Here’s why Clemson’s band is talk of college football

Before Texas lost and before Florida-Michigan and Alabama-Florida State kick off, the Clemson band made its presence known Saturday.

On the field, Kelly Bryant passed for 236 yards and a touchdown and ran for 77 more yards in his first game as Clemson’s starting quarterback and the No. 5 Tigers beat Kent State 56-3 on Saturday.

But, before the game, it was all about Clemson’s national title from last season.

The Tiger mascot ran the championship trophy down the hill before the game, the school unveiled three different signs around the stadium marking the playoff appearance and title, and the band did a “31-0″ formation” to honor the score in Clemson’s demolition of Ohio State in the national semifinals.

The Tigers then went on to defeat Alabama for the national championship.

The band also spelled out the name “Dabo” for Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, and then spelled out the word “champs.”
