September 18, 1965
Death Valley, SC



The 1965 season got off to a good start at home with a win over NC State. On their second series, the Tigers moved the ball 75 yards in 13 plays, with Thomas Ray scoring from two yards out.



While NC State took advantage of a Clemson fumble to score a tying touchdown after a 26-yard drive in the second quarter, the Tigers’ steady play in the second half netted a second touchdown by Ray from the five and a diving score from the two by fullback Bo Ruffner. The final score was Clemson 21, NC State 7.



The 1965 Tigers featured four First-Team All-ACC players in Johnny Boyette (OT), Bill Hecht (LB), Hugh Mauldin (TB) and Butch Sursavage (DE). Sursavage was just the third sophomore in school history to be named First-Team All-ACC. Thomas Ray would be named the team's MVP

Clemson and NC State would go on to share the 1965 ACC Title.

Sursavage was a great player until he tore up his knee. He was never the same after that.
