10/28/1978
Raleigh, NC

Seems appropriate with Travis Etienne staring down NC State's Ted Brown's ACC Rushing Record. On this day, Lester Brown > Ted Brown

In 1978 Charley Pell's final Clemson squad came into the Textile Bowl at 5-1 and #20 in the nation to take on Bo Rein's 5-1 but unranked NC State Wolfpack in Raleigh.



Led by QB Steve Fuller, RB Lester Brown, and WRs Jerry Butler and Dwight Clark on offense, along with LBs Bubba Brown and Randy Scott on defense, the Tigers completed a 33-10 massacre of the ‘Pack. Clemson would finish the 11-1 (6-0 ACC) ACC championship season off in style by beating Woody Hayes's last Ohio State Buckeye team 17-15 in Jacksonville, FL at the Gator Bowl to end up at #6 in the final polls.



NC State would complete a 9-3 season by beating Pittsburgh in the Tangerine Bowl to finish fifteenth in the nation.

One of the first road games I went to. The Tiger fans were so loud the NC State QB had to call a timeout.
