WINNING SEASONS THE NORM
• The Tigers have had a winning record every year since 1965.
• With its 31-16 record in the 2016 season, Clemson is guaranteed a winning record for the 52nd season in a row.
• Clemson’s 52-year streak is the third-longest active streak in the nation, trailing two ACC schools (Florida State 69, Miami (Fla.) 59).
• Clemson has had a non-losing record, which includes seasons with equal number of wins and losses, every season since 1958.
• Bill Wilhelm took over as head coach of the Clemson program in 1958, therefore the Tigers have not had a losing record since he took over.

BACK-TO-BACK TOP-10 SERIES WINS
• Clemson won back-to-back series against No. 3/4 Florida State and No. 9 NC State in May, meaning Clemson won two top-10 series in a row.

• In 1994, Clemson won two of three games against No. 3 Miami (Fla.) and two of three games against No. 2 Florida State.
