Clemson vs. Duke Moved To December 1

Sept. 17, 2001

Clemson, SC – The Clemson vs. Duke football game, originally scheduled for September 15th at Clemson, will be played December 1 at Clemson Memorial Stadium. The contest was postponed due to the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington last Tuesday. The game will kickoff at 1:00 PM.

This will be the latest Clemson has played a regular season game since 1956 when the Tigers defeated Furman at Death Valley, 28-7 on December 1. It will be just the sixth regular season game in the month of December in Clemson football history. The latest Clemson has had a regular season game is December 8, a 1928 loss to The Citadel in Charleston.

The change in schedule means that Duke and Clemson will meet in the major sports of football and men’s basketball on consecutive days. The two schools will meet in men’s basketball at Cameron Indoor Stadium on December 2nd. That will be the earliest conference basketball game for the Tigers since 1966. Clemson played at North Carolina to open the 1966-67 season on December 1.

The ACC also announced Monday that the Georgia Tech at Florida State football game will also be played on December 1.
