CLEMSON SEEKS 10TH WIN OF THE SEASON ON SATURDAY ON SENIORS DAY

Clemson will look to extend the third-longest streak of 10 consecutive 10-win seasons in FBS history on Saturday, Nov. 19 when the 9-1 Tigers host the 5-5 Miami Hurricanes on Clemson’s Senior Day. Kick-off at Memorial Stadium is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.

Clemson has won at least 10 games in 11 straight seasons. A win on Saturday would be Clemson’s 10th of the 2022 season and allow the Tigers to join record-holder Florida State (14th from 1987-2000).
Alabama (14 from 2008-21) as the only FBS program to ever win 10 or more games in 12 straight seasons.

Although Saturday’s game will not be Clemson’s 2022 home final, Clemson will honor his 2022 senior class before the game. Over the past few years, with Clemson playing his regular-season finale against South Carolina, the Tigers have opted to instead honor the group in the game that precedes this charged rivalry contest. Clemson’s seniors are 43-7 over the past four seasons, the third-most wins in the country in that span behind Alabama (45) and Georgia (44). The group will have the opportunity to become the 11th senior class in Clemson history to win at least three conference championships when they play North Carolina in the December 3 ACC championship game.

A win on Saturday would allow the Tigers to end conference play of the regular season with a perfect ACC record for the ninth time in program history, earning the 1967 (6-0), 1978 (6-0), 1981 (6-0) 0), 1982 (6:0), 1983 (7:0), 2015 (8:0), 2018 (8:0) and 2019 (8:0) seasons.
