We have a great opportunity to showcase our spirit and enthusiasm to Georgia State fans this weekend for Military Appreciation Day. We encourage every Tiger fan to wear purple!


Saturday we celebrate Military Appreciation Day in Memorial Stadium. The theme of this year’s event is a salute to the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. Throughout the game there will be tributes to those who have served in Vietnam.

The pregame show includes Tiger Band with its patriotic set. At the conclusion of the National Anthem, there will be a flyover by Post World War II Warbird planes. Keep an eye to the sky following the Clemson Alma Mater, as two members of the Special Forces Association Parachute Team from Fort Bragg, N.C. enter the stadium.

Ingame military recognitions include the introduction of Military VIPs, Hero-of-the-Game, Vietnam POWs, Wounded Warriors, Honor Flight and a tribute to Saturday’s “Purple Out.”

Prior to halftime, an announcement will be made for all Vietnam veterans to make their way down to the field. During halftime, Tiger Band will play the Armed Forces Medley, and all veterans and active-duty military members are asked to stand to be recognized when their branch’s song is played. Vietnam veterans will be recognized in the West endzone by branch during this time as well.

Families of fallen soldiers will also be introduced at halftime. A 21-gun salute will follow along with the playing of “Taps.”

For more information on all presentations and detailed bios, visit

The Clemson University Athletic Department thanks all members of the military, veterans and families of fallen soldiers for their commitment and sacrifice.


  • Clemson is celebrating Senior Day on Saturday. It is not the final home game, as the Tigers host South Carolina on November 29. But with 28 seniors going through the ceremony, Head Coach Dabo Swinney wanted to use as much time as possible to honor his seniors.

  • Clemson’s defense is among the best in the nation and among the best in school history. The Tigers lead the nation in third-down conversion percentage defense (25.7), tackles for loss per game (10.0), yardage on tackles for loss (457) and yardage on sacks (312). The Tigers are second in the nation in total defense (262.1) and second in sacks per game (3.8).

  • Jeff Jagodzinski is the offensive coordinator at Georgia State, and he has a coaching history against Clemson. In 2007 and 2008, he was the head coach at Boston College. In 2007, he led the Eagles to a 20-17 win over Clemson in Death Valley. He is one of the few coaches to win his first game as an opposing head coach in Death Valley. The Eagles won the ACC Atlantic Division title that year and finished in the top 10 in the nation with an 11-3 record.

  • Head Coach Dabo Swinney can establish an ACC record for wins by a league coach in his seventh season with a conference program with a win over Georgia State. Swinney has a 58-26 record, the same amount of wins that former Maryland Head Coach Jerry Claiborne amassed during his first seven years from 1972-78. He had a 58-23-2 mark through seven seasons with the Terrapins.
