On This Date: 1995 Clemson- 24 Georgia Tech- 3

Posted: Oct 28, 2020, 2:22 PM

Atlanta, GA

In 1995 Tommy West's second Tiger team rode into Atlanta unranked at 4-3 to take on George O'Leary's 4-3 Yellow Jackets on homecoming weekend.

Just three days before Halloween that year, Clemson's ground game was frighteningly effective all afternoon against LB Keith Brooking and the Tech defense, as stud RB Raymond Priester ran for 78yds on twenty carries, while FB Emory Smith racked up 100yds on twenty-six carries to pace a powerful ground attack that churned out 197yds in the game.

QB Nealon Greene completed 10/13 passes for 167yds, and WR Antwuan Wyatt hauled in six catches for 123yds and two touchdowns, one a 61yd bomb, the second from 12yds out, putting the Tigers up 21-3 heading into the half. Clemson rode its power running game and a dominant defense led by LB Anthony Simmons and S Brian Dawkins the rest of the way to gain a 24-3 victory, ruining Tech's homecoming festivities and stealing part of the Sunday Atlanta Journal-Constitution's headlines from the World Series Champion Atlanta Braves.
