Dabo’s First Career Win

Clemson’s defense is ranked No. 22 in the nation and third in the ACC in scoring defense.  The last two weeks the Tigers have only given up 20 combined points to Maryland and Georgia Tech.  

Three Games with No Turnovers

Clemson has not committed a turnover in the last three games.  The Tigers had six turnovers against Miami and haven’t had any since.  The offense has run 196 consecutive plays without a turnover.  

Parker Starts Second Half Strong

Kyle Parker had a strong second half to the 2009  season and that was a big reason the Tigers finished strong and won the Atlantic.  In the first six games of 2009 Parker completed 49 percent of his passes and had an efficiency rating of 105.  For the final six games he completed 61 percent and had an efficiency rating of 141.

So far in 2010 Parker has better stats than 2009.  Through the first six games he completed 51 percent for an efficiency rating of 111.  In game seven, the win over Georgia Tech, Parker completed 63 percent for a 127 efficiency mark.

Bowers Continues Record Pace

Clemson defensive end DaQuan Bowers has 10 sacks in his first seven games.  He had nine in the first six games, the most in school history for the first  six games.
