Well if we go for the importance it would be a tie with the two Nat. Championship games

Neb. in Miami and Bama in Tampa.

if we go for regular season wins for me beating N.D. in 1979 at South Bend was big. Beating ND at ND with the name they carry and I think it was the 1st time in years the seniors lost their final home game, IIRC. Not sure if I do.

ND 1979

then

UGA in 1977 - cigar game - then there are several more UGA wins but using just one I would take the 1977 game

UNC in Chapel Hill in 1980 for the ACCC.

FSU in 2016 with DW and moving Clemson to the front of FSU in the ACC.

The debut of the orange britches outside of the Valley... honorable mention for a 45-0 beatdown in the hen house

4th and 17 to McKelvey, saw that one in person... barely made Will's list. As I recall, Tech was ranked 9th going into that game. From my vantage point, I had a dead on view of two yards beyond the North end line. I also saw the Tech student slap Woody on the head with a pom pom after he scored the game winner.

I have not hugged as many people wearing orange as I did in the ten minutes following that touchdown, and I'm still trying to catch up.

89 FSU when we beat the brakes off that war chant that later became the Atlanta braves call sign

For me it is the win in South Bend. I painted the final score on the side of a small barn we had in our backyard. I was encouraged by my Dad to paint over it, but for many years you could still see the outline of the final score. A great reminder of a great win.

+2 -- such a sweet victory after "the play which shall not be named" the previous year. That one still hurts a little, honestly.

I guess you didn't look at the article? I state in there that the two national title games don't count as road wins because they were neutral site games. Only true road games and its vs. ranked opponents.

at UGA from 1977 is on the list as is at UNC in 1981, not 1980. I think you are thinking about the 1981 game. The 1980 game was payed at Death Valley and Clemson lost.

at FSU in 2016 is on my list.

at Notre Dame in 1979 did not make the cut because ND was not ranked.

Article missed - Clemson 45 scu 0 in 1989 has to be in top 10.

2009 vs Miami. Parker underrated IMO. Helped start this dominance.

2011 vs Va Tech. Surprised even me. Boyd overrated IMO.

Sammy vs MD. Sammy’s freshman year. Solidified greatest freshman ever in Clemson history. IMO.

Recent memories ^.

South Carolina was not ranked that year. That's why it did not make the cut. All of those games I have are against ranked opponents on the road.
