 1996, Alabama was 10-3, including a win over Michigan in the Outback Bowl. Alabama’s players flourished under his guidance. As offensive coordinator, running back Shaun Alexander established many school records and later went on to a Pro Bowl career with the Seattle Seahawks. In 1993, David Palmer established school records for catches and receiving yards along with earning first-team AllAmerica honors. Palmer was third in the Heisman Trophy balloting, the highest finish in history for an Alabama player at the time. From 1979-82, he served as an assistant coach at Alabama A&M and helped that program to the No. 6 rushing offense in Division II in 1981 after finishing 11th in the nation in scoring offense in 1980. McCorvey began his collegiate coaching career at North Carolina Central in 1978. McCorvey began his coaching career with a six-year stint (1972-77) at J.M. Tate Senior High School in Florida. A quarterback at Alabama State from 1968-71, McCorvey earned his bachelor’s degree from Alabama State in 1972 and a master’s degree from West Florida in 1977. McCorvey was the recipient of the 2015 AFCA Outstanding Achievement Award for his contributions to college football. In 2013, he was on the Rose Bowl Advisory Committee, and in 2014-15 was a member of the College Football Playoff Advisory Committee. In 2010, McCorvey was inducted into the Atmore (AL) Hall of Fame. The Atmore, Ala. native is married to the former Ann Brown. The couple has a son, Marlon, and daughter-in-law, Brooke.

PRESIDENT JAMES P. CLEMENTS JAMES P. CLEMENTS

@ClemsonFB

@Clemsonprez clemson.edu/president maryland-baltimore county '85 James P. Clements became Clemson University’s 15th president on Dec. 31, 2013. Since his arrival, the value of the Tiger Paw has never been higher, thanks to an increasing academic reputation and the national exposure from our recent success in athletics. Under Clements’ leadership, Clemson has broken records in admissions, enrollment, research, facilities development, athletics, graduation and retention rates, and fundraising, including the successful completion of the $1 billion Will to Lead capital campaign. Clements is a nationally recognized leader in higher education who has served as president of a university in three different athletic conferences – the Big East, the Big 12, and the ACC – where he is also the current chair of the ACC Council of Presidents. Before he came to Clemson, Clements served as the president of West Virginia University for nearly five years. During that time, WVU set significant records in private fundraising, enrollment and research funding. He was a leader in West Virginia – chairing the boards of the West Virginia United Health System, the WVU Hospitals and the WVU Research Corporation. And while he loved his time at WVU, he decided he would leave Morgantown for only one institution – Clemson University.

Clements was born in Arlington, Va., but spent the majority of his life in Maryland before relocating to West Virginia and until his move to Clemson. The grandson of a coal miner and a firefighter, and son to parents who taught him and his three older siblings that education was the key to a better life, Clements is a first generation college graduate. This was a key reason he pursued a life and career in higher education – to give others the same opportunity he was given by getting a formal education. Clements holds a B.S. in computer science and an M.S. and Ph.D. in operations analysis from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, as well as an M.S. in computer science from Johns Hopkins University. He was also awarded an honorary degree as Doctor of Public Education from his alma mater, UMBC. He has published and presented more than 75 papers in the fields of computer science, higher education, information technology, project management and strategic planning. He also served as principal investigator or co-investigator on more than $15 million in research grants. Prior to his service at WVU, Clements served as provost and vice president for academic affairs, vice president for Economic & Community Outreach and the Robert W. Deutsch Distinguished Professor of Information

Technology at Towson University, the second largest university in the University System of Maryland, where he was a four-time winner of the Faculty Member-ofthe-Year Award, given by Towson students. Clements’ Successful Project Management book is now in its seventh edition and is published in multiple languages and used in numerous countries. His other leadership positions include being a cochair of the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the only university president on the NACIE Board; a current member and past chair of the board of directors for the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, North America’s oldest higher education association; and board positions with the American Council on Education, the Business-Higher Education Forum, and the Council on Competitiveness. Clements also serves on the executive committee of APLU’s Commission of Innovation, Competitiveness & Economic Prosperity. And he previously chaired the ACE Commission on Leadership. Clements and his wife, Beth, have been married for 25 years and have four children - Ty, Hannah, Maggie and Grace - and a son-in-law, Tanner Coombs.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS DAN RADAKOVICH DAN RADAKOVICH DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS 4TH FULL Season at Clemson INDIANA (PA.) '80

By nearly every measure, Dan Radakovich led Clemson to one of the best athletic years in school history in 2015-16. With a Fall semester featuring berths in the national championship games in both football and men’s soccer and Spring ACC championships in men’s golf and baseball, the Tigers recorded their highest finish in the Learfield Director’s Cup in a decade. In the classroom, 78 student-athletes earned degrees and, while competing for national titles, both football and men’s soccer recorded record GPAs. Clemson’s Graduation Success Rate and Academic Progress Rate continue to be among the nation’s best as football, men’s basketball and women’s golf were recognized among the top 10 percent nationally in APR, with football earning the distinction for the sixth-consecutive year. Named the 13th director of athletics in Clemson history on Dec. 1, 2012, Radakovich has continuously led the Tiger athletic department to high achievements both on the field and in the classroom while developing significant upgrades in finance and facilities. Following the 2014-15 academic year, Radakovich was named a finalist for the SportsBusiness Journal Athletics Director of the Year Award. Since his arrival in December 2013, the athletic department has received approvals for $176 million in facility improvements and increased spending on direct student-athlete development programs including nutrition, mental health and professional development by $2.4 million. His department has increased overall revenue from $69 million in fiscal year 2014 to a budgeted $99.7 million in FY17. In 2014-15, Clemson student-athletes posted the highest athletic department GPA in school history with a 3.02 cumulative average in the Fall semester, and its NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate of 91 percent ranked third nationally among public institutions. Three programs were recognized by the NCAA for having top 10 percent APR marks, including football earning the honor for the fifth-consecutive year.

2016 FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

The football program recorded its fourth-consecutive 10-win season and Clemson earned NCAA Tournament appearances in men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis, track and field, baseball, rowing and men’s golf. Additionally, the school won Atlantic Coast Conference titles in men’s soccer, women’s indoor track and women’s outdoor track. Radakovich came to Clemson with a wealth of experience after serving in significant athletic administrative roles at Miami (Fla.), Long Beach State, South Carolina and Louisiana State in addition to athletic directorships at American University and Georgia Tech. His administrative career spans over 26 years. College football entered a new era in 2014 with the College Football Playoff, and he was at the forefront. He was one of 13 people, including one of only five FBS directors of athletics, to be named to the committee. In 2012, he was named by NCAA President Mark Emmert as one of 10 directors of athletics to a new advisory commission charged with making recommendations for the future of NCAA rules and policies. In his first full year as director of athletics in 201314, Clemson had a strong all-around performance on the field and in the classroom. Clemson was one of just three programs nationally to win at least 11 football games, 23 men’s basketball games and 36 baseball games over the course of the academic year. Each of the Tiger sport programs exceeded the NCAA baseline standards for Academic Progress Rate, and six programs posted perfect 1000 single-year scores, including men’s and women’s cross country, diving, women’s soccer, women’s tennis and volleyball. Radakovich came to Clemson from Georgia Tech, where he served with distinction for six years (200612). Just Clemson’s fifth director of athletics since 1940, he replaced Terry Don Phillips, who retired after over 10 years directing the program. During his career at Georgia Tech, it had 51 teams advance to either NCAA Tourney play or bowl games in his six years. That includes five sports (football, women’s basketball, softball, women’s tennis, men’s golf) that made the postseason every year. The baseball program missed just once. A total of 11 different sports programs finished in the top 25 of at least one major poll 27 times. That includes a National Championship women’s tennis program in 2007, just its second team title in history. There were 14 ACC titles celebrated in addition to nine regular-season conference

