The Storylines

Clemson attempting to win its 22nd consecutive game, dating to the start of the 2018 season, to extend the longest winning streak in school history and second-longest winning streak in ACC history.

The Tigers are also attempting to win a 16th consecutive ACC regular-season game for the second time in school history (20 from 1981-84). Clemson also enters the week as the only team in the country with five wins against Power Five opponents this season. Dabo Swinney’s squad has won those five contests by an average of 23.8 points.

Clemson is attempting to open a season 7-0 for the eighth time in school history, joining the 1948, 1981, 2000, 2011, 2015, 2016 and 2018 campaigns.

With a win today, Clemson would push its all-time record against Louisville to 6-0. The Tigers would also improve to 3-0 all-time at Louisville. Clemson earned a 20-17 win on a Thursday night in Louisville in 2015 and secured a 47-21 win in Louisville in 2017.

The Tigers are also looking to win the first six games against a school for the fifth time all-time and the second time against a school presently in the FBS. The Tigers previously won each of their first six all-time contests in series with The Citadel, Furman, Newberry, and Virginia.

One final note, with Clemson having scored 42, 47 and 77 points in its last three meetings with Louisville, the Tigers could set a new record. If they have another 40-point performance, it would represent the first time Clemson has scored at least 40 points in four straight games in a series with an ACC opponent.


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 morning everyone -- first early kickoff of the season. Hope everyone is doing well as we close in on kickoff here at noon.

That's a great start for the run game. They've seemed to lack big plays on the ground for the past few games. Let's see how that changes, or doesn't change, the playcalling on offense.

K'Von gets the pick and I liked how Clemson started off the drive with the run from Etienne. The drive stalled but B.T. Potter got a chance to redeem himself. 3-0 Tigers.

Good for Potter bouncing back. Guess he really did just need a good butt chewing.

Well, that was almost a disaster for Clemson. DK tries to field the punt and shouldn't have.

Hey hey what's up guys? Caught a break there on that miffed punt. Wasn't he inside the 10? Heck let it go and bounce into the end zone

That was an awful throw by Lawrence.... tried to thread the needle and threw it right to the safety there.

I think it may be time to retire that bubble screen, but wouldn't mind seeing us run a few jet sweeps

Teams have been picking on AJ Terrell a little lately. Strange to see.

On the bright side, how about the big guy rumblin'?

Not sure if anyone expected this game to turn into a turnover fest.

Need to stop going for the home run ball. Let's just get first downs and put some points on the board

Gotta stop forcing the ball and hit the check. Or... run the football.

Defense is gonna start getting mad at the offense at this rate.

Lawrence broke out of his noon time sleepiness a little on that drive.

Glad we punched it in especially to get Rencher a TD, but Tee's catch was a TD

Come on offensive cords... first half could have been a blowout. Louisville was just trying to stop big plays. If they are giving you the run and passes underneath take it! Too much going for home run shots. I feel like Clemson feels like we are better than you so we will try what we want when we want. I would love to see some patience in the play calling. I feel if Clemson committed to the run in the first half they have 4 TDs at the break.
But Clemson's defense shined again!
Great win! 7-0!

Great win yesterday. It's funny because that storyline will be the start and not the finish. By the way, Travis Etienne is a stud. I love watching him run the football.
