Clemson vs. Duke Postponed

Sept. 12, 2001

Clemson, SC – The Clemson vs. Duke football game scheduled for this Saturday, September 15th, has been postponed. All Atlantic Coast Conference athletic events through Saturday were postponed, ACC Commissioner John Swofford announced on Wednesday. The action is the result of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington on Tuesday. The makeup date for the Clemson vs. Duke game will be determined at a later date.

All events surrounding this weekend, including Clemson Hall of Fame induction and the ground breaking ceremonies at Littlejohn Coliseum, are also postponed.

“We have made this action as a conference,” said Robinson. “Our prayers go out to the families who suffered significant loss as a result of the terrorist actions earlier this week. I will discuss a new date for the game with (Duke Athletic Director) Joe Alleva this week and we plan to have an announcement on the new date as soon as possible.”

This is just the second time in history that Clemson has been involved in a game that has been postponed. Clemson’s November 23, 1963 football game with South Carolina was postponed due to the death of former President John F. Kennedy. That game was rescheduled for the following Thursday, Thanksgiving Day.

Clemson’s women’s soccer match with Florida State, scheduled for Sunday, has been postponed until Monday. The time for that match will be determined on Thursday.
