As usual, thanks to the sports information directors throughout the league for this week’s batch of nifty notes.
ACC: The last time Clemson and Georgia Tech both started the season 5-0 was in 1948. The Tigers, coached by Frank Howard, and the Jackets, coached by Bobby Dodd, did not play each other in 1948. Clemson finished 11-0 and ranked 11th by AP, while Tech ended the year 7-3. Georgia Tech and Clemson are two of 15 remaining undefeated FBS schools and one of just eight teams with a 5-0 record. – Mike Finn
