Clemson vs. NC State Football Game Day Guide


The Clemson Athletic Department is looking forward to hosting NC State this weekend for IPTAY Day. The Tigers are looking for their 13th straight victory at home on Saturday against the Wolfpack to give them their second consecutive 10-win season. This week’s game will be televised by ABC/ESPN2.

IPTAY has launched an exciting opportunity for Tiger fans to take advantage of a trial IPTAY membership through the IPTAY Day Challenge. Those that have not yet stepped up to the challenge can do so by visiting

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.
