Neither game will be on live television.

The Tigers first road game of the season, a September 19th meeting at Virginia, has a 3:30 PM kickoff and will be televised by ABC. The following week’s game against Wake Forest at Death Valley will start at 12:00 Noon and also will be televised by ABC.

The Thursday, November 12th contest with Georgia Tech will start at 8:00 PM and will be televised by ESPN. This will be Clemson’s first Thursday night home game in history.
