Welcome to a warm boutique experience in the heart of downtown Clemson. At The Shepherd Hotel, every room is curated for comfort, every event features a backdrop of spectacular views, and every guest is invited to experience the heartfelt hospitality of our team.

An unexpected loss in South Bend over the weekend has seemingly crushed the once-undefeated Clemson Tiger’s hope for a championship win.

An ugly 35-14 defeat against the Fighting Irish (6-3) resulted in an unfortunate drop in rankings for the Tigers (8-1, 6-0), once shining at No. 4 and falling to No. 10 after the loss.

The Tigers struggled for a second consecutive game on the offensive side of the ball, falling behind 28-0 at a point during the match-up-- a first under Dabo Swinney. As seen in prior games, they were only able to maintain a small rhythm in the last remaining minutes.

Davis Allen, a reliable receiver and physical blocker, stuck out as a strong player who contributed to the Tiger’s efforts, leading the team in both receptions and yards (7-60). With his help, the tight ends were one of the only position groups that demonstrated a sense of consistency throughout the game. With Allen’s performance, he becomes the first player to get our Overnight Sensation Award two times this season.

On Monday, Allen commented on the team’s performance in South Bend.

"I mean, that's not our standard. That's not the expectation," Allen said. "Obviously, we didn't play to what we're capable of, and that part's disappointing, for sure."

With an upcoming home game against Louisville on Saturday, Allen touched on what he expects of his teammates after the loss and how they plan to bounce back.

"We just hit a little adversity, which I think is expected every year with any team," Allen said. "It's just our job to find a way to respond to that adversity and to get back on track."

The Louisville game will give the Tigers the opportunity to prove that the weekend’s disappointing loss does not define them. Will they be able to persevere? Stay locked on to find out!
