The Storylines

Clemson and Tennessee meet to wrap up the 2022 season on Friday night in South Florida. Tigers freshman quarterback Cade Klubnik will make his first career start against the Volunteers. This is after earning ACC Championship Game Most Valuable Player honors for his sterling performance in reserve against North Carolina. Klubnik will become the first Clemson quarterback to make his starting debut in a postseason game since Clemson abandoned the single-wing offense in favor of the T-formation in 1953.

Since 2022, Clemson quarterbacks are 9-2 in the first career starts with wins by Charlie Whitehurst, Will Proctor, Cullen Harper, Kyle Parker, Tajh Boyd, Deshaun Watson, Kelly Bryant, Trevor Lawrence and DJ Uiagalelei.


Spend this afternoon’s game with us in this thread! Brandon Stockdale will be holding down the fort along with the rest of the CST Staff.

FINAL: No. 6 Tennessee 31, No. 7 Clemson 14

Good evening everyone! Hope everyone had a great Christmas with their family and friends! We are in for a treat tonight in Miami -- it's Clemson and Tennessee to end the 2022 season. Should be a fun one. How about what's going on in Jacksonville?

Hoping for a Tiger win! That ND vs. SC game was a good one too. What a college football day!

Clemson has won the toss and will defer until the second half. We will get to see Joe Milton from the Vols against the Tiger defense. Let's roll.

Bryan Bresee is slow to get to his feet after the quick pass for the 1st down. Thought the Tigers gave too much of a cushion there.

Ruke Orhorhoro sacks Joe Milton on 3rd down. That's his third sack of the season. Tigers will get the ball next with Cade Klubnik at the helm.

How about that big third-down conversion -- that pass and the catch by Turner...wow.

Clemson tries to run a fake punt with Drew Swinney and doesn't get it. Don't understand that call on the opening drive when you have points, but ok.

9:18 to play 1Q, no score in Miami.

I don't like that fake FG call. Take the points-- easy kick for Potter. Ugh.

Why?? probably should have pitched the ball!

Ruke O guilty of unsportsmanlike conduct and the Vols are threatening with 6:45 and counting in the first.

Unsportsmanlike conduct now on Tenn head coach Josh Heupel. He was getting after the official during the last play.

Touchdown Vols. Joe Milton connects with Bru McCoy for the 16-yard TD on the post route. Great route and great throw from Milton.

7-0 Vols with 5:17 to play in the 1Q after an 11-play, 75 yard drive after the Tigers failed fake FG attempt.

Big drive here for Cade! Come on youngster!! I'm still mad about the fake FG.

Nice to see Klubnik go to Allen early in this drive. He's been under-utilized in some big games this season. It would be great to see Allen get going early today.

Pass interference on Tenn will give Clemson a first down inside Volunteer territory. Tigers threatening.

I hate the college PI rule! I hope they change it to the NFL version.

Cade Klubnik tries to find someone on the roll out but is sacked by Byron Young for the Vols.

And the 55-yard FG from B.T. Potter is no good. Clemson comes up empty. 3:05 to play in the first. Tennessee up 7-0.

Wade Woodaz immediately gets into the backfield on the inside run to get the 3rd down stop. Vols will punt and Tigers get the ball back with 1:37 to play in the opening quarter. Vols lead 7-0.

END 1Q in Miami: Tennessee 7, Clemson 0

Tigers moving the ball well inside Vol territory. Let's see if they can finish this one off with points. I like what I've seen from Joseph Ngata so far tonight. 2 catches for 26 yards.

Woodaz has developed nicely this season and flashed good potential:

49-yard FG from B.T. Potter is no good. Tigers come up empty again. Issues on the offensive line are starting to rear their ugly head. And Cade Klubnik is throwing rockets.

7-0 Tennessee with 14:09 to play before the half.

Great pass break up there by Toriano Pride. Trading punts here in Miami.

Big time stand from Clemson's defense to force a 3 and out. It stays a one score game in Q2.
