On Saturday, October 16 before the Tigers clawed their way to victory over Maryland, EMPower Clemson, SAAC, ClemsonLiVE and the Parent’s Council came together to host the annual Blitz tailgate. Complete with dunking tank, photo booth, DJ, free food and raffle for the IFC donated tailgate tent and chairs, people of all ages, from all parts of the community came together to celebrate alcohol-free tailgating.

From 9:00 a.m. until noon an estimated 575 people gathered at the southwest corner of Littlejohn Coliseum to see what the Blitz was all about. “Look out for your tailgate neighbor” messaging showed that tailgating is not synonymous with alcohol; it’s about uniting everyone through team spirit.

Particular thanks go to Judge Deborah Culler, Catalin Baciu (“Bobo”) from the men’s basketball team, and three of our assistant coaches from the swimming and diving team – Tricia Harm, Zac Adams and Derek Perkins, for their willingness to be repeatedly “dunked” in the dunking booth!!
