Clemson quarterback Brandon Streeter broke two school single game passing records against NC State on October 31. He completed 27 of 38 passes for 329 yards and three touchdowns. The 27 completions and 329 yards were single game marks. Nealon Greene had the old completions record with 26 against Virginia in 1997, and Thomas Ray had the old passing yardage record with 323 against UNC in 1965.
Streeter’s performance was outstanding in a number of areas. He completed 12-14 passes for 176 yards and three scores in the fourth quarter alone, the top fourth quarter passing game in Clemson history. He completed touchdown passes of 14 yards to Mal Lawyer, 52 yards to Brian Wofford, and 25 yards to Lawyer. He also led the Tigers 30 yards in six plays to a field goal that gave Clemson a 39-38 lead with 2:15 to play. Unfortunately, a Clemson defense depleted by injury, could not hold the Pack out of the endzone.
Overall, Streeter led Clemson to 303 yards of total offense and 15 first downs in the second half. He completed 20-25 passes in the half and had a passing efficiency of 159 for the game. Clemson’s 329 yards passing for the game was the fourth highest as a team in Clemson history.
Streeter’s performance against NC State was part of a strong finish to the junior’s season. Over the last four games he was 74-133 for 887 yards and nine touchdowns against just five interceptions. He had an efficiency of 126 for those four games.
