The Storylines

Clemson and Texas A&M are meeting for the sixth time in program history. The Tigers are attempting to even the all-time series record against Texas A&M at 3-3. Texas A&M won the first three games in the all-time series (1973, 1974, and 2004), while Clemson earned victories in 2005 and 2018.

The Tigers are also attempting to win its 17th consecutive game, dating to the start of the 2018 season. It would tie Clemson's all-time longest winning streak, matching a 17-game streak across the final three games of the 2014 season and the first 14 games in 2015.

Clemson is also hoping to win their12th consecutive game by 20 or more points, which would extend its school record in the category and tie 2018 Alabama for the longest such streak by any team in the AP Poll era (since 1936).

The Tigers could also win their sixth straight home game against SEC competition (def. Georgia in 2014, South Carolina in 2014 and 2016, Auburn in 2017, and South Carolina again in 2018). The current five-game home winning streak against SEC foes is already the longest in school history. 

Add to that this one final number, Clemson is attempting to win its 20th consecutive regular-season non-conference game. The Tigers’ current 19-game streak against non-conference opponents in the regular season dates to a 73-7 win against South Carolina State on Sept. 6, 2014. No member of Clemson's current roster has lost a non-conference game in regular-season play.


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.

Good afternoon folks!

It's almost time for kickoff inside Death Valley and as Lawton said, we'll be keeping you updated with this afternoon's contest between Clemson and Texas A&M.

Check out this pic of C.J. Spiller and Charlie Whitehurst in pregame to get things started off:

In other news, Syracuse is going to go down in a big way to Maryland. They are down 63-20 so, College GameDay most likely won't be heading to upstate New York next Saturday

According to the ESPN broadcast, it's 96 degrees in Clemson, the hottest opening kickoff ever. It's hot out there, folks.

First big play of the game coming up here -- Texas A&M has it 4th and 1 here late in the first quarter. Can Clemson's defensive front keep up the momentum from last week?

Through one quarter, this one looks like it's going to be a toe-to-toe type matchup. I'd argue that both teams have missed some chances early.

Aggies are threatening to score with the ball on the 15-yard line.

Aggies had the best drive of the day that took up 7 minutes. Part of the plan for A&M is to eat up clock and keep Lawrence and Co. on the sidelines.

Etienne with a 27-yard screen pass sparks the crowd. He was zig-zagging through the A&M defense. Clemson's offense is moving the ball much better on this drive. Timeout for an A&M injury.

Xavier Thomas has gone out with an injury with what looks like to his left leg. That's a big loss on the defensive front if he can't come back.

Xavier Thomas was helped off of the field....he was walking into the medical tent. We will let you know if we get an update.

Man...you said it. I hate to think teams would do that, but I can't say that's not the case today.

An exchange of punts to open the second half.

Love the screens to ETN. Several times his burst of speed has made something out of nothing on those screen passes

Getting ETN involved in that part of the game has been big.

Down 24-3 the Aggies finally look like they are ready to play....we are under 10:00 in the fourth quarter as they sit just outside the 10-yard line.

I know there's been conversations about making the game shorter. Well, that review didn't help matters. It took over 3 minutes and the officials blew the whistle before the ball was snapped. That's got to be something that's worked on moving forward.
