2015 Clemson Season Preview
2013 saw the end of one of the most successful eras in Clemson football history. Departing quarterback Taj Boyd finished his career for the Tigers with over 1,400 completions, almost 12,000 yards, and 107 touchdowns. Also departing from the Orange Bowl winning squad is wide receiver Phenom Sammy Watkins. But spirits are as high as ever at Clemson as Dabo Swinney has built a program that looks to have staying power near the top of the ACC. Cole Stoudt will finally have a chance to step out of Boyd’s shadow and keep the high powered Tigers attack moving. Look for senior running back D.J. Howard to get plenty of touches and for wide receivers Charone Peake and Adam Humphries to tear through defenses. There will be little time to adjust to the new faces as 2 of the Tigers top games come in the season’s first 3 weeks. Clemson plays at Georgia in week 1 and then travels to Tallahassee to take on defending national champion Florida State in week 3. Expect the Tigers to continue to be competitive and remain one of the premier programs in the ACC.

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.
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.
