April 7, 1998
CLEMSON, SC–Clemson Athletic Director Bobby Robinson has announced the school’s non-conference football games through the year 2005. The Tigers non-ACC schedule will include games with Virginia Tech, Texas A&M, Missouri, Georgia, Auburn, Tulane and of course state rival South Carolina over the next eight seasons.
All three of Clemson’s non-conference games in 1998 will be played at home, giving the Tigers seven home games. The 1999 schedule will see the Tigers travel to Virginia Tech and South Carolina, meaning the Tigers will have just five home games that season. Each year the Tigers have four ACC home games and four ACC road games.
Clemson is slated to play Furman to open the 1998 season. At present, that is Clemson’s only game with a Division I-AA opponent over the next eight seasons.
Clemson will open the 2002 and 2003 seasons against Georgia, then open the 2005 through the 2008 seasons against Auburn. That means Clemson will meet two SEC teams in six of the seven seasons between 2002 and 2008. The Tigers face South Carolina as the season finale every season.