or division titles. The football program played in a bowl game each year he was at Georgia Tech, including the 2010 Orange Bowl, the program’s first BCS-level bowl appearance since the 1967 Orange Bowl. On an individual basis, the program had 51 firstteam All-Americans in 10 sports, 30 academic AllAmericans, two national coach-of-the-year selections and two national player-of-the-year selections. The program had 13 ACC Coach-of-the-Year and 13 ACC Player-of-the-Year choices as well. The construction of new facilities or upgrades to existing ones was a focus of Radakovich’s tenure with the Yellow Jacket program. The John & Mary Brock Football Practice Facility, which opened in 2011, and McCamish Pavilion, which opened for basketball in 2012, are two of the top facilities of their kind in college athletics. Radakovich also initiated the Athletic Director’s Initiative Fund, started in 2006, which raised cash and pledges of more than $12 million. The Aliquippa, Pa., native was first made aware of Tiger athletics through the basketball exploits of Butch Zatezalo, who was from the same town. Zatezalo was a three-time All-ACC Tiger whose legendary 25-point scoring nights received a lot of attention in Pennsylvania in the 1960s when Radakovich was a youth. Prior to his tenure at Georgia Tech, Radakovich worked as a senior associate athletic director at Louisiana State from 2001-06. He had many responsibilities that dealt with the football program and worked closely with then Head Coach Nick Saban, including the year (2003) the Tigers won the National Championship. He became a director of athletics for the first time at American University in Washington, D.C. in 2000. Between 1994 and 2000, Radakovich served as chief financial officer at South Carolina. During that time, he worked with current Clemson football administrators Woody McCorvey and Brad Scott. He gained experience on the West Coast from 198994, when he was a senior associate athletic director at Long Beach State. He got his start in administration at Miami (Fla.) in 1983 as the athletic business manager. Radakovich is a 1980 graduate of Indiana (Pa.), where he earned a bachelor’s degree in finance. He was also a football letterman and student coach with the Crimson Hawk program. He was enshrined into the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame in 2008 and was recognized as a distinguished alumnus from Indiana (Pa.) in 2009. He earned his master’s degree in business administration from Miami (Fla.) in 1982. Radakovich, born June 9, 1958, and his wife, Marcie, have two sons, Christian, a 2012 Georgia Tech graduate, and Grant, a 2015 Mercer University graduate who joined the Clemson football program this summer.

ince its inception in 1991, the Department of Athletic Academic Services, located in Vickery Hall, has provided Clemson student-athletes a continued commitment to excellence in its pursuit of an elite college education. Vickery Hall has a staff of 18 full-time staff members, one graduate assistant and over 100 tutors, mentors and strategic tutors. In Vickery Hall, the mission is to address the total student-athlete by coaching our student-athletes to success in the academic, athletic and career arenas. Clemson University has a long-standing vision and commitment to the personal and academic growth and development of its student-athletes. That vision established Vickery Hall, which was the first stand-alone facility in the country constructed solely to provide academic support to student-athletes. The 27,000 square-foot, two-story, $3 million structure is an aesthetically impressive structure that provides premier academic support and services. Vickery Hall and its programs are dedicated to providing a holistic, educational experience by inspiring an environment of respect, integrity and excellence. Under the direction of the associate athletic director for athletic academic services, Steve Duzan, the staff guides and encourages each individual to reach his or her full potential as a student, athlete and citizen. As an original member of the NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills Program, Vickery Hall, in conjunction with the Department of Student-Athlete Development, provides opportunities and services to address the changing needs and skills of student-athletes during college, as well as after graduation. The program has a strong tradition of success and was selected for the FBS Athletic Director’s Association “Program of Excellence” Award, recognizing CHAMPS/ Life Skills excellence. The Vickery Hall staff is a major reason the Clemson football team is the only program in the nation to finish in the top 25 of both polls on the field and in the top 10 percent in terms of APR scores in the classroom each of the last five years. Clemson is one of only three FBS programs in the top 10 percent each of the last six years in terms of APR scores, joining Duke and Northwestern.

hen fans envision an indoor practice facility like the one that was completed for the Tiger football team in 2013, certain stereotypes come to mind. Common perceptions are largely simplistic in nature, and the idea that a facility that is solely for game preparation, out of the gaze of onlookers and carries a large amount of importance seems crazy. But the facility was never about football alone. In fact, the $10 million structure serves to unify the athletic department, while providing Tiger football with a cutting-edge structure that helps complete a nationallyrelevant program. On its face, the facility does exactly what it purports to do...provide a place for Head Coach Dabo Swinney to take his team in case of inclement weather without disrupting a schedule of events that is packed full on a daily basis. It equips the Tigers with a lavish place to

prepare for opponents in a game-like atmosphere. It houses an 80,000-square-foot practice area that includes a full field, which is surrounded by ample sideline space to provide a comfortable environment. In order to simulate a gameday experience, there is a fully-functional scoreboard inside the facility along with four play-clocks and a videoboard. High above the fields, on the second story of the nearly 70-foot structure, is a long coaches platform so that practice can be viewed from above. In addition, by way of a short corridor, the platform extends to the back side of the building, so that any drills taking place outside on the other two fields can be seen from the building. The indoor facility, which includes more than 5,000 square feet of support, will adjoin the new football operations complex — specifically the new weight room — when the project is completed.

C THE WESTZONE IS THE UNOFFICIAL ‘FRONT DOOR’ OF MEMORIAL STADIUM.

lemson has also taken advantage of the WestZone at Memorial Stadium, completed in 2009. It is 150,000 square feet, including a two-floor strength training facility (14,000 square feet), among the nation’s largest dedicated solely for football. The equipment room was expanded to include, among other items, new offices and a new laundry room that encompasses approximately 6,000 square feet of space. The football staff offices and meeting rooms are composed of approximately 4,000 square feet of existing space and more than 18,000 square feet of new space. The facility includes offices for the head coach, assistant coaches and support staff along with position meeting rooms and a 150-seat auditorium with a sloped floor and theater seating.

A

new era of Clemson football is officially underway. Head coach Dabo Swinney and director of athletics Dan Radakovich held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new football operations complex adjacent to the indoor practice facility in December 2015. In only a few short months, the 140,000 square foot facility has taken root on the west side of the indoor practice area, springing to life one of the nation’s premier complexes for football operations. The targeted completion for the $55 million project will be the winter of 2017. The complex will include all of the elements needed to run the day-to-day operation — locker room, training room, equipment room, weight room, meeting rooms, dining hall, recruiting center and coaches’ offices. The plans for the new facility include a dedicated space for player development, which is currently housed in a small area where associate athletic director Jeff Davis works in the WestZone. The uniqueness of the facility does not end there. Inside, the main lobby of the operations complex will house a replica of The Hill — complete with the Rock at the top — that will provide a significant boost in terms of recruiting visits. The complex will also utilize plenty of outdoor space, by incorporating the geography from the Seneca River and the surrounding area. One of the biggest advantages the new facility will offer is the chance to bring all of the program facets together in close proximity. “We’ve put our guys on trams year-round across the street, and there’s always a little bit of a disconnect when they’re over there and we’re in the WestZone in the summer,” said head coach Dabo Swinney. “This allows us to have a football operations center where it all happens — the practice, the indoor facility, everything. You’re with players and interacting with them all the time. “Then on gameday, when you walk in that locker room, it’s special. Seven days a year.”

THE INDOOR PRACTICE FACILITY IS ONE OF THE TOP FACILITIES OF ITS KIND NATIONALLY.

