Dabo Swinney, Clemson enjoy statistical feat during milestone victory
Dabo Swinney has had an up and down season this year, but on Saturday the Clemson head coach had much to celebrate.
Clemson picked up a huge win over Notre Dame to bounce back from a pair of losses and possibly reverse the course of the Tigers’ season.
But the game marked more than just another tally in the win column.
It gave Swinney his 166th career win at Clemson, which surpasses Frank Howard for the most in program history. Howard was Clemson’s head coach from 1940 to 1969.
Swinney, who has coached at Clemson since 2009, has a record of 166-43 during his time with the Tigers.
Clemson also reached another statistical feat during the win over Notre Dame.
The Tigers committed 0 penalties in the game, which is their first time doing so in at least 25 seasons.
