November 12, 1983 Three thousand Clemson students arrived at Death Valley at 7:00 a.m. to blow up 363,729 balloons. The 80,000 fans released the balloons as the team ran down the hill. On the field, Mike Eppley was outstanding with three touchdown passes, and Kevin Mack rushed for 186 yards in his final game in Death Valley. He scored his final touchdown with just one shoe on, as he had lost it during his 56-yard run for a score. Clemson downed the top-20 Maryland team and Boomer Esiason, 52-27.

Clemson: Where the Tigers Play, covers the major events that have occurred in over a century of athletic competition. From Frank Howard’s homespun humor to the National Championships Clemson has won in various sports, this book gives the many details of the Tigers at play.
