(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are from November 1st, 1969 and are photos of a rainy game against Maryland that would prove to be Frank Howard’s last time roaming the sidelines as head coach at Clemson.

Maryland was not very good in 1969, and Clemson drilled the Terps 40-0. Clemson scored in every possible way, including a safety.

The crowd was small that Saturday due to the weather, only 22,802. But those in attendance witnessed something other than Clemson's 350th win. They didn't know it at the time, but those that were in attendance had also seen an era in Clemson football come to an end.


Charlie Waters (in hood) was a pivotal part of the 1969 season and in this game vs. Maryland.
