In front of SU’s largest crowd of the season (42,475 fans) the Orange offense totaled 440 yards and three touchdowns. In the game’s final quarter, a failed Clemson fake punt ended its last possession with more than 6 minutes remaining.  On SU’s final drive, Eric Dungey sealed the upset with a third down conversion on the ground.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textPaul Schlesinger | Staff PhotographerNov. 18, 2017 – As a sophomore, Justyn Knight finished fourth at the national cross country championship.
