Clemson (11-2) capped another double-digit win season with a blitzing of North Carolina in the ACC Championship Game. The Tigers ripped off eight straight wins to start the season and were in perfect position for a seventh berth into the College Football Playoff. However, they were stopped in their tracks after a 35-7 loss to Notre Dame and ended the year with a loss to rival South Carolina. Running back Will Shipley finished the regular season with 1,092 yards and 14 touchdowns.
