Tigers Run Past 'Decs, 28-10
In 1991 Ken Hatfield's second group of Tigers came into its annual bout with Wake Forest at 4-1-1 and #16 in the country, while Bill Dooley's fifth and penultimate Demon Deacons team came in 1-6 and in the throes of a six-game losing streak.
Quarterback DeChane Cameron guided the Tigers' option attack that included running backs Rodney Blunt, Ronald Williams, and Rudy Harris, as well as speedy receivers Terry Smith and Larry Ryan, behind an offensive line led by Bruce Bratton, Jeb Flesch, Stacy Seegars, and Curtis Whitley.
The defense boasted a roster chock-full of stars, including defensive linemen Rob Bodine, Brentson Buckner, and Chester McGlockton, linebackers Levon Kirkland, Ed McDaniel, Wayne Simmons, and Ashley Sheppard, and safety Robert O'Neal. Clemson ended the day on the correct end of a 28-10 ledger, and would finish the season as ACC champions at 9-2-1 (6-0-1) and ranked #17/#18 in the AP/Coaches polls.
