Clemson has added two more tombstones to its infamous football graveyard, as can be seen on two posts to the football program’s official Twitter.
And to whom do those tombstones belong? Why, none other than North Carolina and Oklahoma.

The 2015 season was a big one for the Tigers, who defeated a tough North Carolina Tar Heels team in the ACC Championship game 45-37 to not only remain undefeated, but also ensure a No. 1 seeding in the College Football Playoff. It was there that Clemson was matched with No. 4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl semifinal and the Tigers laid waste to the Sooners 37-17 to move on to the national championship game against Alabama.
The Tigers would go on to lose to the Crimson Tide 45-40 in a hard-fought battle, but there’s no denying that Clemson’s season as a whole was highly successful. On top of that, they got to add Oklahoma to the graveyard for the second year in a row, having also defeated them in the 2014 Russell Athletic Bowl.
Say what you may about the graveyard tradition, but there’s no denying that it’s a fun one to follow.
