2013 Clemson Season Preview
Fresh off back-to-back seasons of at least 10 wins, and a victory over LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, the Clemson Tigers have positioned themselves to become a major factor in college football in 2013. Star quarterback Tajh Boyd returns for his senior season after leading the Tigers’ offense to the sixth highest scoring unit in the country. With the potential Heisman Trophy candidate and reigning ACC Player of the Year under center for one final season, Dabo Swinney’s team will be in the national championship conversation all year long. Sammy Watkins will lead Clemson’s receiving core after the departed DeAndre Hopkins to the NFL. Watkins finished with over 700 receiving yards and three touchdowns in 2012.
Clemson has ranked in the top 20 in the nation in average attendance for 22 consecutive seasons and they will use that home field advantage when they open the season against Georgia. The Tigers conclude their season when they travel to state rival South Carolina.

Clemson Tigers Football at Memorial Stadium Address: 1 Avenue of Champions, Clemson, South Carolina, 29634
The Clemson Tigers play home games at Frank Howard Field at Memorial Stadium in Clemson, South Carolina. The stadium is known as “Death Valley” because it sits in a valley below a cemetery, and because of how hard it has been for visiting teams to win there. The crowd volume is one of the Clemson Tigers secret weapons at home. A 2005 home game against Miami set the all-time outdoor sporting event noise record, reaching 126 decibels! The Clemson Tigers home bench is on the Memorial Stadium sideline with sections A-J. Memorial Stadium parking information is covered in our Tigers event guide.
Clemson vs. South Carolina
The Gamecocks and Tigers come together every year to decide South Carolina supremacy, and whether it’s in Columbia or Clemson it’s always a game to remember. This is a rivalry that came even before football, even going back as far as 19th century politics. The Palmetto Bowl is the biggest game of football in the state and it’s one of the best college football experiences in the country.
Clemson vs. Florida State
This is a new rivalry that was called the Bowden Bowl for nine years as it was a matchup between father and son head coaches. The game usually has a lot to do with the final ACC standings, and since it’s played late in the season a lot is on the line and the pressure builds up in both Death Valley and the Doak.
Clemson in the BCS National Championship, Bowl Games, and ACC Championship
