Clemson, SC

No. 16 Clemson- 34, UGA- 3



The Tigers were riding a three-game winning streak and were 16th in the country when an old nemesis came to town on October 6, 1990. Clemson had not played Georgia in three years, when David Treadwell booted a 21-yard field goal with two seconds to play for a 21-20 victory at Death Valley in 1987.



Everyone was fired up for the renewal of what was arguably the best rivalry in college football in the 1980s. During an 11-season stretch from 1977-’87, Clemson and Georgia battled to a 5-5-1 draw. All but two of the games were decided by a touchdown or less.



And though Clemson was still Clemson, Georgia was struggling with second-year head coach Ray Goff and was not the same old Georgia, though they were 3-1 heading into the game that afternoon in Clemson. Regardless, it was Georgia and the Clemson players who were on the team from the state of Georgia wanted to beat the Bulldogs very badly.

So, they did.



Georgia did not penetrate the Clemson 25-yard line all afternoon. The Bulldogs lone score came on a drive that went for minus-six yards following a Clemson turnover, which led to a field goal. Georgia was just 1-for-13 on third down and had just 81 total yards.

On offense, Georgia native Stacy Long had six knockdown blocks to pave the way for a Clemson running game that racked 341 yards. Kicker Chris Gardocki, who grew up in Stone Mountain, Ga., kicked a record-tying four field goals and averaged 42 yards a punt.

The Clemson offense controlled the football for 35 minutes as the Tigers rolled to a 34-3 victory. The 31-point margin of victory was Clemson’s largest in the rivalry since 1905.

Georgia went on to finish 1990 season 4-7, one of the worst seasons for the program in decades.
