Today’s photo is of former Clemson quarterback Charlie Whitehurst picking up a first down at the end of the 2005 game in Columbia. This first down would prove to be the clinching moment in the win.

The two teams showed an unusual gesture of sportsmanship by meeting at midfield before the game to shake hands, putting the melee of 2004 behind them.

Clemson won this game 13-9, giving Charlie Whitehurst and undefeated record against USC in his 4 years at Clemson. The only Carolina quarterback to do so against the Tigers was Tommy Suggs, who led the Gamecocks to three victories in a row from 1968-1970.
