Clemson clinched the ACC Atlantic Division title with its 55-10 win over NC State on Saturday night at Carter-Finley Stadium and will play the Coastal Division champion in the ACC Championship Game on Saturday, Dec. 7.
The Tigers will become the first ACC team to represent a division in five consecutive ACC Championship Games. It marked Clemson’s eighth overall division title, including a co-championship in 2012 in which the Tigers did not appear in the ACC title game.
After the Tigers’ victory over the Wolfpack, The Clemson Insider reached out to a number of Clemson commitments and recruits for their reactions to Dabo Swinney’s program winning the ACC Atlantic Division title again. Check out what they had to say:
Clemson commit Sergio Allen, 2020 LB, Fort Valley, Ga. (Peach County): “Just goes to show we’re doing something right!! We’re coming for that Natty!”
Clemson commit Sage Ennis, 2020 TE, Tallahassee, Fla. (Lincoln): “Man it was a great game for Clemson! Played very well the whole entire game and got a big win! Clinched the division and now I’m sure they have their eyes on next week’s game.”
Clemson commit Walker Parks, 2020 OL, Lexington, Ky. (Frederick Douglass): “Awesome as always. Dominant team right there that is no doubt in the top 4. Putting Penn State over them was a mistake.”
