The Clemson Athletic Department and IPTAY are looking forward to hosting Syracuse this Saturday in Memorial Stadium for Homecoming. 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 open at 5 p.m., so be sure to be in your seats and be loud!

This week, The Greenville Health System Tiger Tailgate Show begins at 4 p.m. on the lawn of Littlejohn Coliseum, featuring a pregame radio show with tons of giveaways and inflatables for everyone to enjoy!

Beginning at 5:30 p.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 4:50 p.m.

A unique part of the gameday experience at Memorial Stadium is “pass outs,” and the ability to leave the stadium during halftime and return. We encourage any fans utilizing this courtesy to be back in their seats as halftime ends to cheer on the Tigers in the second half! Thanks for coming to the games and being #ClemsonLOUD for all 60 minutes.

  • Tigerama (Littlejohn Coliseum) – Friday, 7 p.m.


We have a great opportunity to showcase our Solid Orange spirit and enthusiasm to Syracuse fans this weekend. We encourage every Tiger fan to wear orange!


  • Syracuse enters tonight’s game with a 3-4 overall record and 1-2 ACC mark, but it is coming off its best performance of the year, a 30-7 win at Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons scored the first touchdown of the game, but the Orange went on a 30-0 run.

  • Clemson hopes to close a perfect month of October on the scoreboard with a win over Syracuse. The Tigers are 3-0 so far in October, wins over NC State, Louisville and Boston College.

  • Clemson has won its last four contests, and the Tiger defense has played a big part. That has especially been the case over the last three games, as the Tigers have allowed just 30 points in those three games. It is the first time Clemson has done that since 2008. That year, Clemson had consecutive wins over Duke (31-7), Virginia (13-3) and South Carolina (31-14) to close the regular season.

  • Clemson’s senior class can establish a school record today. The Tiger record for ACC wins by a four-year class is 24, and a victory over Syracuse would give this group of 21 scholarship seniors 25 regular-season wins over ACC teams. Clemson is 4-1 in the ACC this year, with tonight’s home game against Syracuse and ACC road games at Wake Forest and Georgia Tech remaining.
