The Storylines

The No. 1 Tigers enter the season riding high after a second national title in three seasons. If Clemson can win its first six home games they would tie the program record for the longest home winning streak (21 from 2013-16). If they win their seventh home game they would set a new mark with 22 consecutive home wins. 

Interestingly, Clemson hosts home games against head coaches who enter 2019 a combined 1-6 at Memorial Stadium in their careers (Geoff Collins, 0-0; Jimbo Fisher, 1-3; Will Healy, 0-0; Willie Taggart, 0-0; Scott Satterfield, 0-1; Josh Conklin, 0-0; Dave Clawson, 0-2). 

There are no guarantees in football, but it feels like the home winning streak might be in jeopardy this year.

In addition, Clemson will honor its 2018 national championship victory by unveiling championship signage on the south side of Memorial Stadium prior to the game.

Clemson enters the 2019 season ranked No. 1 in both the Associated Press preseason poll and the USA Today preseason coaches poll. It marks the first time in history that Clemson will enter a season bearing that distinction in either poll.

"Somebody asked me at Media Day, 'Oh man, how are you all going to handle it now? Y'all are the hunted.' I'm like, 'That's business as usual,'" Head Coach Dabo Swinney said. "We've had eight 10+ win seasons in a row. Every time we show up to play, that other team wants to beat us. That's not anything new this year."

Though a new season and a new team is at hand, a number of Clemson players will attempt to pick up where they left off at the end of major college football's first 15-0 campaign since 1897.

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence is one 300-yard passing performance on Thursday away from tying the school record for consecutive 300-yard passing games with three, which was accomplished twice by Tajh Boyd in 2013. Lawrence (169) is also 19 attempts shy of breaking Boyd's record of consecutive pass attempts without an interception (187 from 2012-13).

One of Lawrence's top targets, Justyn Ross, is in search of a program-record-tying third consecutive 100- yard receiving game. That record is presently shared by five players: Charlie Waters (1969), Tony Horne (1997), Rod Gardner (2000), DeAndre Hopkins (2012) and Sammy Watkins (2013).


Spend tonight’s game with us in this thread! Brandon Stockdale will be holding down the fort along with the rest of the CST Team.

Let's do this. John Swofford with the coin toss here in Death Valley. Georgia Tech wins the toss and deferred.

Quick three-and-out to open the game. Georgia Tech fumbles the punt and the Tigers are back in business at the 16 yard line.

I can hear Lowell now....bragging about the simulation.

Clemson takes a 7-0 lead with 11:52 left in Q1 on a 6-yard Trevor Lawrence rush.

Trevor Lawrence with a nice walk-in touchdown, but JC Chalk drove his man back to the goal line. Run blocking from these unproven tight ends will be a necessity. Should build confidence.

Travis Etienne puts the ball on the ground after picking up what would have been a first down. After review...the Yellow Jackets take over at the 41-yard line.

Etienne's 90-yard dash ties the longest run in Clemson history. Dude hit the gas....14-0 Clemson with 5:39 left in Q1.

Trevor Lawrence looks so confident while running the football. Probably due to the muscle he put on in the offseason.

That Lawrence interception was not a beautiful one at all.

Clemson now going four-wide with Ross, Higgins, Overton, and Ngata. That's a scary group.

The Tigers haven't been perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but they still lead 28-0 at the end of the 1st half.

This game has had a weird vibe around it, but No. 1 Clemson is just smashing the Yellow Jackets in the opener.