The training room, located on the north side of the home team’s locker room, was expanded to include a hydrotherapy room, offices and examination rooms. The training room is 6,200 square feet as well. Prior to the 2012 season, over 8,000 square feet of enclosed space was added on the second level, which houses “The Paw,” Clemson’s training table. In the summer of 2014, WestZone underwent further renovations, including refurbishing of the recruiting areas and added graphics. Moving all football operations to the WestZone has opened up space in the Jervey and McFadden Buildings for the other 18 sports to improve their facilities for recruiting and have more office, training, conditioning and sports medicine space. This has enhanced the performance of Clemson Athletics and its 19 sports programs, both on and off the field.

THE NEW OPERATIONS COMPLEX IS SLATED TO OPEN IN THE WINTER OF 2017.

CLEMSON’S NEW HOME WILL INCLUDE SOME OF THE TOP STUDENTATHLETE AMENITIES IN THE COUNTRY.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING JOEY BATSON IS IN HIS 20TH SEASON DIRECTING THE STRENGTH TRAINING EFFORTS FOR TIGER FOOTBALL.

A

significant aspect of Phase II of the WestZone project at Memorial Stadium was the construction of a new strength training facility on the first floor that is adjacent to the Clemson locker room and the Frank Howard Field playing sur-

face. For the first time, there is a strength training facility exclusively for the development of the Tiger football team. Director of Football Strength & Conditioning Joey Batson, who is in his 20th season at Clemson, makes sure that all Tiger gridders are ready to compete against the top teams in the nation. In his first 20 years in Tigertown, Clemson has played in 18 bowl games and he has coached 30 strength All-Americans on the gridiron. It is the fourth major facilities construction since he joined the football program, an example of his desire to keep Clemson at the forefront of strength training. The state-of-the-art facility has the best in all strength training equipment, not to mention the existence of a new sound system, nine flat-screen televisions and a nutrition station that gives Tiger football players a pleasant atmosphere to accomplish the most strenuous work. The strength training facility at Memorial Stadium actually has two floors. The first floor has all the freeweight equipment, including a dumbbell area, and the second floor has cardio equipment. Batson has an extensive staff of strength & conditioning assistants — veteran strength coaches Larry Greenlee, Paul Hogan and Adam Smotherman. In

Clemson’s Memorial Stadium has been held in high esteem for many years. Whether it be players from the 1940s and 1950s, opposing players from the 1970s and 1980s, or even professional players in the 1990s, the ambiance of this special setting is what college football is all about. And in 2013, BleacherReport.com rated Memorial Stadium as the third-best stadium in the nation. The storied edifice added to its legend when the first meeting of father and son head coaches (Bowden Bowl I) took place before a record crowd of more than 86,000 fans in 1999. Clemson has been in the top 20 in the nation in average attendance 34 straight seasons. A crowd has exceeded 80,000 fans 70 times since the 1983 season. In 2015, Clemson was 14th in the nation in average home attendance. The legend was further enhanced in 2014 when the Tigers had a perfect 7-0 record at home. Defending National Champions are 0-3 all-time at Memorial Stadium. Clemson had a 13-game winning streak at home from 2011 to 2012, setting a record for the facility. The Tigers were 26-2 in their 28 home games from 2011-14 as well. Clemson enters 2016 with a 16-game home winning streak, second in the nation behind the 21 by Florida State. The facility’s mystique is derived from its many traditions, which date to its opening in 1942, the legendary games and players, and Clemson’s corresponding rate of success. The Tigers have won 282 games in 74 years and have won over 73 percent of the contests (282-101-7).

The stadium has definitely been good to the Tigers, but it was constructed against the advice of at least one coach. Before Head Coach Jess Neely left for Rice after the 1939 season, he gave Clemson a message. “Don’t ever let them talk you into building a big stadium,” he said. “Put about 10,000 seats behind the YMCA. That’s all you’ll ever need.” Instead of following Neely’s advice, Clemson officials decided to build the new stadium in a valley on the western

part of campus. The place took some clearing, as there were many trees, but luckily there were no hedges. The crews went to work, clearing, cutting, pouring and forming. On Sept. 19, 1942, Memorial Stadium opened with Clemson defeating Presbyterian College 32-13. Those 20,000 seats installed for the opener would soon grow. When the original part of the stadium was built in the early 1940s, much of the work was done by scholarship athletes, including football players. The first staking out

MEMORIAL STADIUM DEATH VALLEY QUOTES “Running down the Hill is still talked about everywhere I go. Players who played against Clemson when I was in college remember us running down the Hill and thinking we would gain some type of spirit on the field. The adrenalin rush was unbelieveable for a Clemson player and quite a shock for the opponent on gameday.” Former Clemson All‑American Jerry Butler “I came here knowing it would be loud and Clemson would hit hard, but the noise was the biggest factor. I didn’t concentrate as well because of it.” Herschel Walker after his only regular-season loss “Howard’s Rock has strange powers. When you rub it and run down the Hill, your adrenaline flows. It is the most emotional experience I have ever had.” All‑American & six‑time All‑Pro Michael Dean Perry “When Clemson players rub that Rock and run down the Hill, it’s the most exciting 25 seconds in college football.” Brent Musburger, ABC Sports “Death Valley really lives up to its image. I was impressed with this stadium. When you put over 80,000 people in there, it feels like they are on top of you. I’d hate to be whoever comes here to play Clemson.” San Francisco quarterback Steve Young “Florida was loud in the swamp. But the loudest, not only stadium, but the loudest place I’ve ever been around in my life was Death Valley. I was yelling at the top of my lungs and I couldn’t hear what I was saying. That place was unreal in how loud it was. I don’t think I will ever be in a louder place.” Florida State quarterback Chris Rix “It’s been a long time ago, but that stadium strikes me as one of the loudest we broadcasted in. I’m not sure if it’s how the stadium is configured or just the crowd, but it is very difficult to hear anything ... very tough place to play.” Former broadcaster Ara Parseghian “The game when I was a sophomore (in 2005) stands out for me. What an awesome place that is to play. I’ll never forget that atmosphere, and I know for a fact I’ve never seen so much orange in one place. If you’ve never been there, going out on the field for the first time at Clemson is incredible.” Boston College quarterback Matt Ryan “We go to a lot of great venues for college football, but this doesn’t take a back seat to any place. In terms of the atmosphere, stadium, noise and facilities, this is a special place on a Saturday night.” ESPN commentator Todd Blackledge

of the stadium was done by two members of the football team, A.N. Cameron and Hugh Webb. Webb returned to Clemson years later to be an architecture professor and Cameron went on to become a civil engineer in Louisiana. The construction of Memorial Stadium did not proceed without problems. One afternoon during the clearing of the land, a young player proudly announced that he was not allergic to poison oak. He then proceeded to attack the poison oak with a swing blade, throwing the plants to and fro. The next day, the boy was swollen twice his size and was hospitalized. There are many other stories about the stadium, including one that Frank Howard put a chew of tobacco in each corner as the concrete poured. Howard said that the seeding of the grass caused a few problems. “About 40 people and I laid sod on the

field,” he said. “After three weeks on July 15, we had only gotten halfway through. “I told them that it had taken us three weeks to get that far and I would give them three more weeks’ pay for however long it took. I also told them we would have 50 gallons of ice cream when we got through. After that, it took them three days to do the rest of the field. Then we sat down in the middle of the field and ate up that whole 50 gallons.” Howard said that on the day of the first game in the stadium, “the gates were hung at 1 p.m. and we played at 2 p.m.” But that would be all of the construction for awhile. Then in 1958, 18,000 sideline seats were added, and in 1960, 5,658 West endzone seats were added in response to increasing attendance. With the large East endzone (“Green Grass” section), this expansion increased capacity to 53,000. Later, upper decks were added to each side of Memorial Stadium as crowds swelled - the first in 1978 and the second in 1983. It increased capacity to over 80,000, which makes it one of the nation’s largest on-campus stadiums. In 2006, the WestZone was added, an area that contains locker rooms and a luxury club level that holds over 1,000 seats. The effect that inflation has had can be dramatically seen in the differences in stadium construction. The original part of Memorial Stadium was built at a cost of only $125,000, or $6.25 per seat. Memorial Stadium’s newest upper deck was finished in 1983 at a cost of

$13.5 million, or $866 per seat. Through the years, Memorial Stadium has become known as “Death Valley.” It was tagged by the late Presbyterian College Coach Lonnie McMillian in the late 1940s. After bringing his teams to Clemson for years and getting whipped, he said the place was like “Death Valley.” A few years later, the name stuck. In 1974, the playing surface was named Frank Howard Field for the legendary coach because of his long service and dedication to Clemson University. Luckily, it wasn’t built behind the YMCA.

