season against the Tennessee Volunteers. That game resulted in the weirdest final score I have ever seen in a footsball game.
The game ended in a FIVE TO FIVE TIE!
I have never, in all the years, recalled seeing another football score of 5-5, at ANY point in a game.
To say football powers were different back then would be an understatement. Take a look at the rest of these scores.
Clemson 5 Tennessee 5 (At Bowman Field, Clemson, SC) Clemson 35 Georgia 0 (IN ATHENS!) Clemson 25 Alabama 0 (At the State Fairgrounds in Cootlumbia!) Clemson 26 Auburn 0 (IN AUBURN!) Clemson 0 VANDERBILT 41 (In Nashville) Clemson 10 Georgia Tech 17 (At Grant Field-That place has ALWAYS been trouble for Clemson!)
So, a final winning season record 3-2-1 for first year coach Ed Cochems, competing in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
