With the win, Clemson remained undefeated at 5-0 on the year and 2-0 in the ACC, while Syracuse faced its first loss of 2018 and moved to 4-1 overall and 1-1 in conference play.

Offensively, the ground game powered Clemson and was led by Etienne, who rushed for a career-high 203 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries. Tee Higgins was the Tigers’ leading receiver, amassing 53 yards on four catches, including one for 20 yards on a fourth-and-six that kept the game-winning drive alive.
