November 11, 2018

With Clemson's 27-7 win over Boston College...

  • Clemson won the ACC Atlantic crown for the fourth consecutive season to become the first team since the formation of the conference's divisions to win four straight division titles.
  • With the division title, Clemson will appear in the ACC Championship Game for the sixth time, the most of any ACC Atlantic program. In doing so, it will tie Virginia Tech for the most ACC Championship Game appearances in either division.
  • Overall, the division title is Clemson’s seventh, including a co-championship in 2012 in which the Tigers did not appear in the ACC Championship Game.

  • Clemson opened a season 10-0 for the fourth time in program history, joining 10-0 starts in 1948, 1981 and 2015. Including ties, it is Clemson's fifth undefeated start through 10 games, including a 9-0-1 season in 1950.
  • Clemson won the first 10 games of a season for the second time under Head Coach Dabo Swinney (2015). Swinney became the first coach in Clemson history to coach the school to multiple 10-0 starts, as legendary coaches Frank Howard and Danny Ford only accomplished the feat once each, in 1948 and 1981, respectively.
  • Clemson has now won 10 games for an eighth consecutive year, adding to its current school-record streak. In pushing the streak of 10-win seasons to eight, Clemson tied Miami (1985-92) and Virginia Tech (2004-11) for the fourth-longest streak of 10-win seasons in FBS history.
  • Clemson’s 10 wins this season are tied for the ninth-most wins in a season in team history.
  • Clemson won its 50th game in the last four years to tie the 2018 senior class with the 2017 senior class for the most wins in school history. It also tied that group for the most wins of any class in ACC history.
