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.

wasn’t called into action Saturday afternoon, except to kickoff. The last time Clemson did not record a punt was in the 2009 ACC Championship game against Georgia Tech. Oddly enough, neither team punted in that game.

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.

7-7-5: South Carolina State had seven kickoff returns, the same as the total rushing yards and two more than they had first downs (five).
