Clemson opened a season 7-0 for the ninth time in school history, joining the 1948, 1981, 2000, 2011, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019 seasons. 

Clemson went 4-0 at home in October, winning four home games in a single month for only the second time in school history.

Including both home and road games, Clemson went 5-0 in October, securing its eighth five-win month in school history. Clemson went 5-0 in October 1977, October 1981, November 1991, September 2000, October 2015, September 2017 and September 2018.
