Default Clemson has the most wins over Power 5 opponents

Early in his head coaching tenure, Dabo Swinney laid out his belief to then-Clemson Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips that the Tigers needed to add tough non-conference challenges on top of their tests in ACC play to serve as a foundation for the program's growth.

"I had a conversation with Terry Don and I was like, ‘Terry Don, I know we are not very good right now, but we need to play people because that is going to help me teach and help me develop the culture and the mindset that you have to have to win at the highest level,’" Swinney recounted prior to the 2018 season. "I didn’t think we had that, and that’s what we committed to. That’s what we’ve done.”

That scheduling philosophy and culture change has resonated in the Clemson program, and since 2013, no team can claim more wins against Power Five opponents than Clemson.

WINS AGAINST POWER FIVE OPPONENTS (SINCE 2013) Rank School Wins 1. Clemson 52 2. Alabama 50 Ohio St. 50 4. Oklahoma 45 5. Stanford 44 6. Florida St. 42 7. Southern California 40 8. Wisconsin 39 Georgia 39 10. Oklahoma St. 37 Michigan St. 37
