From Clemson University

TRAFFIC FLOW MAPS (Pregame/Postgame)


Kickoff at Memorial Stadium is set for 3:30 p.m. ET. Chris Cotter, Mark Herzlich and Sherree Burruss will call the television broadcast for ACC Network. Don Munson, Tim Bourret and Reggie Merriweather will broadcast the game on the Clemson Athletic Network. Noah Britt, Jon Reynolds and Patrick Johnson will present the game on Gridiron Radio Network.



– Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney will attempt to tie College Football Hall of Famer Frank Howard as Clemson’s all-time winningest head coach when his Tigers host the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Saturday, Oct. 7. Kickoff at Memorial Stadium in Clemson, S.C., is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.

– Howard, “The Bashful Baron of Barlow Bend,” compiled a 165-118-12 record in 30 seasons at Clemson from 1940-69. His final win came against Maryland on Nov. 1, 1969, and his 165 career wins will enter Saturday having stood alone at the top of Clemson’s leaderboard for a total of 19,698 days, just shy of 54 years.

– A victory would pull Swinney even with Howard and give Swinney a 165-41 all-time record. Howard coached 295 career games at Clemson and won his 165th game in his 292nd career game. Swinney can accomplish the feat in his 206th career game with a win on Saturday.

– Last week, Swinney earned his 100th regular season conference win, matching Howard’s 100 conference wins at Clemson in a career that included membership in both the Southern Conference and the ACC. Swinney earned his 100th ACC regular season win on the exact same day Virginia Tech, a four-time ACC Championship program that had a four-and-a-half season head start on him, earned its 100th ACC regular season win.

– Clemson is in search of its 15th straight win against Wake Forest. Clemson’s last loss to the Demon Deacons came on Oct. 9, 2008, a defeat that led to the elevation of Swinney to head coach four days later. Swinney is 14-0 against Wake Forest, and among coaches to start their head coaching careers in 1996 or later, he is the only coach to win his first 14 games against a single FBS opponent, according to Stats Perform.

Woodland Cemetery remains closed as construction continues to reroute existing walkways, upgrade service drives, and add security and accessibility enhancements while honoring the lives of all who are buried there.

Fans parking on the south and east sides of the stadium, and those planning to enter Gate 16 on the south side of the stadium should allow additional time to enter Memorial Stadium. The Clemson Athletic Department is making every effort to ensure fans can enter and exit the stadium safely and expeditiously.

We request your continued patience as cemetery construction continues and appreciate your reverence and respect of all who are buried at Woodland. We will keep you updated on the construction progress over the coming weeks.

We look forward to improved accessibility and safety at Woodland Cemetery once the work is complete.


Pedestrian safety is of utmost importance in our parking lots and roadways. When tailgating, please be considerate of those who park near you, and allow ample space for pedestrian and vehicular access around your space in roadways and sidewalks. For those exiting the stadium via Williamson Rd., it is recommended to use the sidewalk along the west side (the side closest to the stadium), as it is more accessible to pedestrian traffic. As always, please follow all signage and directions from security and law enforcement officials.


Gathering at the Paw is a unique Clemson tradition. Clemson has seen an increase in incidents that have created unsafe conditions for our guests and staff. Fans are asked to enter the field at the Hill gate or in the ramps in the west, and asked NOT to jump over the walls.
