From Clemson SID:

Further research has uncovered an instance when the University of Maryland defeated three straight top 25 opponents who were ranked in at least one of the two major polls. In 1984 Maryland defeated Miami (#6 in AP, 6 in UPI), Clemson (#20 in AP, unranked in UPI) and Virginia (ranked #17 in UPI, unranked in AP) on consecutive weekends November 10-24. Virginia was not ranked in AP entering that last game. The ACC media guide only lists games against AP ranked teams and that is how this was missed.

Clemson is the first ACC school to defeat three consecutive opponents ranked in the top 25 of both polls. Or, Clemson is the second ACC team to defeated three consecutive opponents ranked by at least one of the two major services.
