Clemson's record versus Notre Dame

by -

Notre Dame joined the ACC today. Below is a rundown of Clemson’s record against Notre Dame in all sports. Notre Dame holds an 18-8 advantage in all sports, including a 2-1 Notre Dame win in men’s soccer earlier this year.

The two schools have met the most times in women’s tennis, 10 times, including the 2009 NCAA Tournament.

The two schools have met in eight sports overall: football (1-1) , women's fencing (0-3) , men's fencing (0-2) , wrestling (2-0), women's tennis (2-8), baseball (0-1), Men’s soccer (2-1) and volleyball (1-2). Clemson no longer has a men's or women's fencing team . Both Clemson and Notre Dame no longer have a wrestling program.

The most famous meeting between the two schools in any sport took place on November 12, 1977 when a pair of top 15 football teams met in Clemson's Death Valley. A fifth-ranked Notre Dame football team led by Joe Montana, defeated a 15th-ranked Clemson team led by Steve Fuller, 21-17. Notre Dame went on to win the National Championship. Thirty-six players in that game went on to play in the NFL.

Clemson came back to win at Notre Dame two years later, 16-10. It was just the second time in the last 40 years (1940-79) that Notre Dame's seniors lost their last home game. Billy Lott scored a touchdown late in the game to give Clemson the win and overcome a 10-0 deficit.

The two schools have never met in men’s or women’s basketball.
