Gameday Guide: Football vs. NC State • Oct. 1, 2022 • 7:30 pm • ABC


The kickoff time for Saturday’s game remains scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Clemson Athletics and campus safety personnel continue to monitor the forecast of Hurricane Ian carefully and have been consistent in communications with the Atlantic Coast Conference, NC State and television partners. The safety of fans and student-athletes from both universities is our top priority.

In response to the needs throughout the state, South Carolina Highway Patrol may deploy additional personnel to affected regions. Fans traveling to Clemson are asked to be patient and plan for possible extended time getting into and out of town on gameday.


  • Please make travel decisions based on your local weather conditions. If your travel circumstances require it, list your tickets via Ticketmaster.
  • Please allow extra time for travel to the game. While that extra travel time is important for most games, it is especially important for this Saturday’s game. 
  • Exercise patience with traffic and parking operations.
  • Fans are encouraged to monitor local weather conditions often and exercise good judgment when making travel plans for the game. Consider possible travel conditions traveling both to and from Clemson on Saturday. 
  • Fans returning to areas that may have flooded should exhibit extra caution when traveling at night and avoid driving through flooded areas.


  • Parking lots open at 8 a.m. and Memorial Stadium gates open at 5:30 p.m.
  • Fans are encouraged to exhibit caution and take down tailgating tents prior to entering Memorial Stadium. Considerations for tents:
    • Choose sturdy construction with vented canopy tops
    • Anchor your canopy – use ropes and steel stakes. Stake through holes in Canopy footing
    • Avoid areas that have soggy ground
    • Remove sidewalls to avoid sailing 
    • Use weights on canopy legs
  • Extension cords should only be used outdoors in wet weather if they are specifically designed for this purpose. All-purpose extension cords should never be used outside, as they are not water-resistant and can easily short out.


Parking is available on a single-game basis by visiting your Ticketmaster account or by calling 1-800-Clemson.


We have a new special effects lighting system in Memorial Stadium!

These features will be prominently displayed during our night game against Louisiana Tech this Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022. Be aware that flashing lights like this can be potentially dangerous to people with health conditions that are associated with photosensitivity, meaning they can be triggered by visual patterns. Kits for those who have sensory disabilities are available at Guest Services booths.



The Textile Bowl and continued control of ACC Atlantic Division destiny will be at stake in front of the eyes of the nation on Saturday, Oct. 1 when the No. 5 Clemson Tigers host the No. 10 NC State Wolfpack on ABC’s Saturday Night Football. Kickoff at Memorial Stadium is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Saturday’s game will be the first in the series to feature both teams in the AP Top 10.

The Tigers and Wolfpack have previously met five times with both teams ranked in the AP Top 25, including Clemson wins in 1991, 2017 and 2018 and NC State victories in 1986 and 1992. The lower-ranked team took each of the first three meetings until higher-ranked Clemson squads earned wins in 2017 and 2018. With Clemson at No. 5 in the AP Poll and NC State at No. 10, the game will feature the highest combined ranking between the two teams in series history, surpassing the 2018 matchup when No. 3 Clemson trounced No. 16 NC State, 41-7.

Ranked Clemson teams are 20-7 all-time against NC State, and Clemson is 7-5 all-time against ranked NC State teams. Clemson enters the contest having won 36 games in a row at Death Valley, dating to a loss to Pitt on Nov. 12, 2016. A 37th consecutive home win on Saturday would tie the ACC record set by Florida State from 1992- 2001, as Miami’s FBS-record 58-game home winning streak from 1985-94 predated the Hurricanes joining the ACC in 2004.
