2018 Football Recaps
No. 2/2 Clemson will be in search of its fourth consecutive ACC Atlantic Division title when it travels to face the No. 17/14 Boston College Eagles on Saturday, Nov. 10. Kickoff from Alumni Stadium is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.
Head Coach Dabo Swinney and the Tigers list five goals at the start of each season: Win the opener, win the division, win the state, win the conference and win the closer. Clemson accomplished goal No. 1 in September, and this week represents an opportunity for Clemson to secure goal No. 2. With a victory Saturday, Clemson can win the Atlantic Division and become the first team to win four straight division titles since the ACC’s formation of divisions in 2005. A division title would be Clemson’s sixth overall in that span, which would add to the most of any ACC Atlantic program and tie Virginia Tech for the most of any ACC program in either division.
A win would also represent the 50th by the Clemson senior class since 2015, which would tie school and ACC records for wins by a senior class. A victory would give Clemson its eighth consecutive 10-win season to tie Miami (1985-92) and Virginia Tech (2004-11) for the fourth-longest streak of 10-win seasons in FBS history.
Clemson’s ability to reach its goals this season has been aided in part by the ground game on both sides of the ball. Clemson ranks No. 1 in the nation in both yards per carry (6.94) and yards per carry against (2.24). With a school-record 13.3 yards per carry last week and 11.8 vs. Wake Forest, Clemson became only the second FBS team since 2000 to record multiple games with at least 11.0 yards per carry in a single season (Marshall, two in 2013).
