November 2nd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

1969 Clemson vs. Georgia

Today’s photos are from the 1969 Clemson/Georgia Game in Death Valley. The game was played on September 27th, 1969 and Georgia would go on to a 30-0 win over the Tigers.

Mike Cavan was at the QB position for UGA that day. Cavan went on to become the head coach at Valdosta State University (1986–1991), East Tennessee State University (1992–1996), and Southern Methodist University (1997–2001), compiling a career college football record of 89–83–2.

Cavan was also an assistant coach at Georgia from 1977 to 1985, a part of some memorable Clemson/UGA games during that era.

While jerseys from that era were typically plain, I think Clemson had some really sharp looking uniforms in that era.