RUNNING DOWN THE HILL

W

hat has been described as “the most exciting 25 seconds in college football” from a color and pageantry standpoint actually started out as a matter-of-fact entrance, mainly because of necessity. The first 20,000 seats in Memorial Stadium were built and ready for use before the 1942 season, less than a year after Pearl Harbor was bombed and the United States was drawn into World War II. The shortest entry into Memorial Stadium was a short walk down Williamson Road from Fike Fieldhouse’s dressing rooms to a gate at the top of the Hill, located behind the East endzone. There were no dressing facilities inside the West endzone of Memorial Stadium...there was only a giant clock, where the hands turned, and a scoreboard that was operated by hand. The team would dress in Fike Fieldhouse, walk down Williamson Road, come in the gate underneath where the scoreboard now stands and jog down the Hill for its warmup exercises. There was no fanfare, no cannon shot fired, no Tiger Paw flag, no “Tiger Rag” played...just the team making its entrance and lining up to do the sidestraddle hop. That is the way things went for the next 25 years. Either in 1964 or 1965, Sam Jones, a member of the class of 1919, made a trip to California. He stopped at a spot in Death Valley, Calif. and picked up a white flint rock. He presented it to Head Coach Frank Howard as being from Death Valley, California to Death Valley, South Carolina. The rock laid on the floor in Howard’s office in Fike

Fieldhouse for years. One day, he was cleaning up his office and told Gene Willimon, who was executive secretary of IPTAY, to “take this rock and throw it over the fence or out in the ditch...do something with it, but get it out of my office!” Willimon did not think that was the way a rock should be treated. After all, it had been brought over 1,900 miles by a very sincere Tiger fan. By the mid-1960s, Memorial Stadium was living up to its moniker (“Death Valley”) because of the number of Tiger wins that had been recorded there. Actually, the name was first used by Lonnie McMillian, head coach at Presbyterian College during the 1940s. McMillian and the other Blue Hose coaches before him opened each season by playing at Clemson. Seldom scoring (24 shutouts in 39 games) and with only three wins and four ties to show for it, his teams were getting “killed” by the Tigers regularly. In 1948, McMillian made the comment to the press that he was taking his team to play Clemson in “Death Valley.” An occasional reference to Memorial Stadium by that name could be heard the next four years, but when Howard started calling it “Death Valley” in the 1950s, the name took off like wildfire. Clemson celebrated its 74th year in the “Valley” in 2015 with a 7-0 home record, one of 12 FBS schools with a perfect home record. But getting back to Howard’s Rock. It was mounted on a pedestal at the top of the Hill on the East side of the stadium. It was unveiled Sept. 24, 1966, when Clemson played Virginia. The Tigers trailed by 18 points with 17 minutes left and came back to win

40-35 on a 75-yard pass from Jimmy Addison to Jacky Jackson in the fourth quarter. That was quite a debut for the Rock.


RUNNING DOWN THE HILL

The team members started rubbing Howard’s Rock prior to running down the Hill on Sept. 23, 1967, a day when Clemson defeated Wake Forest by a score of 23-6.

Prior to running down the Hill, Howard told his players, “If you’re going to give me 110 percent, you can rub that Rock. If you’re not, keep your filthy hands off it!”

@ClemsonFB

Howard told of the incident the following day on his television show, and the story became legend. When Hootie Ingram succeeded Howard as head coach in 1970, he made the logical decision that the team would make its final entrance out of the new dressing room in the West endzone. In all home games during the 1970 and 1971 seasons and the first four games of 1972 when the Tigers did not run down the Hill, their combined record was 6-9. The seniors, led by Ben Anderson, decided they wanted to come down the Hill prior to the South Carolina contest, the finale of the 1972 season. The result, in a cold, freezing rain, was a 7-6 victory when Jimmy Williamson knocked down a two-point conversion attempt, which preserved the narrow win. Clemson has made the entrance every home game since 1942, except for the years mentioned above and the first game of 1973 (381 times entering 2016). After final warmups, the team gathers back in its dressing room under the West endzone stands for its final game instructions. Approximately 10 minutes prior to kickoff, the team boards three buses, rides around behind the North stands to the East endzone and disembarks to the top of the Hill behind Howard’s Rock. At the appointed time, the cannon booms, and led by a giant Tiger Paw flag carried by cheerleaders and Rally Cats, the band forms two lines for the team to run between and strikes up “Tiger Rag”...the frenzy starts in all sincerity and usually lasts for three hours. It is a tradition that has inspired Clemson players for many years. Yahoo! Sports agrees, as it rated it the best entrance in the nation in 2014.

1981 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM

@ClemsonFB

NOTES

• Clemson won its first national title in any sport and the first for the ACC in football in 28 years. • Clemson had five different players earn All-America honors, more than any other Tiger team in history. • There was no controversy concerning the voting of the National Champion in 1981. Clemson ended the season as the only undefeated, untied team and was the only team with three top-10 wins. • Head Coach Danny Ford (age 33 at the time) remains the youngest head coach in history to win the National Championship. • Clemson forced 41 turnovers in the 12 games, still a school record for turnovers forced in a season. • During one stretch in the season, the Clemson defense held the opposition without a touchdown for 18 consecutive quarters and no opponent scored a rushing touchdown against Clemson during the first seven games of the season. • Clemson won the national title in 1981 after going 6-5 the previous year. The Tigers were unranked in every preseason poll. • Clemson’s victory improvement of 5.5 games from 1980 to 1981 was the largest improvement in the nation. • Only one team (Wofford) had more time of possession in a game against Clemson all season. • Clemson had the lead at the end of the first quarter in only four of the 12 games. • Clemson scored 316 points during the regular season of 1981, the exact same total Georgia scored during its 11-game regular season of 1980, the year the Bulldogs won the National Championship. • Good health was a big reason for Clemson’s success in the 1981 season. Only five different starters missed any games during the entire season and no player missed more than two games all year. A collective total of only eight games were missed by five starters during the 1981 season.

CLIFF AUSTIN RUSHED FOR A TOUCHDOWN IN CLEMSON’S 22-15 VICTORY OVER NEBRASKA IN THE ORANGE BOWL.

• No opponent had a run longer than 26 yards and no opponent had a play over 30 yards. The longest touchdown play against Clemson was 25 yards, on a halfback option pass from Mike Rozier to Anthony Steels (Nebraska) in the Orange Bowl. • During offseason conditioning in the summer of 1981, Strength Coach George Dostal constructed a simple sign for his strength training facility...”1982 Orange Bowl, Clemson vs. Nebraska.” • The Clemson senior student who was in charge of pep rallies in 1981 was former CBS This Morning anchor Jane Robelot. • The day after Clemson defeated North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C., placekicker Donald Igwebuike flew to Maryland, where Clemson’s No. 3 ranked soccer team defeated Maryland 4-0 to clinch the ACC title. Igwebuike played on two ACC title teams that fall, both of which finished ranked in the top 10 in the nation.

THE SOPHOMORE QUARTERBACK LED THE TIGERS TO A NATIONAL RUNNER-UP FINISH AS THE FIRST-EVER HEISMAN TROPHY FINALIST IN CLEMSON FOOTBALL HISTORY.


