Miami vs Clemson Revisited
1,498 days after Miami and Clemson last met, the Tigers (3-3, 2-2 ACC) will visit the 'Canes (5-1, 2-1) today at 3:30pm at LandShark Stadium.
The Sporting News' take on the meeting can be read here.
On September 17, 2005 in Death Valley, the 'Canes needed three overtimes to defeat the Tigers 36-30.
Tyrone Moss (above) scored the eventual game winner on a 25-yard touchdown run in the third overtime. Moss bounced out to the right side for his scoring run and safety Kenny Phillips intercepted Charlie Whitehurst when the Tigers got their possession in the third overtime.
Moss finished with 139 yards rushing and three touchdowns, two in overtime. His 1-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter put Miami up 20-10, while his 3-yard scoring run gave the Hurricanes a brief 27-20 lead in the first overtime.
