Clemson won the first 11 games of a season for the third time under Head Coach Dabo Swinney (2015 and 2018). Swinney had already been the first coach in Clemson history to coach the school to multiple 11-0 starts, as legendary coaches Frank Howard and Danny Ford only accomplished the feat once each, in 1948 and 1981, respectively.

The 2019 Tigers won an 11th game to tie the 1948, 1978, 2012 and 2013 squads for the sixth-most wins in a season in school history.
