The Graveyard


Clemson has garnered 73 wins over AP or USA Today ranked teams over the years, but some wins stand out. Winning over a ranked team in Death Valley is one thing, but gaining victory over a ranked team on an opponent’s home field is an extraordinary accomplishment. To document these victories, Clemson has constructed a “Graveyard” at the entrance to the Clemson practice fields behind the Jervey Athletic Center. Under Dabo Swinney's watch, the Tigers have added nine tombstones to the "Graveyard" — including 2015 victims North Carolina (ACC Championship Game) and Oklahoma (Orange Bowl).
