Successful Business Trip: 7-0

Whether or not the Canes’ pre-game antics woke Clemson up, the Tigers came to Miami Gardens ready to play. They countered Miami’s best offensive shot early, taking a 14-0 lead and intercepting Brad Kaaya on his first series.

What ensued was nothing short of a historic blowout, as Clemson handed The U its largest margin of defeat in the program’s storied 90-year history, and matched its own largest win dating back to the 1981 Championship season.

The win helped Clemson to jump to No. 3 in the AP poll, and considering other outcomes around the country, the Tigers should control their destiny for a playoff berth.

While it’s important to keep our eyes on the prize (competing for a National Championship), we took the time to appreciate this win and evaluate where Clemson’s program has come.
