2011 Clemson vs Va Tech ACC Championship:
Dabo Swinney’s first ACC Title, and the Tigers first since 1991. For the second time that season, Kevin Steele’s defense put the clamps on the Hokies, as Clemson got a dominating win.
1989 Gator Bowl Clemson vs West Virginia
In the first ever meeting between the two schools, Clemson would beat the Mountaineers 27-7. This one was close for three quarters, despite Major Harris taking a beating all game long. A beating so bad, his mom almost came out of the stands to protect her baby boy.
It also happened to be Danny Ford’s last game as Clemson head coach.
1981 Clemson vs Georgia
The Tigers would end the reigning national champions 15 game winning streak, on the way to winning a national title of their own. The first in program history.
1981 UNC vs Clemson
Another game on the road to the Tigers first title in 1981, with Clemson winning 10-8. The Heels were a good program back then, and on this day gave Clemson what might have been their toughest challenge that season.
1981 Orange Bowl Clemson vs Nebraska
Danny Ford and the Tigers win the programs first national title, knocking Tom Osborne’s powerhouse Nebraska Cornhuskers. The game that made Ford a legend in just his third season leading the team.
