Team Notes

*Clemson scored 42 points, marking the seventh straight game the Tigers have scored at least 37 points in a game. That ties an ACC record. The only other ACC team to score at least 37 in a game seven contests in a row is Florida State in 1995.

*Clemson scored 28 points in the second quarter against 5h Deacons - the most points in a quarter in an ACC road game since 2000 at Duke when the Tigers had 28 also in the second quarter. Clemson scored 32 points in the second period against Ball State earlier this year.

*Clemson recorded five sacks for the game, the most for the Tigers in a game since Clemson had six in the season opener of 2010 against North Texas.

*Clemson's victory margin - 29 points - was its largest at Wake Forest since a Clemson 51-6 win in Winston-Salem in 1978, Steve Fuller’s senior year. It is the most points Clemson has scored against Wake Forest overall since a 44-10 win at Clemson in 2007.

*Clemson improved to 2-9 in Thursday night games on ESPN. It was Clemson’s first win in that situation since a 31-10 victory at NC State in 2005.

*Clemson won the turnover margin and has now outscored the opposition 83-17 this year in terms of points off turnover.

*Clemson has four consecutive wins over ACC teams by 14 points or more for the first time since 1978. That year the Tigers beat Virginia (30-14), Duke (28-8), NC State (33-10) and Wake Forest (51-6) in consecutive games. Overall it is the first time Clemson has won four straight games by 14 points against anyone since 2000 when the Tigers won their first five games by at least 21 points.
