The Storylines

Saturday will represent just the eighth meeting between Clemson and Syracuse all-time and only the seventh in regular-season play. The Orange won the first meeting at the 1996 Gator Bowl in Jacksonville following the 1995 season by a 41-0 score. Clemson was ranked 23rd entering the game and was coming off a five-game winning streak to close the season. Syracuse was unranked but jumped to 17th in the final USA Today poll with the win quarterbacked by Donovan McNabb.

Clemson has won five of six meetings since Syracuse joined the ACC in 2013. The Tigers had won four in a row by at least double digits before Syracuse ended the streak with a 27-24 Friday night win over the Tigers at Syracuse in 2017. 

Saturday's game will be the eighth consecutive game against Syracuse — every game in the series — in which Clemson has been ranked in the top 25

Clemson starting safety Tanner Muse scored a return for a touchdown against Syracuse each of his first two seasons, and both scores were from nearly the same distance. In 2016 as a freshman, Muse had a 64-yard interception return for a score against the Orange in Clemson’s 54-0 win. In 2017, he had a 63-yard fumble return for a score at Syracuse. Muse was the first Clemson player to have a defensive touchdown against the same team in consecutive years since 1996-97. In 1996, Rahim Abdullah had a nine-yard fumble return for a score against NC State. The next year he had a 74-yard fumble return for a score against the Wolfpack.


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.

Clemson's defense looks like they are up to the challenge tonight.

We here brother! Not a fan of Syracuse's dirty play so far

If Syracuse is content to bring the heat, you'll continue to see the quick passing game become more of a factor and that should open things up for Travis Etienne.

Best drive from the Orange here.... Denzel Johnson got burned on what would've been a touchdown so we'll see what happens here to start the second quarter.

4 sacks for Clemson's defense so far tonight, they've got 6 all season. Syracuse has had injuries on the offensive line, which has forced some shuffling around and you can clearly see it's having a big impact here.

Clemson's defense continues to control things in the Carrier Dome.

Defense is being very aggressive so far. Offensively we seem to abandoned the run. Need to go back to the run game so it can set up the play action

I agree. Clemson has 50 yards rushing and is averaging 3.8 yards a carry.... no reason to abandon it.

Gotta get Etienne the ball.

Same goes for the screen game we saw the last two weeks. Unless I missed it, I don't think we've seen a screen to a running back so far in this game

Decent start for the defense there. The offense has a chance to deliver a demoralizing drive here.

Amari Rodgers is a bad man. Wow!

Well, that was a sequence of events:

1. Trevor throws a pick -- puts the Orange in business inside their 10.
2. Tommy DeVito makes a boneheaded decision not throwing it into the stands, giving it right back to Clemson with an interception of his own.
3. Amari Rodgers scores on a 87-yard screen pass for a touchdown.

24-6 Clemson. Tigers starting to distance themselves.

For a season when we thought the offense would put up video game type numbers, the defense has been the hero of our season so far

Brent Venables is a bad man. This Clemson defense is crushing it today.

Not in the first half....Tech had two and A&M slipped in that late one last week.

The defense is giving up 10.0 points per game right now.

Great thread, sorry I didn't see it. Would have contributed. Offense woke up, defense is woke. Let's go tigers! 4 & 0 is next!
