Clemson Flashback: '09 Tigers defeat Miami 40-37 in OT

By

Clemson got its first major win under Dabo Swinney on October 24, 2009 when they knocked off No. 9 Miami at what is now Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.

The Tigers won the game, 40-37, in overtime when Jacoby Ford caught a touchdown pass from Kyle Parker. It was Clemson’s first win over a ranked opponent in the Swinney era.

The win sparked a run that allowed the Tigers to advance the program to its first ACC Championship Game appearance later that year.
