1999 Clemson Football Outlook

Aug. 11, 1999

Clemson ended its 1998 season with a 28-19 victory over South Carolina in a game that was televised by ESPN-2. That was Clemson’s 100th all-time victory in a game on television. Clemson will have a chance to enhance that total in 1999.

Television networks typically don’t announce their TV plans until 12 days prior to the game, but ESPN and ABC have declared some plans for next season. Three of Clemson’s games were designated for television this summer and 10 of the 11 Clemson games could be on live television this year.

Clemson’s first appearance on ABC will be September 11 when Virginia comes to town. That contest in Death Valley will kickoff at 3:30 PM and will be shown on a regional basis. The Virginia Tech game will be shown on ESPN to the entire nation on September 23. That contest will begin at 8:00 PM and will be a part of the network’s Thursday night package.

The October 23rd showdown between Clemson and Florida State featuring coaches Bobby Bowden and Tommy Bowden will be shown on ESPN and will have a 7:00 PM start.

Fans should watch their local listings for declarations of other Clemson games on television. Here is ESPN’s Thursday evening lineup for 1999. It features the appearance of five ACC teams. All games begin at 8:00 PM.
