Clemson earned its eighth straight victory, dating to last season, the longest active winning streak in the Power Five.

Clemson won its 19th straight home debut. The win extended Clemson’s longest winning streak in home openers all-time, ahead of its 17 from 1944-60.

Clemson improved to 97-17-8 in home openers. 

Clemson won its 35th consecutive home game to extend its school record for both the longest home winning streak and longest home unbeaten streak in school history. 

Clemson’s 35-game home winning streak is the nation’s longest home winning streak. No member of Clemson’s roster has lost a home game at Clemson in their careers. 

Clemson (35) tied the 2006-11 Boise State Broncos for the 14th-longest home winning streak in FBS history. Clemson’s streak is only the 15th home winning streak of 35 games or more in FBS history and pulls Clemson within two games of the ACC record (Florida State, 37 from 1992-2001).

Clemson is now a national-best 54-1 at home in the College Football Playoff era (since 2014).

Clemson won its 25th consecutive non-conference home game. Clemson’s active 25-game non-conference winning streak at home is the longest such winning streak in program history, as Clemson’s last home loss in non-conference play was in 2012. 

Clemson improved to 35-3 against non-conference opponents at Death Valley under Dabo Swinney.

Clemson improved to 44-10-4 against Furman all-time. Clemson’s 44 all-time wins against Furman are fourth-most against a single opponent in Clemson history

Clemson won its 32nd consecutive contest against Furman and extended its unbeaten streak against the Paladins to 33 consecutive games. The last tie between the two teams occurred in 1937, and the most recent Furman victory in the series came during the 1936 campaign. Clemson’s 32-game winning streak against Furman is its longest winning streak — both active and all-time — against any opponent.

Clemson won its 22nd consecutive home game against Furman to add to its longest single-opponent home winning streak in school history, which dates to 1938 and predates the opening of Memorial Stadium in 1942.

Clemson improved to 37-0 against Football Championship Subdivision teams since the NCAA formed the division prior to the 1978 season.

Clemson improved to 119-13 against AP-unranked teams under Dabo Swinney. Clemson is now 96-3 against unranked teams since the start of the 2012 season.

Clemson improved to 27-2 in September games since 2015. 

Clemson improved to 29-6 under Dabo Swinney in games in which the Tigers enter ranked lower in the AP Poll than they did in its previous contest. Clemson dropped from No. 4 to No. 5 in the most recent poll following a 31-point road win in conference play in the season opener.

Clemson is now 68-4 when scoring first since 2015.

Clemson has now won 98 of its last 100 games, including each of its last 61, when leading at halftime.

Clemson improved to 120-2 since 2011 when leading after three quarters.

Clemson now has a 118-2 record when totaling more first downs than its opponent since 2011 and has won its last 58 such contests.

Clemson has now won 99 of its last 100 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.

Clemson won its 35th consecutive game against unranked opponents when ranked in the AP Top 5, the longest active streak in college football according to ESPN Stats & Info.
