No. 2 Clemson's 35-6 win against Duke on Saturday was historic as it was the Tigers' 51st win for the senior class.
The 51 wins is a new school and ACC record surpassing Clemson's 50 wins by last year's senior class.
"To be the only group to have won 51 games in four years is incredible," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said during a postgame interview. "They've made my job easy."
The Tigers have opened a season 11-0 for the fourth time in program history, joining 11-0 starts in 1948, 1981 and 2015. The Tigers have also won the first 11 games of a season for the second time under Swinney.
