With the Win: Clemson 44, UConn 7

November 15, 2021

Clemson won its 33rd consecutive home game to extend its school record for both the longest home winning streak and longest home unbeaten streak in school history (as well as extend the nation’s longest active home winning streak). Of the 131 players on Clemson’s 2021 roster, 126 have never experienced a home loss in their Clemson careers. Five sixth-year “super seniors” on Clemson’s 2021 roster were on the 2016 team that recovered from a home loss to Pitt by winning the national championship that season.

Clemson won its 24th consecutive non-conference home game to extend the longest such winning streak in program history. Clemson's last home loss in non-conference play was in 2012. 

Clemson tied 1900-03 Harvard, 1901-06 Nebraska and 1995-2000 Marshall (33 each) for the 15th-longest home winning streak in FBS history.

Clemson is now 1-0 all-time against UConn.

Clemson improved to 64-38-4 all-time in its first meeting with its 106 all-time opponents, including a 15-1 mark in first meetings since 2003. Clemson has won 17 of its last 19 games when making its all-time debut against a new opponent.

Clemson improved to 30-6-2 against FBS independents since the NCAA split Division I into the divisions now known as the Football Bowl Subdivision and Football Championship Subdivision in 1978. 

Clemson won its 13th straight game against FBS independents dating to 1988. (Note: Clemson's loss to Notre Dame in 2020 came during Notre Dame's lone year of ACC membership.)

Clemson earned its 775th win in program history. Clemson became the 14th FBS program to accomplish the feat.

Dabo Swinney earned his 147th career win in his 14th season (including an interim stint in 2008) to tie Tom Osborne (147) for the fourth-most wins through the first 15 seasons of a coaching career in FBS history.

Clemson improved to 74-6 in regular season play since the start of the 2015 season. All six of Clemson's regular season losses in that span have been decided by a final margin of 10 or fewer points.

Clemson remained undefeated on ACC Network broadcasts since appearing in the channel's first live game broadcast in the 2019 season opener. Clemson went 4-0 on ACCN in 2019, 3-0 on ACCN in 2020 and is now 4-0 on the network this season.

Clemson improved to 115-13 against AP-unranked teams under Dabo Swinney. Clemson is 92-3 against unranked teams since the start of the 2012 season.

Clemson has now won 17 of its last 18 November games.

Clemson has now won 93 of its last 95 games, including each of its last 56, when leading at halftime.

Clemson is now 115-2 since 2011 when leading after three quarters.

Clemson now has a 113-2 record when totaling more first downs than its opponent since 2011.

Clemson has now won 96 of its last 97 games when holding teams under 23 points (dates to 2010), including 89 straight prior to a season-opening 10-3 loss to Georgia in 2021.