@ClemsonFB

CLEMSON AMONG WINNINGEST TEAMS For the first time since 1981, Clemson tied for the lead in the nation in total victories. Clemson was the only undefeated team with a 14-0 record entering the National Championship game and that was the case in 1981 when Clemson won the National Championship. The Tigers finished 12-0 that year, with a victory in the Orange Bowl against Nebraska. In 2015 there were 29 teams with at least 10 wins, including eight who had at least 12 wins. Clemson and Alabama led the way at 14-1, while Houston was 13-1. Ohio State finished with a 12-1 mark, while Iowa, Michigan State, Western Kentucky and Stanford were all 12-2. In 1981 there were only nine schools with at least 10 wins, led by Clemson’s 12-0 record. Pittsburgh finished 11-1 behind Dan Marino and BYU posted an 11-2 mark. Texas finished second in the polls that year with a 10-1-1 mark. SMU was on probation and finished 10-1. Penn State, Georgia, North Carolina and Washington all finished with 10-2 records. The 14-win mark was first reached in 1996 when BYU finished with a 14-1 record. The Cougars played an exempt game in August, played a game in Hawaii, which does not count towards maximum games played, and played in a bowl game in addition to the other 12 regular season games. Clemson tied the ACC mark with 14 wins, as Florida State had a 14-0 record in 2013.

CLEMSON ATOP EVERY CFP POLL IN 2015

Clemson was ranked No. 1 in the nation in all three polls entering the bowl season. It was the fourth straight week Clemson was No. 1 in all four. Clemson was No. 1 in all six of the College Football Playoff polls this year, No. 1 by AP the last five weeks and No. 1 by USA Today the last four. Clemson began the year at No. 12 in the AP and USA Today Coaches polls. Clemson finished No. 2 after the 45-40 National Championship loss to Alabama in Phoenix. It is the second highest final ranking for the program.

CLEMSON HAD 17-GAME WINNING STREAK

Clemson had a 17-game winning streak snapped with the 4540 loss to Alabama in the 2015 National Championship game. It was the longest streak in school history and was the longest active streak in college football by six games before Alabama defeated the Tigers. Clemson had gone from November 15, 2014 at Georgia Tech, a 28-6 defeat in Atlanta, to the National Championship game of Jan. 11, 2016 without suffering a loss. Over Clemson’s 17-game winning streak the Tigers outscored the opposition 640-303, an average victory margin of 19.8 points per game. Clemson averaged 37.65 points per game during the winning streak and gave up 17.8. In terms of total offense, Clemson averaged 494 yards a game and gave up 294, an average total offense margin of +200 yards per game. Clemson averaged 277 yards passing and 217 yards rushing during that 17-game streak. The opposition averaged 175 passing and 119 rushing. So, Clemson had nearly a 100-yard margin in both categories over the streak. Here are some other quick notes on the streak: • 13 wins by at least double figures • Seven wins by at least 20 points • 11 games with at least 500 yards total offense, including 10 in a row • Seven games with at least 300 yards passing • 13 games with at least 200 yards rushing • Nine games with at least 200 yards rushing and 200 yards passing, including six of last seven. • Clemson did not trail in the fourth quarter in any of the 17 games and was tied in just one game (FSU 2015).

CLEMSON RECORDS FIRST 8-0 ACC SEASON Clemson finished the ACC season with an 8-0 regular season record. It was the first 8-0 ACC season in Clemson history. Clemson has been an undefeated ACC Champion now five times, 1967, 1978, 1981, 1982 and 2015. All four of the previous years the Tigers were just 6-0. In 1983, the first year Georgia Tech was in the league, Clemson was 7-0 vs. ACC teams, but the Tigers were on probation that year and could not claim a championship. The ACC has now had four 8-0 champions in the last six years,

Virginia Tech in 2010 and Florida State in 2013 and 2014. But, every ACC Champion had at least one loss from 2001-09. Clemson was actually 9-0 vs. ACC teams in 2015 as the Tigers defeated North Carolina in the ACC Championship game.

CLEMSON HAS NINTH-LONGEST BOWL STREAK Clemson has been to a bowl game every year since 2005, or a streak of 11 consecutive years. That is tied for the ninth longest streak in the nation. The streak began when Clemson beat Colorado in the Champs Sports Bowl. The last year Clemson did not go to a bowl was 2004 and the Tigers were bowl eligible that year. So, Clemson has a streak of 17 consecutive years of bowl eligibility. The ACC is well represented on the chart below. Florida State has the longest streak at 34 years, Virginia Tech is second at 23 years in a row. Longest Active FBS Bowl Streaks Rk School Years 1. Florida State 1982-15 2. Virginia Tech 1993-15 3.

11 STRAIGHT GAMES WITH 500+ YARDS TOTAL OFFENSE Clemson has a school record 11 consecutive games of at least 500 yards of total offense. The previous mark was five in a row set in 2012. That includes a pair of 600 yard games in the streak, 623 at NC State and 608 against North Carolina in the ACC Championship game. Over the last 11 games Clemson averaged 555 yards per contest, 242 rushing and 312 passing. Clemson has had at least 200 yards passing and 200 yards rushing in six of its last eight games. Clemson has never lost a game in its history when rushing and throwing for at least 200 yards (75-0-1).

ATTENDANCE RECORD SET Clemson established a school record in terms of average home attendance and total overall attendance for games home, away and neutral in 2015. All seven Clemson home games were sold out and the Tigers drew 588,266 fans for the seven home games, an average of 84,038, a school record. The high crowd for the year was 85,573 for the Florida State game. The Notre Dame game, which was played in torrential rain,

CLEMSON WINS 15TH ACC TITLE IN 2015 Clemson won its 15th ACC championship on December 5, 2015 with a 45-37 victory over North Carolina. It was Clemson’s second ACC title in the last five years and it tied the Tigers with Florida State for the most ACC titles all time. Both of Clemson’s league titles under Dabo Swinney have taken place in Charlotte. Clemson now has 21 conference championships overall. The Tigers won the 1900, 1902 and 1903 SIAA Conference championship under John Heisman, then the 1906 SIAA title under Bob Williams, and won the 1940 and 1948 Southern Conference titles under Frank Howard.

OFFENSE WAS BALANCED IN 2015 One of the reasons for Clemson’s success in 2015 was its balanced offense. Clemson ranked in the top 25 in the nation in 14 different categories last year, including the four major categories of scoring offense, total offense, rushing offense and passing offense. Clemson was seventh in completion percentage, eighth in first downs/game, 13th in third down conversion percentage and ninth in total touchdowns scored. The Tigers had 35 touchdown passes and 34 touchdown runs. Clemson ran 1207 plays, most in the nation and had exactly 100 plays of 20 yards or more, second in the nation. Clemson’s 71 total touchdowns, 514.5 yards per game, 1207 plays, 393 first downs, 100 plays of 20 yards or more and 7718 yards of total offense were all school records for a season.

OFFENSE AMONG NATION’S BEST IN 2015 With a new co-coordinator system, Clemson had its best offense in history in some areas during the 2015 season. Cocoordinators and former Clemson teammates Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott were wide receivers together at Clemson from 2000-02 and they joined forces to lead the Clemson offense to 51.4.5 yards per game, an all-time school record. That season long performance included a school record 12 games with at least 500 yards, including a streak of 11 straight 500-yard games to end the season. Clemson was successful against the top teams as well. The Tigers had 532 yards against Boston College’s No. 1 total defense and 550 against Alabama’s No. 3 ranked total defense. The unit had incredible balance as the Tigers had 35 touchdowns passing and 34 touchdowns rushing. Eight times they had at least 200 yards rushing and 200 yards passing in the same game, most in one season. The Tigers averaged 223 yards rushing and 291 yards passing per game. Clemson also became the first ACC school to have at least 3,000 yards rushing and 4,000 yards passing in the same season. Clemson was the only school in the nation to do it in 2015 and just the ninth team to do it in FBS history.

