The Storylines

After meeting only twice in Clemson’s first 119 seasons of play, Clemson and Notre Dame will meet for the fifth time in eight seasons when the Tigers and Fighting Irish renew acquaintances on Saturday, Nov. 5. Kickoff at Notre Dame Stadium is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.

In its most recent contest, Clemson recorded its 38th consecutive home victory, setting the ACC record and tying the 1919-27 Fighting Irish for the 10th-longest home winning streak in FBS history. Those Irish teams under the guidance of College Football Hall of Famer Knute Rockne were a combined 78-7-3 at all venues in the seasons comprising that streak.

But Clemson has supplemented its historic home streak with the nation’s best road record since 2015. Clemson’s 34-4 road record in that span gives the Tigers a national-best .895 road winning percentage, and Clemson’s 34 road wins since 2015 are three more than any other FBS program and five more than any other Power Five program.

Good evening everyone! Hope everyone is doing well. We are about 30 minutes from kickoff in South Bend between Clemson and Notre Dame. The game will be televised by NBC.

The Tigers have also clinched the Atlantic Division with Syracuse's loss to Pitt earlier today. They will face North Carolina on the first Saturday in December in Charlotte in the ACC Championship.

Myles Murphy sacks Drew Pyne and the Irish will have to punt. DJ and the Clemson offense out for their first series.

11:45 to play in the first quarter, just getting going in South Bend. No score.

Beaux Collins with two holding penalties on the first drive hurting the Tigers on the initial series.

The Tigers' punt is blocked and returned for a touchdown. They got a hand on it inside and made the play.

Notre Dame leads Clemson 7-0 with 9:08 to play in the first.

Good gracious, Clemson can NEVER get a holding call this year. Two called on the Tigers' opening drive. Wow.

Dabo Swinney and the Tigers elect to go for it on 4th and 4 but Notre Dame holds. DJU tried to hit the corner route but didn't give the receiver a chance there.

Notre Dame leads 7-0 in the first quarter.

Honestly, I don't like the call to go for the deep ball on 4th and 4. Have to go for a slant or something quicker.

Good stop for Clemson's defense. A very good punt will pin the Tigers in deep.

Notre Dame 7, Clemson 0

Tigers force a punt and the offense will be pinned deep inside their own territory when play resumes.

END 1Q: Notre Dame 7, Clemson 0

The Irish will have the ball near midfield when play resumes. Not a pretty start for the Tigers offensively as they have come out and are content to stick with the quick game right now.

Tyler Davis brings the pressure on Drew Pyne and the Irish are forced to punt.

This team is just missing a spark-- it's the strangest thing to watch.

Not the greatest punt for Aidan Swanson as he only got 24 yards out of it. Tigers still struggling to get anything going after a Will Shipley run for a 1st down.

11:20 to play before the half. Tigers trail Notre Dame 7-0.

Agreed, Swanny. A real lack of explosive plays offensively.

The 42-yard field goal attempt is no good from Blake Grupe. Tyler Davis having a nice game so far with the knockdown during the drive. Tigers will look to get something going offensively when play resumes.

Notre Dame 7, Clemson 0 with 8:35 to play before the half.

We have too much talent to allow this. Dabo has proven himself to be competent over the years but the coordinators have not. Sometimes being nice hurts you more than helps you.

Drew Pyne scores on the 5-yard keeper. Notre Dame with a nice mix of run and play action to get in scoring position. That was a long drive for the Irish as well.

Notre Dame leads Clemson 14-0 with 38 seconds to play before the half.

HALF: Notre Dame 14, Clemson 0

Tigers held scoreless for the first time since last year's season opener vs. Georgia. They were held to 71 yards offensively in the first half. Clemson has to find a spark and continue to push the envelope with the run game with DJ struggling. And maybe it's time to consider putting in Cade Klubnik for a series or two?
BradyH

"Good job by DJ to hold on to the football"

Thats probably the best thing you can say about DJ that half. He didnt fumble when getting sacked. Second half he has one drive to show improvement. After that he is done IMO

No one picked up the blitz there from ND and the Tigers will punt on their first series of the 2nd half.

Drew Pyne took a big hit from Jeremiah Trotter on the incompletion and they are reviewing it from targeting. It looks like roughing the passer to me.

Notre Dame has the ball and is driving, up 14-0 with 10:30 to play in the third.

Wes Goodwin is an intelligent man. Thats all fine and good. What he is not is a firestarter. BV could light a fire under the D. Goodwin can't do that. Sometimes an analyst needs to remain an analyst and not be put in charge.

No targeting called. Notre Dame offense on the move again.

ND is forced to punt and Clemson will be pinned at their own 6. 9:23 to play in the third, ND leads 14-0.

Brady-- you might be on to something, but this isn't on the defense.

They've given up 7 points-- the offense is the issue.

Tight end passes to the perimeter aren't going to get you back in this game.

I don't talk penalties much-- but both of those looked like PI to me.
