Clemson vs. Georgia Tech Football Game Day Guide


The Clemson Athletic Department is looking forward to hosting Georgia Tech this weekend for Hall of Fame Day and Reunion Weekend. We will be introducing Hall of Fame inductees and honoring the 1948, 1962, 1974, and 2002 Tiger football teams in the stadium Saturday. The Tigers are looking to improve their home winning streak to 10-0 with a win over the Yellow Jackets in Death Valley on Saturday. This week’s game will be televised by ESPN.

We encourage everyone to arrive early on game day to participate in some of the exciting pregame activities around the stadium. The Tiger Tailgate Show will begin at 12:30 p.m. on the lawn of Littlejohn Coliseum featuring a pregame radio show with tons of giveaways and inflatables for kids to enjoy! The Tiger Tailgate Show will conclude at 2:30 p.m.

Beginning at 1:30 p.m., Tiger Band will host their “90-Minutes Before Kick-Off” mini-concert one hour and 30 minutes before kickoff at the Outdoor Theater (between Sikes Hall and Cooper Library). At the conclusion, the band will begin its traditional march down Fort Hill Street and make its way to the West End Zone of Memorial Stadium.

We encourage all Tiger fans to come to Lot 5 for Tiger Walk at 1:20 p.m. to welcome the team as it enters Memorial Stadium.
