Clemson turned out its best performance of the season, Saturday, churning out 176 yards rushing and forcing three Notre Dame turnovers en route to a 31-23 victory over the 15th-ranked Irish.

Phil Mafah spearheaded the attack and set the tone, rushing for 76 of his career-high 186 yards in the opening quarter. The Tigers were laser-focused, playing a penalty-free game for the first time in more than 70 years. With the victory, Dabo Swinney has become Clemson’s all-time winning coach (166 career victories), passing Frank Howard.
