Clemson’s win over Alabama has officially been immortalized.

The Tigers added a tombstone for the last-second National Championship game win over the No. 1 Crimson Tide to the graveyard for ranked wins on Wednesday.


Clemson’s graveyard, which tracks wins dating back to 1948, has gained prominence in recent years as the Tigers’ success has grown. The program adds a tombstone for every win over a ranked team that comes either at a neutral site or on the road.

In addition to beating Alabama, the Tigers also beat Florida State on the road and Virginia Tech (ACC Championship) and Ohio State (Fiesta Bowl) on neutral sites. All three opponents were also ranked at the time of Clemson’s win.
