Clemson had claimed to be the first ACC team to knock off three ranked teams in a row
Further research has uncovered an instance when the University of Maryland defeated three straight Top 25 opponents who were ranked in at least one of the two major polls. In 1984, Maryland defeated Miami (No. 6 in AP, No. 6 in UPI), Clemson (No. 20 in AP, unranked in UPI) and Virginia (ranked No. 17 in UPI, unranked in AP) on consecutive weekends, Nov. 10-24. Virginia was not ranked in the AP poll entering that last game. The ACC media guide only lists games against AP ranked teams and that is how this was missed.
We remember that little Miami, as the greatest comeback. The Men of Byrd can become the first team to knock off three consecutive top 25 teams multiple times
