The Storylines

Clemson will kick off its 127th football season in school history in grand fashion on Labor Day as the Tigers travel to the home of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons for a prime-time ACC matchup with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Monday, Sept. 5. Kickoff for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium is set for 8 p.m. ET.

Clemson enters the 2022 campaign riding a streak of 11 consecutive 10-win seasons, including the 2021 campaign in which Clemson battled through injuries and a 4-3 start to finish 10-3 and ranked No. 14 in the final AP Poll. In addition to winning at least 10 games in each of the last 11 seasons, Clemson has also won at least one postseason game (conference championship game, bowl game and/or national championship game) in each of those campaigns, tied with the 1985-95 Florida State Seminoles for the longest such streak on record.

Welcome, everyone. Luke Winstel is on-site in Atlanta. I'm home sick, unfortunately.

Georgia Tech is getting the ball to start the game, which means we will see the Clemson defense first.

A bad snap for DJ and Clemson is forced to punt on their first drive.

No score in Atlanta as we are just getting going.

Yeah, tough snap for DJ to handle there. That's something to keep an eye on with Putnam making his first start there.

Swinney said that the QB-Center exchange had been really good this fall. Mentioned one bad snap--whoops.

Looks like DJ fumbled and then Joseph Ngata recovered. The ruling on the field is a fumble so the officials will sort this one out.

No score still.

Ruling on the field stands. Georgia Tech football.

9:18 and counting to play in the first.

So far, D.J. hasn't done anything to make you feel better about his situation as Clemson's starter. It's early, but man it feels like 2021 all over again.

4:03 to play in the first quarter. Georgia Tech is forced to punt and Clemson's defensive line is showing how tough they are to block so far.

We'll see what the offense can do in their third series. Not the greatest start so far.

Keion White beats the young freshman lineman Blake Miller and sacks DJU.

END 1Q: Clemson 0, Georgia Tech 0

Clemson with 43 yards of offense so far. Tigers will have it 3rd down when play resumes.

3 straight runs for Clemson and they can't punch it in as the offensive line cannot get a push. They'll have it 4th and goal following the timeout. I'd go for it here.

Will Shipley walks in on a 1-yard run and Clemson gets their first touchdown of 2022.

Clemson 7, Georgia Tech 0, 9:53 to play before the half.

The play recognition for Trenton Simpson to run down the screen was incredible.

The field goal is no good for Georgia Tech on a solid drive. 7-0 Clemson with 6:41 to play before the half.

Beaux Collins with two big completions on the drive -- a corner route and breaking his route for DJ's first passing touchdown of 2022. That was the best series of the night for Clemson. 8 plays, 67 yards.

Clemson leads 14-0 with 3:52 to play before the half.

Timeout Clemson,. 1:20 to play before the half as GT faces 4th and 5 inside Clemson territory. I think the Jackets will go for it here.

HALF: Clemson 14, Georgia Tech 3

Tigers got off to a shaky start early but now it seems they are starting to find their rhythm. We'll see what happens in the 2nd half.

I thought DJ actually looked much improved from last year.

Everything isn't a heater. Putting some touch on it. Not sailing anything. Much more accurate.

It's been tough to watch, though. Clemson's far superior in talent and can't do much on offense. It's really wild.

TD E.J. Jenkins, the South Carolina transfer scores on a 12-yard strike on the corner route with the nice ball placement from Jeff Sims. It goes without saying this is a huge drive coming up here for Clemson.

Clemson's lead is now cut to 14-10 with 9:47 to play in the third.

B.T. Potter knocks through the 41-yard field goal on a solid 12-play drive for the Tigers.

Clemson leads 17-10 with 5:41 to play in the 3rd.

DJU scores on a designed QB keeper right up the middle. Nice hole opened up on the left side of the OL. Clemson leads 24-10 with 1:18 to play in the 3rd.
