It marked the first time Clemson had six linemen earn first-team all-conference honors. The previous high was just four set eight previous seasons, including 2016. It was the second consecutive year Clemson had three starting offensive linemen earn first-team honors. Crowder and Hyatt both were first-team selections last year as well. It was the first All-ACC selection for Falcinelli, who is in his first year as a starter. - Clemson Football

11/27/17 - 2017 ACC JACOBS BLOCKING TROPHY AWARD WINNER: Clemson junior offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt has been voted the winner of the 2017 Jacobs Blocking Trophy, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Sunday. The Jacobs Blocking Trophy has been awarded annually since 1953 to the player selected the most outstanding blocker in the ACC by a poll of the league's head coaches and defensive coordinators. Hyatt becomes the eighth student-athlete from Clemson to receive the honor and the first since offensive guard John Phillips in 1987. "Mitch is very deserving of this award," said Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney. "I was surprised to find out that a Clemson player had not won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy since 1987. But what Mitch has accomplished this year and over the last three years has been significant, and winning this award just adds to his significant resume. "He has been so consistent in everything he does. We have only lost three games in the three years he has been in our starting lineup, and he has a lot to do with that."
Hyatt, a 6-foot-5, 295-pound native of Suwanee, Georgia, is a three-year starter for the Tigers. A third-team All-ACC selection as a freshman two years ago and a first-team honoree last season. The standout left tackle earned consecutive ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors, first on Oct. 30 for his play in the Tigers' win over Georgia Tech, and again on Nov. 6 following Clemson's road victory at NC State. In each of those contests, Hyatt graded out at 93 percent while delivering five knockdown blocks without allowing a sack. Hyatt amassed 15 total points in the coaches' voting to capture the 64th ACC Jacobs Blocking Trophy (no award was given in 1996). Virginia Tech's Wyatt Teller placed second with 12 points, while Pitt's Brian O'Neill was third with 10. A total of 23 players earned at least one first-, second- or third-place vote. - ACC Football

More importantly, he did not allow ACC sack leader Bradley Chubb of NC State to record one during Saturday's game.

Hyatt did not give up a sack, and the five knockdown blocks tied for the most by a Clemson offensive lineman this year. Hyatt was a big reason Clemson ran 78 plays and had 428 yards of total offense – 221 rushing and 207 passing. - ACC Football
