Clemson vs. Maryland Football Game Day Guide


The Clemson Athletic Department is looking forward to hosting Maryland this weekend for Homecoming. Make sure to arrive early and take advantage of the many special Homecoming events taking place all over campus. The Tigers are looking for their 12th straight victory at home on Saturday against the Terrapins, a win that would set a Memorial Stadium record for consecutive home wins. This week’s game will be televised by ESPNU.

This week, The Tiger Tailgate Show will begin at 12:30 p.m. on the lawn of Littlejohn Coliseum featuring a pre-game radio show with tons of giveaways and inflatables for kids to enjoy!

Beginning at 2:00 p.m., Tiger Band will host their “90-Minutes Before Kick-Off” mini-concert 1 hour and 30 minutes before kick-off at the Outdoor Theater (between Sikes Hall and Cooper Library). At the conclusion, they will begin their traditional march down Fort Hill Street and make their way to the West EndZone of Memorial Stadium.

We encourage all Tiger Fans to be sure to come to Lot 5 for Tiger Walk at 1:20 p.m. to welcome the team as they enter Memorial Stadium.

Please take note of how the detour may affect your route to the game. A map of the detour is available at the following web address:
