WINNING SEASONS THE NORM

• The Tigers have had a winning record every year since 1965.

• Clemson’s 55-year streak is the third-longest active streak in the nation, trailing two ACC schools (Florida State 72, Miami (Fla.) 62).

• Clemson has had a non-losing record, which includes seasons with equal number of wins and losses, every season since 1958.

• Bill Wilhelm took over as head coach of the Clemson program in 1958, therefore the Tigers have not had a losing record since he took over.

• Clemson’s 62-year streak of non-losing records is tied for the second-longest active streak in the nation, trailing only Florida State (72).