TIGERS AMONG NATIONAL LEADERS IN 2015 Clemson was among the best in the nation when it came to performance on both sides of the ball. The Tigers finished 11th in the nation in total offense with 514.5 yards per game and 10th in total defense at 313.0 yards per game allowed. Clemson was the only school in the nation to finish in the top dozen in both areas. Clemson was also in the top 25 in scoring offense and defense, rushing offense and defense, passing offense and defense, passing efficiency offense and defense, first downs/ game, completion percentage, sacks and third down conversions.

NOTES

Clemson had 10 first team selections, three second-team and four third-team selections in 2015. (We use the highest ranking team for each player.) The 10 first-team selections tied the record for first team selections in one year set by the 1978 team. The 1989 and 1991 Clemson teams also had nine first team selections. In terms of returning players who made any All-ACC team, Clemson has a record 11 players returning from 2015. The previous high was nine returning All-ACC players for the 1990 season off the 1989 team. This year’s 11 returning All-ACC players includes six first-team selections, two second-team and three third-team. It is the most returning first team selections since 1990 when Clemson had six returning first teamers off the 1989 team. The 1978 team had six returning first-team All-ACC players from the 1977 season. Clemson actually has 12 returning All-ACC players overall because Mike Williams was a second-team receiver during the 2014 season, but missed last year due to injury. Clemson has eight offensive returning players who made an All-ACC team previously in their Clemson careers and three on defense. Kicker Greg Huegel is the 12th.

2015 FRESHMAN ALL-AMERICANS Mitch Hyatt, Christian Wilkins, Deon Cain, and Greg Huegel were all named to Freshman All-America teams in 2015. Hyatt was named first-team by all six services that named a team. That list included the Football Writers Association, Scout.com, Sporting News, Campusinsiders.com, ESPN.com and USA Today. Wilkins was named first-team freshman All-American by the Football Writers, Scout.com and Sporting News. Hyatt started every game at left tackle for Clemson’s 14-1 team that finished No. 2 in the nation in 2015 and played for the National Championship. He played 1,049 snaps for the year, more than any other freshman at any position in Clemson history. He was named ACC offensive Lineman of the Week in Clemson’s win over Florida State, the first true freshman in Clemson history to win offensive lineman of the week. He was a third-team All-ACC selection by both the coaches and the media, the first Clemson freshman lineman to make an All-ACC team. Wilkins led Clemson’s interior defense in tackles this year with 84, including 4.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. He had a season high 10 tackles in Clemson’s win at Louisville in the third game of the season. His most famous play took place in the Orange Bowl against Oklahoma when he caught a 31-yard pass on a fake punt by Andy Teasdall. Cain was named to ESPN’s True Freshman All-America team. The native of Florida had 34 catches for 582 yards and five touchdowns. His 17.1 yards per catch figure led the team and he was third on the team in reception yardage.

@ClemsonFB

Huegel led the nation in total field goals made with 27 in 32 attempts. He scored a Clemson record 138 points and was 17-17 on field goals in ACC games, the best percentage in the nation in conference play. He made 16 consecutive field goals at one point, second longest streak in Clemson history. The freshman kicker was named a second-team All-American by Si.com, the first Clemson walk-on in history to earn All-America honors while still a walk-on.

SIX TIGERS NAMED TO ALL-AMERICA TEAMS A record six Clemson football players were named to various first, second or third-team All-America squads in 2015. The previous record for selections to All-America first, second or third teams was five set by Clemson’s 1981 National Championship team.

NINE NEW STARTING LINEMEN Clemson achieved a No. 1 national ranking entering the 2015 National Championship game with a combined zero returning starters in the offensive and defensive lines from the previous season. Has a team ever reached No. 1 ranked status with such inexperience in the lines? We haven’t found one. Clemson had one returning starter in the offensive line when the season started. That was two-year starter Ryan Norton at center, but he suffered a knee injury in the second game of the year and played just 96 snaps all year in five games. A look to the chart below shows that the starting offensive line for the 2015 Tigers had a combined six starts entering the year. The defensive line also had six career starts entering the year. But, key reserves from previous years stepped up when given the opportunity and as a result Clemson was ranked in the top 25 in the nation in total offense, total defense, scoring offense and scoring defense. Incredibly, eight of the nine made an All-ACC team in 2015. 2015 Clemson Starting Linemen Pos Name LT Mitch Hyatt, 3rd team All-ACC LG Eric Mac Lain, 1st Team All-ACC C Jay Guillermo, 2nd Team All-ACC RG Tyrone Crowder, 3rd Team All-ACC RT Joe Gore, 3rd Team All-ACC Total OL Experience

RECORD NUMBER OF ALL-ACC PLAYERS BACK

Clemson had a record 17 players named first, second or third team All-ACC by the ACC media and the ACC Coaches last year. It was the most All-ACC players in one year in school history by a large margin. The previous record was 12, set in 1989 when Danny Ford’s last team had nine first-team selections and three second-team choices, and in 1990 when Clemson had eight firstteam and four second-team.

SWINNEY RECORDS 15TH TOP 25 WIN Dabo Swinney is 15-17 against top 25 teams as Clemson head coach, including a 9-5 record against top 10 teams. He beat three top 10 teams in Notre Dame, North Carolina and Oklahoma in 2015 and lost to Alabama. Clemson also beat a 17th-ranked Florida State team in 2015. The Oklahoma victory was Swinney’s 15th against a top 25 team and he is now in second place in Clemson history in career top 25 wins.Tommy Bowden had 13 wins during his career from 1999-2008. He was 13-23 against top 25 teams. Danny Ford has the record with 20 wins over top 25 teams in his Clemson coaching career from 1978-89. Ford was 20-12-1 against top 25 teams in his Clemson coaching career.

SWINNEY FOURTH IN ACC HISTORY IN WINNING % Dabo Swinney is fourth in ACC in winning percentage with a .735 mark. He is 75-27 so far in his Clemson career.

Next on the list is Danny Ford, who won .760 of his games for Clemson between 1978-89. Jimbo Fisher, Florida State’s head coach, is first on the list with a .829 percentage.

GALLMAN SET RUSHING RECORD IN 2015 Clemson running back Wayne Gallman established the Clemson record for rushing yards in a season last year with 1527. It was one of many standards set by the sophomore running back from Grayson, Ga. In addition to the rushing yardage mark, he also set the record for most 100-yard rushing games with nine. He had three separate streaks of three 100-yard games in succession. Gallman broke one other record of note with 1,740 yards from

scrimmage. That is the summation of yards rushing and receiving. Gallman had 1527 rushing and 213 receiving. He broke the record of 1715 that had been set by C.J. Spiller in 2009. He had 1212 rushing and 503 receiving. Spiller still has the per game record as he played 14 games that year. Gallman enters his junior year with 2,296 rushing yards on 444 attempts, a 5.17 average. He is 12th on the Clemson all-time rushing list, quite an accomplishment in just two seasons. His 5.17 yards per carry average is also 12th. Gallman needs 1670 rushing yards in 2016 to break Raymond Priester’s record of 3,966 set between 1994-97.

HUEGEL LED NATION IN FIELD GOALS IN 2015 Clemson freshman walk-on Greg Huegel led the nation in total field goals made in 2015 with 27. It was also a Clemson single season mark. He also established the school mark for points in a season with 138, breaking a record that was held by C.J. Spiller. Huegel was 18-19 in nine games against Atlantic Coast Conference foes, and that .947 percentage was second best in the nation against conferences teams. He was 17-17 against the ACC in the regular season. He also led the nation in total field goals against top 25 teams with 10 and led the nation in points scored by kicking. Huegel was also fifth in total points scored among all players. Some of the players ahead of him were Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry of Alabama, and Keenan Reynolds of Navy. He was tied with Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott and LSU running back Leonard Fournette.

