The Ingles Tiger Tailgate Show presented by Upcountry Fiber
Clemson will kick off its 127th football season in school history in grand fashion on Labor Day as the Tigers travel to the home of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons for a prime-time ACC matchup with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Monday, Sept. 5.
Kickoff for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium is set for 8 p.m. ET. Clemson enters the 2022 campaign riding a streak of 11 consecutive 10-win seasons, including the 2021 campaign in which Clemson battled through injuries and a 4-3 start to finish 10-3 and ranked No. 14 in the final AP Poll.
While much attention has been paid to Clemson’s coaching staff turnover necessitated by the departure of two long-time coordinators for head coaching positions, Clemson’s roster stability since the start of the spring has been unique, leading Head Coach Dabo Swinney to praise his team’s loyalty, commitment and self-awareness in a transfer-heavy era for college football.
“We had 109 guys go through spring; 109 guys are still here,” Head Coach Dabo Swinney said. “Not one person left. There are only four of the Power 65 teams that didn’t have somebody leave after spring. That says a lot about what our players think about our coaches but more importantly what they think of their experience and the love of Clemson and their culture and each other.”
