The Graveyard

Clemson has garnered 57 wins over AP-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. Clemson added to the area in 2005 when it defeated #19 South Carolina 13-9 in Columbia, then had a 27-20 victory at ninth-ranked Florida State in 2006. It is the first time in 10 years that Clemson has had graveyard additions in consecutive years.