LEGGETT CHALLENGING TIGHT END RECORDS All-American tight end Jordan Leggett finished the 2015 season with 40 receptions for 525 yards and eight scores. His eight touchdowns tied a Clemson season record for a tight end. The Mackey Award finalist did establish one record as he had at least one touchdown reception in five consecutive games, a record for a Clemson tight end. He added a score in the ACC Championship game against North Carolina, and scored Clemson’s last touchdown of the year against Alabama.

CLEMSON 49 SEPTEMBER 5, 2015 MEMORIAL STADIUM • CLEMSON, S.C.

The No. 12 Clemson Tigers improved to 7-0 in home openers under head coach Dabo Swinney with a convincing 49-10 win over Wofford. Clemson racked up 533 yards, with 222 on the ground and 311 through the air. The Tigers came out quickly, with sophomore quarterback Deshaun Watson leading an 11-play, 75-yard drive culminating with a four-yard touchdown reception by Mike Williams. During the touchdown completion, Williams hit his head against the goalpost in the east endzone. Williams suffered a neck injury and missed the rest of the 2015 season. Behind Watson's direction, Clemson scored on five of its first seven drives, building a 35-0 lead over the outmatched Terriers. The signal-caller finished 18-22 passing for 194 yards and two touchdowns, while Wayne Gallman led the rushing attack with 94 yards. Defensively, Brent Venables' unit picked up where it left off from the 2014 season, amassing three-and-outs on each of Wofford's first six possessions.

A second-quarter flurry proved to be all the No. 12 Clemson Tigers needed to defeat Appalachian State, 4110, in front its second-straight sellout crowd at Memorial Stadium. Deshaun Watson was 19-26 for 248 yards and three touchdowns. Wayne Gallman led the Tigers’ ground game with 79 of the team’s 140 rushing yards. Charone Peake led the way with two receiving touchdowns. Defensively, Shaq Lawson had three tackles for loss. The Tigers added three interceptions that completely changed the momentum, part of four takeaways for Clemson. Clemson’s defense was stout, holding Appalachian State to 298 total yards, including only 95 passing yards. After a slow first quarter, defensive tackle Carlos Watkins intercepted a quick pass over the middle by Taylor Lamb and returned it into the endzone to score the Tigers’ first touchdown. Watkins’ first career touchdown lit a fire under Clemson and started a scoring streak for the Tigers, who reeled off 35 consecutive points.

GAME RECAPS CLEMSON 20 LOUISVILLE 17 SEPTEMBER 17, 2015 PAPA JOHN'S CARDINAL STADIUM • LOUISVILLE, KY.

Ninth-ranked Clemson outlasted Louisville, 20-17, in front of 55,396 fans, the third-largest crowd in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium history. The win was the program’s 30th straight victory over an unranked opponent. Clemson’s defense was outstanding all night, allowing just 272 yards of total offense. The other story of the game was running back Wayne Gallman, who carried 24 times for 139 yards. He helped offset a pair of interceptions thrown by Deshaun Watson, who ended the night 21-30 for 199 yards. Watson added 54 on the ground. The defensive struggle was uncorked momentarily after the completion of the first quarter, when Watson found a streaking Hunter Renfrow wide open for his first career touchdown. The redshirt freshman caught the 32-yard strike to put the Tigers ahead, 7-0. The Cards cut the deficit just before the break when John Wallace connected on a 26-yard field goal. Louisville took its first lead on a Jeremy Smith oneyard plunge in the third quarter. The Tigers responded, posting 13 consecutive points that included a Jordan Leggett touchdown. His score combined with two Greg Huegel field goals to make it 20-10. The Tigers allowed a 100-yard kickoff return that gave the Cardinals life with 9:41 to play. Louisville had two chances late, but Kevin Dodd’s eight-yard sack erased it and Louisville’s final throw was intercepted.

CLEMSON 24 OCTOBER 3, 2015 MEMORIAL STADIUM • CLEMSON, S.C.

Clemson battled sixth-ranked Notre Dame through torrential rains from Hurricane Joaquin under the lights. But the wet weather did not hold the Tigers back in a hard-fought 24-22 victory. Deshaun Watson led the Tigers to an explosive start, connecting with Jordan Leggett in the endzone on the first drive. Clemson took an early 14-0 lead with another Watson touchdown, this time a 13-yarder to Artavis Scott. The remainder of the first half proved uneventful, but Watson came out to re-ignite the offense in the second half, running in a touchdown to put the Tigers up 21-3 early in the third quarter. Trailing 21-3, Notre Dame refused to give in and made the game a tense one over the final 15 minutes. In three consecutive crucial moments for the Tiger defense in the fourth quarter, Clemson came away with a pair of recovered fumbles and ultimately survived on a two-point conversion stand with seven seconds remaining. The Fighting Irish had pulled within two at 24-22 on a touchdown by Torii Hunter Jr., but Deshone Kizer’s designed quarterback run was stuffed by Carlos Watkins and Kevin Dodd, and Clemson survived the furious rally. Watson accounted for three scores, while rushing for 93 yards. Wayne Gallman continued his strong start, with 23 carries for 111 yards.

The No. 6 Clemson Tigers battled rain for a second consecutive week, but earned a similar result. Clemson jumped out to a big lead early, and easily defeated Georgia Tech 43-24 at Memorial Stadium. Clemson’s offense rolled to 537 yards of total offense against Georgia Tech and was led by Wayne Gallman on the ground, who finished with 13 carries for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Gallman provided an instant spark, as he took a handoff and burst into the open field for a 66-yard touchdown run on the third play from scrimmage. Gallman did not stop there, as he scored his second touchdown on a one-yard run late in the first quarter to cap off a 10-play, 80-yard drive that put the Tigers ahead 17-3. The tide turned for Clemson yet again, as safety Jadar Johnson blocked a punt on special teams deep in Georgia Tech territory that resulted in a safety to give the Tigers a 19-3 lead.

The Clemson offense was again on full display as the No. 5 Tigers downed the Boston College Eagles 34-17. The win extended the Tigers’ home winning streak to 14 to set a school record. It was also Clemson’s 34th straight win over an unranked opponent. Deshaun Watson passed for 420 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for another as the Tigers overcame the nation’s No. 1 defense. Sophomore wide receiver Artavis Scott finished with 10 receptions for 162 yards and a touchdown. The Tigers paved their way through the air against a stout Eagles secondary, as nine different Tigers caught a pass. Senior running back Zac Brooks had another solid game for the Tigers, as he hauled in a 21-yard touchdown pass on fourth down midway through the second quarter to push the Tigers ahead 17-7. Clemson’s ability to break down a defense and put up yards in a hurry broke through in the second half when Watson connected with Scott on a 51-yard touchdown pass to cap off a six-play, 98-yard drive to increase the Tigers’ lead to 27-10. Freshman wide receiver Deon Cain had a career-high 97 receiving yards, which included a 67-yard catch.

The sixth-ranked Clemson Tigers tied the program record for victory margin in an ACC game after defeating Miami by a score of 58-0 in Sun Life Stadium. The Tigers led 42-0 at halftime, and never looked back in moving to 7-0 (4-0 in the ACC) on the season. Wayne Gallman and Deshaun Watson led a heavy rushing attack, as the Tigers accumulated a season-high 416 yards, their highest rushing total since 2000. Watson watched comfortably from the bench in the third quarter after the lead reached 45-0. He threw for a touchdown and scored one with his feet. The Tigers jumped out to a quick 21-0 lead in the opening quarter behind a fluid offense and suffocating defense. Watson threw a 34-yard touchdown to Jordan Leggett on the opening drive. Watson set the Tigers up for a second score after unleashing a career-long 63-yard run that led to Gallman scoring from five yards out. The Tigers posted 21 more points in the second frame. It culminated when Watson scampered in from six yards out, and then Cordrea Tankersley picked off the next offensive play by the ‘Canes to make it 42-0.

