• The Tigers own a 7-2 advantage in the series. Three of their victories have come in the Carrier Dome. 
• The Orange beat the Tigers in 2017, 27-24 in a thrilling game in the Carrier Dome. The squads entered the fourth quarter tied at 24-24. Syracuse gained the lead with 9:41 remaining when kicker Cole Murphy nailed a 30-yard field goal to secure the Orange win.
• Syracuse and Clemson first met in the 1996 Gator Bowl where the Orange posed a 41-0 victory.
• The squads have met each year since the Orange joined the ACC in 2013.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
• Syracuse is in action at home on Friday night for the second time this season.
• The Orange have won six of their last eight Friday games and holds a 7-3 Friday record under head coach Dino Babers. The streak includes ‘Cuse’s 27-24 win against No. 2 Clemson in 2017 and the 2018 Camping World victory against West Virginia.
• ‘Cuse is 16-6 (.727) in weekday games since beating Kansas State in the 2010 Pinstripe Bowl.

SHRADER JOINS ELITE COMPANY
• QB Garrett Shrader  scored one rushing touchdown against Wake Forest. He now has eight rushing TDs this season, which ranks 11th in the nation and fifth among quarterbacks.
• Shrader rushed for a career-high 178 yards against the Demon Deacons. It marked his second-straight 100+ rushing performance
• He is just the third Syracuse quarterback since 1979 to post back-to-back 100-yard rushing games. Bill Hurley was the first to accomplish the feat in 1979 (Northwestern, Washington State), while Eric Dungey matched Hurley’s performance in 2017 (Miami, Florida State). 
• Shrader’s 178 yards rushing are the second-highest single-game total for a ‘Cuse quarterback. Dungey rushed for 200 yards against Western Michigan in 2018. His total also ties for 17th on the ACC record list for rushing yards by a quarterback in a single game.

TUCKER ON RECORD SETTING TRACK
• Freshman RB Sean Tucker is on pace to have one of the most prolific single-season rushing totals in school history.  
• Tucker has 791 yards rushing on 133 carries through six games.
• Joe Morris is the only other Orange running backs to have more yards through six games.
• Morris had 827 yards through six games in 1979 when he set the program single-season record of 1,372.
• Overall, Orange rushers have topped the 1,000 yard mark in a season 16 times.

OFFENSIVE OUTBURST
• Syracuse’s offense produced 514 yards of total offense against Wake Forest. That total is the most against an ACC opponent since posting 559 at Boston College in 2018.
• The Orange’s 354 yards on the ground were the most during head coach Dino Babers‘ tenure and the most for ‘Cuse since 2014.
•  Syracuse is averaging 242.8 rushing yards per game, which ranks 11th in the nation.

A WIN WOULD … 
• Improve Dino Babers‘ record to 28-39 as head coach of the Orange.
• Improve Syracuse’s weekday record to 17-7 since the 2010 Pinstripe Bowl.
• Improve Syracuse’s record at home to 3-2 this season.
• Give Syracuse its 740th all-time victory (includes 11 wins from 2004-06 that were vacated by the NCAA). The Orange currently rank 22nd on the FBS ledger of winningest programs. Syracuse is one of 31 FBS schools to have accumulated 700+ wins.
• Make Syracuse the only team with multiple regular-season victories over Clemson since the start of the 2016 season.
