→ Andrea Adelson explains why Death Valley gives Clemson Tigers big advantage against Florida State

The Seminoles have not won at Clemson since 2001, but they are not alone in their Death Valley struggles. Swinney is 18-2 in ACC home games (.900), the highest winning percentage in league history. He recently moved ahead of former Clemson coach Ken Hatfield, who had a 12-1-1 record at home against league foes from 1990 to ’93. Bobby Bowden is third on the all-time list for home winning percentage at .861, with a 62-10 record in home ACC games at Florida State.

I did not realize Clemson had such a streak over FSU in Death Valley. I guess this make me feel a little better about Saturday’s game, but I am still quite nervous.1

  1. I cannot imagine what I am going to feel like if the Red Sox and Clemson both have 8 o’clock games on Saturday night.
