The Clemson Athletic Department and IPTAY are looking forward to hosting North Carolina this Saturday in Memorial Stadium for Hall of Fame Weekend. 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 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!

SOLID ORANGE

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

 TIGER TIDBITS

  • Clemson is off to a 1-2 start but has played a difficult schedule. According to the Sagarin computer rating, Clemson has played the most difficult schedule in the country with an 84.4 rating. Rice is second and Southern Methodist is third in terms of most difficult schedules among FBS schools.
  • Clemson begins a three-game homestand when North Carolina comes to town. There have been many homestands of three games or more, but it is rare to have the homestand against only ACC teams. After the game against North Carolina, the Tigers host NC State on October 4 and Louisville on October 11.
  • Clemson is in the top 12 in the nation in a number of defensive categories, and the unit’s performance at top-ranked Florida State had a lot to do with it. Clemson is second in the nation in tackles for loss per game (9.7), sixth in first downs allowed (44), 11th in third-down conversion percentage defense (25.6), 11th in pass efficiency defense (97.7) and 12th in total defense, allowing 273.3 yards per game. Clemson led the nation in tackles for loss in 2013.
  • Defensive end Vic Beasley is moving up the school’s career sack list at an alarming rate. He has four sacks in the first three games this year and has 25 in his career. He is just three away from the Clemson record of 28 sacks held by the late Gaines Adams and Michael Dean Perry. Beasley is tied for third with all-time great William Perry, the 1984 ACC Player-of-the-Year as a middle guard.
  • Deshaun Watson is expected to be Clemson’s starting quarterback against North Carolina. He can become the first first-year freshman to start at quarterback for Clemson in 20 years. In 1994, Nealon Greene started five games at quarterback, the last being against South Carolina.
