Clemson Injuries:

Jermyn Chester, Starting OG, probable, surgery for knee cartilage


Travis Zachery, starting tailback, probable, sprained ankle vs. Duke

Jason Holloman, starting defensive tackle, probable, knee and ankle

Other Notes: This is the latest in a season that two undefeated teams

have ever met in Death Valley. Never before have two undefeated teams

with at least four wins met at Clemson Memorial Stadium. ...Keith Adams

needs one tackle for loss to break Anthony Simmons school record for

consecutive games with at least one tackle for loss. Adams and Simmons

both have streaks of 17 straight games....Travis Zachery needs three

touchdowns to tie Lester Brown's career touchdown record. Zachery has 29

and Brown had 32 between 1976-79...Clemson's #5 national ranking is its

highest since September of 1988 when Clemson was third heading into the

Florida State game...Clemson quarterback Woodrow Dantzler needs just 21

yards rushing to break Steve Fuller's season record for yards rushing by a

quarterback. Fuller had 649 in 1978 and Dantzler already has

629....Dantzler has 520 yards rushing in his last three games. The Clemson

record for rushing yards in four consecutive games is 599 by Raymond

Priester in 1995.
