ACC WINNING STREAKS
Clemson has won 39 of its last 41 games vs. ACC opponents, including ACC Championship game wins against North Carolina (2015), Virginia Tech (2016), Miami (2017) and Pittsburgh (2018). Clemson has won its most recent game against every ACC team and owns a streak of at least two wins against 12 of the 13 squads.
WHEN IN DOUBT, CLEMSON RESPONDS
After opening the season as the AP No.1-ranked team, Clemson's game against Boston College on Saturday will be the third straight contest in which Clemson will play after a drop in the AP Poll.
In Head Coach Dabo Swinney's tenure, the Tigers have routinely responded well following dips in the AP rankings. Under Swinney, Clemson is 23-4 in games in which it enters ranked lower in the AP Poll than it did in its previous contest. This includes the 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018 season openers in which Clemson opened the season lower than its ranking from the final game of the previous campaign. Including last week, Clemson has won its last 15 games when entering ranked lower in the AP Poll than in its previous game.
22 AND COUNTING
Clemson enters this week riding a 22-game winning streak dating to the 2018 season opener. Clemson's active winning streak is one of only three double-digit winning streaks in the country.
Clemson's current 22-game winning streak marks the program's 10th all-time winning streak of at least 10 games and the longest streak in team history. Clemson surpassed its previous record 17-game winning streak from 2014-15 for sole possession of the longest streak in school history with a 41-6 win against Syracuse on Sept. 14. The current streak marks the third time Dabo Swinney has had a winning streak of at least 10 games. Danny Ford had three separate streaks of at least 10 games, including a 13-game streak from 1980 through the last game of the 1981 season. Frank Howard had a 15-game winning streak from 1947-49 and was part of a 13-game streak from 1939- 40. The school's first 10-game winning streak took place under Walter Riggs and John Heisman from 1899 to 1901.
