Game Three Recap
Conference play has arrived for No. 3/2 Clemson, which will square off against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Clemson’s 2018 ACC debut on Saturday, Sept. 22. Kickoff from Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.
Clemson has had to make itself at home on the road in conference openers in years past, as 2018 marks the seventh consecutive season that the Tigers have opened conference play on the road. Clemson has won each of their last three conference openers, and with a victory on Saturday, the 2018 seniors can become Clemson’s first senior class to sweep their conference openers since 2005.
Last week, Swinney and the Tiger coaching staff publicly declared their intention to jumpstart the Clemson running game, and the Tigers delivered against Georgia Southern with their first 300-yard rushing game since the fourth game of the 2017 season. Running back Travis Etienne led Clemson with a career-high 162 yards on 16 carries. He eclipsed 1,000 career rushing yards on his final run and now sits atop the school’s all-time leaderboard for yards-per-carry average (7.29).