The top-ranked Clemson Tigers overcame a first-half deficit to defeat No. 15 Florida State 23-13. Clemson overcame its first halftime deficit since 2014 to capture the ACC Atlantic Division title for the first time since 2011 and improved to 9-0 on the season. A low-scoring first half left the Tigers looking for a change in fortune heading into the second. The offense got what they were looking for early in the third quarter with a touchdown pass from Deshaun Watson to Deon Cain to put the Tigers on top 13-10. Watson completed 28 passes and rushed for 107 yards. The Tiger defense came out to make a statement after halftime adjustments, forcing two turnovers and one sack. Their efforts allowed the offense to come in and capitalize, pulling away from a 13-13 tie score thanks to Greg Huegel’s third field goal of the game with 7:23 left in the fourth quarter. In a crucial moment, Ben Boulware and Shaq Lawson made a stop on fourth-and-one, allowing the offense to take over on the Seminole 40. Watson then made crucial plays on consecutive third downs with completions to Charone Peake, who converted both for first downs. The offense capped off its drive with a 25-yard rushing touchdown by Wayne Gallman to seal the win.

SYRACUSE 27 NOVEMBER 14, 2015 CARRIER DOME • SYRACUSE, N.Y.

A wild first five minutes set the tone for a back and forth affair inside the Carrier Dome, but at the end of the day Clemson emerged victorious over Syracuse, 37-27. The win moved the No. 1 Tigers to 10-0 on the season, giving the program their fifth consecutive 10-win season. Deshaun Watson was once again brilliant for the Tigers, accounting for 473 yards of total offense. The sophomore signal-caller threw for 368 and rushed for 105, while tossing two touchdowns and adding a third on the ground. His favorite target was Charone Peake, who had a career-high 120 yards on seven grabs. Clemson got off to a fast start on the first play from scrimmage, when Watson threw a 64-yard strike to Peake. That put the Tigers inside the 10-yard-line of the Orange, and Gallman dashed in on the next play to open the scoring. Watson made it 14-0 with a quarterback keeper, but a pair of fumbles erased the good vibes, as Syracuse knotted the game at 14 apiece. Watson settled the Tigers again, throwing touchdowns to Peake and freshman Deon Cain to help Clemson push ahead 31-17 at halftime.

Top-ranked Clemson defeated Wake Forest 33-13, moving the Tigers to 11-0 for the first time since 1981. Clemson finished the ACC regular season with an 8-0 record for the first time in school history. The Tiger defense was strong throughout the contest, yielding only 152 total yards. Ben Boulware finished with 2.5 tackles for loss, despite playing only 18 snaps due to a shoulder stinger. Deshaun Watson ignited the offense by completing 24-35 passes with four touchdowns in the first half. The offense totaled 552 yards. Deon Cain joined Sammy Watkins in becoming the second first-year freshman in Clemson history to record a touchdown catch in four consecutive games. After an electric first half, the Tigers took a more relaxed approach in the second half, allowing more of their players to see action on the field. Clemson played without injured starters Wayne Gallman and Mackensie Alexander. Freshman quarterback Kelly Bryant led the Tigers with 58 rushing yards, while Adrian Baker earned the start and tallied four tackles in Alexander’s stead.

GAME RECAPS CLEMSON 37 SOUTH CAROLINA 32 NOVEMBER 28, 2015 WILLIAMS-BRICE STADIUM • COLUMBIA, S.C.

A sluggish start gave way to a flurry of points in Clemson’s 37-32 win at South Carolina, with Deshaun Watson completing 20-27 passes for 279 yards and rushing for an additional 114. The victory clinched an undefeated regular season. Watson was responsible for four of Clemson’s five touchdowns, as he rushed for three scores and threw for one more. Fellow sophomore Wayne Gallman added 102 yards on the ground and freshman Deon Cain caught five passes for 96 yards and a 55-yard touchdown. After a scoreless first-quarter, Watson scored on a five-yard plunge and found Cain for the 55-yard strike to put the Tigers on the board. Clemson led 14-3 at intermission and 28-10 two possessions into the third, but the Gamecocks closed the deficit to only three early in the final quarter by capitalizing on the Tigers’ third lost fumble of the day. With momentum clearly residing on the home team sideline, Watson led a 10-play, 60-yard drive and finished it off with his third rushing touchdown of the day to extend the lead to 34-25.

CLEMSON 45 DECEMBER 5, 2015 (ACC Championship) BANK OF AMERICA STADIUM • CHARLOTTE, N.C.

The top-ranked Clemson Tigers gave an ACC Championship Game record crowd of 74,514 a show at Bank of America Stadium. Behind the dual-threat capabilities of quarterback Deshaun Watson, the Tigers won 45-37 and secured the program’s 15th ACC Championship. The lead held at 12 midway through the fourth quarter when defensive end Shaq Lawson came up with a huge forced fumble and sack that gave the Tigers possession. After tacking on a field goal, Clemson had to hang on late and recover an onside kick after the Tar Heels cut the deficit to eight points. Watson was masterful and was named the Most Valuable Player after totaling 420 yards of total offense, an ACC Championship Game record. He accounted for five touchdowns, three through the air and two on the ground. Wayne Gallman rushed for 187 yards. The Tigers amassed 608 yards of total offense and 33 first downs Saturday. The Tigers rushed for 319 and passed for 289. Defensively, the Tigers limited UNC’s high-octane passing attack to just 12-35 completions.

OKLAHOMA 17 CLEMSON 37 DECEMBER 31, 2015 (Orange Bowl) SUN LIFE STADIUM • MIAMI GARDENS, FLA.

Clemson outscored Oklahoma 21-0 in the second half and defeated the Sooners 37-17 in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla. With the win, the No. 1 Tigers advanced to the National Championship Game against No. 2 Alabama. The two teams traded scores in the first half and the Sooners took a 17-16 lead at intermission. Clemson gained 305 yards of total offense in the first half, but still trailed by a point. But it was all Clemson in the second half as the Tigers shut out the high-scoring Sooners, who had won seven straight entering the contest. Clemson’s ground game was dominant, as Wayne Gallman finished with 150 rushing yards and Deshaun Watson added 145. It was the first time in history Clemson had a pair of 140-yard rushers in the same game. Hunter Renfrow’s 35-yard touchdown reception gave Clemson a 30-17 lead and momentum. Clemson’s defense forced two turnovers in the second half, interceptions by starting linebackers B.J. Goodson and Ben Boulware, who was named Defensive MVP.

GAME RECAPS ALABAMA 45 CLEMSON 40 JANUARY 11, 2016 (CFP National Championship) UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX STADIUM • GLENDALE, ARIZ.

Clemson fought hard and held a fourth-quarter lead, but late special teams plays by Alabama were the difference in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game as the Crimson Tide prevailed, 45-40. Deshaun Watson was brilliant in defeat, accounting for a career-high 478 yards of total offense and four touchdowns through the air. The sophomore signal-caller finished in fine fashion, becoming the first quarterback in FBS history with at least 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season. Hunter Renfrow was the recipient of two Watson touchdown passes, while Kevin Dodd was a bright spot defensively with a career-high five tackles for loss. The Tigers lost for the first time in their history when producing at least 500 yards of total offense. Clemson finished with 550 yards to Alabama’s 473, but the Crimson Tide scored on a kickoff return for touchdown in the fourth quarter that provided momentum. Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry finished with 36 carries for 158 yards for the Tide.
