The pre-game rubbing of Howard's Rock isn't the only important tradition the Clemson football program boasts. The Tigers also have a "graveyard" near the football facilities with tombstones dedicated to every major road victory the team has notched over a ranked opponent over the years. While this past year's Orange Bowl against Ohio State wasn't technically an away game (it was played in Miami, therefore neutral for both squads), the program is treating it as such.
Dabo Swinney and some of his players did the honor of unveiling the new landmark before the first spring football practice.

For the record, Clemson did the same to commemorate last year's win over LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
Last season was certainly a special one for Clemson, as the program won its first-and-only BCS bowl game of the 16-year era. The Tigers will try to build on that success in 2014.
