COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - A showdown between two undefeated teams set off Saturday, Oct. 22. Clemson and Syracuse began their game at Memorial Stadium with a noon kick-off.

Saturday marked the first time in the 81-season history at Memorial Stadium that Clemson hosted a game between two undefeated teams with records of 6-0 or better.

The Death Valley match had the Tigers looking to bring down another undefeated challenger. So far this season Clemson has beaten four teams that were undefeated before crossing paths with them. Georgia Tech, Furman, Wake Forest, and NC State all fell to the Tigers.

Saturday’s game was homecoming for the Tigers. The team has been on back-to-back ACC road games over the last two weeks. Clemson enters the game on a 37-game home winning streak.



Clemson now has an 8-0 winning stream for the season and extends the nation’s longest active home winning streak to 38 games, now the longest such streak in ACC history.

On Saturday, Nov. 5, Clemson will go head-to-head with Notre Dame. Kickoff begins at 7:30 p.m.
