37 Days Until Kickoff!
Dark Territory Clemson Letterman Photo Of The Day
Rodney Williams lettered at Clemson from 1985 through 1988.
Williams took over the starting job from Randy Anderson in 1985, and never looked back, becoming a 4 year starter for Clemson during the program’s most successful era.
In his final home game on November 19, 1988, Williams led the Tigers to a 29-10 win at Memorial Stadium, while also avenging a 20-7 loss to the Gamecocks the year before in Columbia.
The Columbia native was taunted by the Gamecock fans in that loss. But in 1988, Williams threw for 192 yards and rushed for 38 more, including the game-clinching touchdown for the 15th-ranked Tigers. It was Williams’ 31st-career victory. He later went on to get win No. 32 with a victory over Oklahoma in the Citrus Bowl. The 32 wins are a Clemson record for a quarterback.
Rodney is the most successful quarterback in Clemson football history.
