Clemson earned its 33rd all-time victory against Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech is one of 11 schools against whom Clemson has earned at least 30 all-time victories (South Carolina, Wake Forest, North Carolina State, Furman, Virginia, North Carolina, Duke, Maryland, Presbyterian and The Citadel). It marks the second time this season Clemson has earned its 33rd all-time win against an opponent after having moved to 33-5-1 all-time against The Citadel earlier this year.

Clemson won its sixth consecutive game against Georgia Tech, dating back to a 43-24 home win in 2015. It extended Clemson’s longest winning streak in the all-time series, as the current streak already surpassed four-game winning streaks across the 1898-1903 seasons and the 1993-96 campaigns.

Clemson won a third straight road game at Georgia Tech for the first time in series history. Clemson had won consecutive games at Georgia Tech five times in school history (1902-03, 1906-07, 1986-88, 2001-03, 2016-18) but had previously never beaten the Yellow Jackets three consecutive times on the road.

Clemson recorded its 15th all-time road win against Georgia Tech.

Head Coach Dabo Swinney secured his 135th career win as a head coach to pass Virginia's George Welsh (134) for the second-most career wins by an ACC head coach. At the time of his retirement following the 2000 season, Welsh was the winningest head coach in ACC history prior to being passed by Bobby Bowden. 

Swinney improved to 9-5 all-time against Georgia Tech, including postseason play. He became the first Clemson head coach ever to defeat Georgia Tech in Atlanta three times.

Swinney improved to 9-5 all-time against Georgia Tech, including postseason play. He became the first Clemson head coach ever to defeat Georgia Tech in Atlanta three times.

Swinney improved to 12-6 as a head coach all-time in games against schools from the state of Georgia. He now has a 9-5 mark against Georgia Tech, a 1-1 record against Georgia and a 1-0 mark against both Georgia State and Georgia Southern.

Clemson earned its 14th consecutive victory in true road games, extending its current school record.

Though 2020 is technically a divisionless season, Clemson improved to 31-8 against opponents historically from the ACC Coastal Division, including postseason play, under Head Coach Dabo Swinney. Clemson has now won 17 of its last 18 games against the Coastal Division since 2015.

Clemson pushed its streak of consecutive victories in games that would typically count as ACC interdivisional matchups to 13 games, dating back to the 2016 ACC Championship Game.

Clemson won its 26th consecutive game against an ACC opponent, including postseason play. The 26-game winning streak against conference opponents pulls Clemson within two games of the 2012-15 Florida State Seminoles for the second-longest streak in ACC history.

Clemson has now won 34 consecutive regular season games, the longest such streak in ACC annals and the second-longest FBS streak since 2005. Clemson's last regular season loss came in October 2017 at Syracuse.

Clemson improved to 24-1 in October games in the College Football Playoff era (since 2014). 

Clemson won a 37th consecutive non-bowl game, tying the 1992-96 Nebraska Cornhuskers for the third-longest streak in the AP Poll era. Clemson has won 34 regular season games and three conference championship games in that span.
