The Storylines

Clemson's top-ranked scoring defense (10.1 points per game) has allowed only three points in each of its last two contests and has held opponents out of the end zone in each of the last nine quarters. After allowing only three points in each of its last two games, Clemson will attempt to hold a third consecutive opponent to single-digit points for the first time since the first three games of the 2000 season. If Clemson were to hold Virginia to three or fewer points, it would be Clemson's first streak allowing three or fewer points in three straight games since 1981.

Bolstered by what Head Coach Dabo Swinney has called the best back seven of his tenure, Clemson's pass defense has ascended to the top of every nearly statistical pass defense category. Clemson ranks first or tied for first in the country in opponent passing yards per game, opponent completions, opponent completion percentage, opponent passing yards per attempt, opponent passer rating and opponent passing touchdowns. While FBS teams have thrown at least six touchdowns in a single game 19 times this season, Clemson has allowed only six total passing touchdowns all year.

Clemson is also attempting to extend its active streak of wins by 30 or more points to eight to break the longest streak in the AP Poll era (since 1936). Per ESPN Stats & Info, Clemson is presently tied with 2011 Houston and 1976 Michigan at seven each.


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

Good evening everyone! Lawton and Sanders are holding things down in the press box in Charlotte while I hold things down here at home. Kickoff between Virginia and Clemson is coming up here at 7:30.

UVA is attacking Clemson's secondary right now.... particularly going after Tanner Muse and Nolan Turner, and it's working right now. The offense has 114 yards of offense right now. Night and day compared to against Pitt last year.

Muse was beat on the touchdown there from Bryce Perkins to Dubois... not a good start for the nearby Belmont product. 7-7 in CLT.

End of an interesting first quarter from the Queen City: Clemson is up 14-7 as the Tigers defense has been stretched. The quarterbacks for both teams look sharp (Lawrence is 5-5, 141 yards, 2 TDs, should've been picked on the last play of the quarter) Perkins is 11-17, 129 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT

Did you see that run by Taylor in the Big 10 title game? Whew....7-0 Wisconsin.

Clemson's wideouts are too much for UVA tonight. That being said the Virginia drives have been nice. I said it all week, Perkins is a baller.

I did.... he made that look easy.

Back in Charlotte, B.T. Potter had three tries to make a field goal and makes it on the third try after the second miss was negated thanks to Virginia being offside. You can't make those mistakes against Clemson and expect to pull off the upset.

Steve Levy is a little out of sorts tonight. Just said Charlotte Panthers are in Atlanta this week. Earlier he said XT's name was Xavier Johnson or something like that

Well, it was 14-7 Clemson at the end of the first quarter, and then the wave came, and now Clemson is up 31-7 as we are at halftime in the Queen City.

Don't really think the potential upset that is brewing in Indy impacts anything besides seeding.

I'm getting the sense this is a big series for Clemson -- they need to throw the knock out punch here after that score.

Isaiah Simmons with the pick as the Tigers continue to pour it on.

Clemson is on their way to a fifth straight ACC title and Playoff appearance. Let that sink in, folks. That's hard to do.
