CLEMSON – The Clemson Tigers dismantled South Carolina State 73-7 Saturday afternoon in Death Valley – the second-largest margin of victory in Memorial Stadium history.

With such a dominating performance, there were several interesting statistical oddities that came out of the game.

73: Clemson scored 73 points in Saturday’s win – the most points since the 1981 game against Wake Forest, in which the Tigers scored 82.

66: The margin of victory was 66 points – the seventh largest margin of victory in school history, tying the 66-0 victory over Presbyterian College in 1957.

7: The Bulldogs actually gained 89 yards on the ground but lost 82 yards, giving them a grand total of seven total yards rushing for the game.
