Clemson moves to 5-3 after the big Homecoming win against Coastal Carolina on Saturday. In true Clemson football style it was pouring down rain in Death Valley. This seemed to work in our favor against Coastal, who is not used to the inclement weather and still can not seem to win a game regardless.  

Since it was Halloween there were quite a few people dressed up in costumes in the stadium, which made it pretty interesting to people watch. The game looked like it was going to be a shut out, and all though it was all Clemson for four quarters the fans stayed pretty interested.

In Saturday's game three different people threw for a touchdown including Kyle Parker, Jacoby Ford, and Willy Korn. This was the first time since the Tigers' 1984 Homecoming game that three different people threw for a touchdown.  

This winning streak has definitely put the Tigers in the right state of mind. The next three games are against ACC teams including next week's night game against Florida State.  

The Seminoles have had a rocky season so far and are currently 4-4 overall, 2-3 against ACC teams. Last year when the Tigers travelled to Tallahassee the scene was not too pretty, hopefully this weekend we can strike some revenge and come out on top.
