A little after noon today, every single member of the Clemson coaching staff, support personnel, and players will make their way down the Tigers’ iconic hill before the game against Syracuse, except for one. Ajou Ajou will hang back, run down the hill last, and do a perfect split in mid-air as he hits the bump about two-thirds of the way down the hill.
Syracuse has been a thorn in Clemson's side over the years. The last time they met in Death Valley, the Tigers eked out a 27-23 win as 24-point favorites on Sept. 29, 2018, led by Chase Brice, who is now at Duke. Before that, the Orange bumped off the then-No. 2 Tigers 27-24 in Syracuse on Oct. 13, 2017. Breaking down the game this time around with our picks.
