James Davis

Today’s photo is of James Davis, the last Clemson Tiger to lead Clemson to a win in Doak Campbell Stadium vs. Florida State.

Davis scored on a one yard run with just 8 seconds left to lead Clemson to a 27-20 victory.

Clemson held FSU to 204 yards of total offense, and it was just the third home ACC loss for FSU in 57 home ACC games.

Senior Gaines Adams had seven tackles, including 2.5 sacks to key the Clemson defense.

But Davis stole the show on this night by taking a quick snap that caught the FSU defense off-guard and ran inside the FSU 5 yard line, setting up the touchdown run two plays later.
