The Clemson Athletic Department and IPTAY are looking forward to hosting SC State this Saturday in Memorial Stadium for Youth Day. Clemson Athletics encourages all Tiger fans to arrive to the stadium early to watch, “The most exciting 25 seconds in college football,” as the Tigers run down the Hill. Gates will open at 10:30 a.m., so be sure to be in your seats and be loud!

This week, The Tiger Tailgate Show begins at 9:30 a.m. on the lawn of Littlejohn Coliseum, featuring a pregame radio show with tons of giveaways and inflatables for everyone to enjoy!

Beginning at 11 a.m., Tiger Band hosts its “90 Minutes Before Kickoff” mini-concert at the Outdoor Theater (between Sikes Hall and Cooper Library). At the conclusion, the band begins its traditional march down Fort Hill Street and makes its way to the West Endzone of Memorial Stadium.

We encourage everyone to arrive early and proceed to Lot 5 to welcome the team, as Tiger Walk is scheduled for 10:20 a.m.
