Helmet Stickers: No. 3 Clemson 52, Wake Forest 3

The win marks Clemson’s 22nd ACC win in a row as the team was dominant on both sides of the ball throughout the entirety of the game.
On the offensive side of the ball, Clemson totaled 516 yards on the day as they continued their hot streak throwing and running the ball.
On the other side of the ball, the Clemson defense allowed just 105 total yards in the game, silencing one of the best quarterbacks in the nation in Jamie Newman.
Following each game, The Clemson Insider gives out helmet stickers to players who contributed to the game with outstanding individual performances.
Sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawrence put together one of his best performances of the season against Wake Forest, completing 21 of 27 passes for 272 yards and four touchdowns. This was Lawrence’s first four touchdown passing game of his career and marks his fourth straight game without an interception.
Muse set the tone early on senior day as he picked off Wake Forest quarterback Jamie Newman on his first pass attempt of the game. The senior safety also had a nice day pressuring the quarterback with 4 total tackles, 2 tackles for loss and a sack in the game.
