On This Date: 1978 (20)Clemson- 33 NC State- 10

10/28/78
Raleigh, NC





In 1978 Charley Pell's final Clemson squad came into the Textile Bowl at 5-1 and #20 in the nation to take on Bo Rein's 5-1 but unranked NC State Wolfpack in Raleigh. Led by QB Steve Fuller, RB Lester Brown, and WRs Jerry Butler and Dwight Clark on offense, along with LBs Bubba Brown and Randy Scott on defense, the Tigers completed a 33-10 massacre of the ‘Pack. Clemson would finish the 11-1 (6-0 ACC) ACC championship season off in style by beating Woody Hayes's last Ohio State Buckeye team 17-15 in Jacksonville, FL at the Gator Bowl to end up at #6 in the final polls. NC State would complete a 9-3 season by beating Pittsburgh in the Tangerine Bowl to finish fifteenth in the nation.

The famous "Our Brown (Lester) is better than your Brown (Ted) game. However, the picture of Steve Fuller is not from 1978. In '78 the helmets had navy stripes flanking the white stripe, and white facemasks. That picture must be from '76.

oh you are right about the picture. Easy identifier is the Face Masks. 1978 helmets went to the White face masks

2 things I vehemently remember from that game was Bubba Brown just absolutely destroying an NC State receiver that came across the middle, and the late Bo Rein saying after the game "they just whipped our butts". The game was actually on television also. A rarity in those days!


"The Rubber Duck" Lester Brown, as Jim Phillips referred to
