PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE EARLY!

The Clemson Athletic Department and IPTAY are looking forward to hosting Louisville this Saturday in Memorial Stadium for Family Weekend. Clemson Athletics encourages all Tiger fans to arrive to the stadium early to watch, “The most exciting 25 seconds in college football,” as the Tigers run down the Hill. Gates open at 1:30 p.m., so be sure to be in your seats and be loud!

This week, The Greenville Health System Tiger Tailgate Show begins at 12:30 p.m. on the lawn of Littlejohn Coliseum, featuring a pregame radio show with tons of giveaways and inflatables for everyone to enjoy!

Beginning at 2 p.m., Tiger Band hosts its “90 Minutes Before Kickoff” mini-concert at the Outdoor Theater (between Sikes Hall and Cooper Library). At the conclusion, the band begins its traditional march down Fort Hill Street and makes its way to the West Endzone of Memorial Stadium.

We encourage everyone to arrive early and proceed to Lot 5 to welcome the team, as Tiger Walk is scheduled for 1:20 p.m.

TIGER TIDBITS

  • Including today, each of the next three Tiger opponents in Memorial Stadium will be making their first trip to Clemson for a football game. Louisville is Saturday’s opponent, and this will be the first meeting anywhere between the two schools. Clemson and Louisville were members of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association between 1914-22, but never faced each other.

  • Louisville is the 54th different team to visit Memorial Stadium, and the Tigers are 39-13-1 against those teams when the visitor makes its first appearance.

  • Louisville leads the nation in total defense (230.2). It is also first in rushing defense (58.3), first in interceptions (12), second in yards per play allowed (3.75) and second in yards per carry allowed (2.01).

  • Graduate Vic Beasley tied the Clemson career sack record in grand style last Saturday when he had a sack, caused a fumble, recovered the fumble and scored a touchdown, all on the same play in the win over NC State. That was Beasley’s 28th career sack, tied for the most in Clemson history with Michael Dean Perry (1984-87) and the late Gaines Adams (2003-06).
