With the Win: No. 9 Clemson 40, Miami 10

November 19, 2022

Clemson produced its 19th 10-win season in program history and its 12th 10-win season under Head Coach Dabo Swinney.

Clemson won 10 games for a school-record 12th consecutive season. Clemson became only the third FBS program ever to post 11 consecutive 10-win seasons alongside Florida State (14 from 1987-2000) and Alabama (14 from 2008-21). Clemson was already the only school to win 10 games in double-digit consecutive seasons as a member of the ACC, as only the final nine of Florida State’s 14-straight 10-win seasons came during the Seminoles’ tenure in the ACC.

Clemson has now won at least 10 of the first 11 games of a season for the 12th time in program history, joining the 1948 (11-0), 1978 (10-1), 1981 (11-0), 2012 (10-1), 2013 (10-1), 2015 (11-0), 2016 (10-1), 2017 (10-1), 2018 (11-0), 2019 (11-0) and 2020 (10-1) campaigns.

Clemson won its sixth home game of the season to push its active streak of winning at least six home games at Memorial Stadium to 12 years. The next longest streak of six-plus home wins in the country entering 2022 was five years (Notre Dame).

Clemson won its 40th consecutive home game to extend the longest home winning streak in ACC history. No member of Clemson’s roster has lost a home game at Clemson in their careers. 

Clemson tied the 1907-18 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (40) for the eighth-longest home winning streak in FBS history.

Clemson produced only the ninth 40-game home winning streak in FBS history. It is the first 40-game home winning streak in the FBS since Nebraska from 1991-98 (47).

Head Coach Dabo Swinney joined Alabama's Bear Bryant (57 from 1963-82), Michigan's Fielding Yost (50 from 1901-07) and Texas' Darrell Royal (42 from 1968-76) as the only FBS head coaches ever to preside over the entirety of a program's home winning streak of 40 games or more.

With his 160th career victory, Swinney tied Oklahoma's Bob Stoops (160) for the second-most victories in the first 15 seasons of a head coaching career in FBS history.

Clemson pushed its national-best record at home in the College Football Playoff era (since 2014) to 59-1.

Clemson took the all-time series lead against Miami at 7-6. It represents Clemson’s first lead in the all-time series.

Clemson evened its all-time home record against Miami at 2-2.

Clemson won a fourth straight game against Miami for the first time in series history.

Clemson (8-0) finished with a perfect record in ACC regular season play for the ninth time in program history, joining the 1967 (6-0), 1978 (6-0), 1981 (6-0), 1982 (6-0), 1983 (7-0), 2015 (8-0), 2018 (8-0) and 2019 (8-0) seasons.

Clemson’s 2022 team joined the 2015 (8-0), 2018 (8-0), 2019 (8-0) and 2020 (8-1) squads as the only teams in school history to win eight conference games in a regular season.

Clemson won its 11th consecutive game against conference opponents, dating to last season. It tied for Clemson's fourth-longest streak against conference opponents since the formation of the ACC in 1953.

Clemson improved to 36-9 against opponents historically from the ACC Coastal Division, including postseason play, under Head Coach Dabo Swinney. That figure includes games against traditional Coastal opponents in a divisionless season in 2020. Clemson has now won 22 of its last 24 games against the Coastal Division since 2015.

Clemson is now 124-14 against AP unranked teams under Dabo Swinney.
