FUTURE NON-CONFERENCE OPPONENTS ALSO UNVEILED …

CLEMSON, S.C.— A home schedule which includes Notre Dame and 2014 top-10 finishers Florida State and Georgia Tech highlights the 2015 Clemson football schedule announced on Thursday.

Clemson has seven home games and five on the road for the 10th consecutive regular season. Five of Clemson’s first six games are at home for just the fifth time in history, just the second time in the last 23 years.

“I am always excited to see the schedule for the upcoming season because it allows us to plan our journey for the next season,” said Head Coach Dabo Swinney. “There is no doubt this will as challenging a schedule as we have ever had with some great home games and tough games in road venues. We are already preparing for the challenge and can’t wait to get started with spring practice (March 2).”

Clemson opens the 2015 season on the same date and against the same opponent the Tigers faced in opening the National Championship season of 1981, a September 5 contest with Wofford. Week two will see the Tigers face Appalachian State in the first meeting between the two schools as FBS members, and the first time Appalachian State has come to Clemson since the two teams met in the season opener of 1997.

Clemson will have a quick turnaround for its third game, when the Tigers open ACC play at Atlantic Division rival Louisville on Thursday night, September 17. It will be the first of seven straight games against 2014 bowl teams. Clemson has won four straight Thursday night regular season games dating to the 2009 season. It will be the first time Clemson has had just five days to prepare for a game since 2012 when the Tigers won at Wake Forest.

Notre Dame comes to Clemson for the first time since 1977 when the two schools faced in a meeting of top 15 teams. Notre Dame won that game, 21-17, and went on to win the National Championship. Clemson won the rematch two years later in South Bend, 16-10. The two schools have not met since. Clemson will have 16 days to prepare for Notre Dame, the most preparation for a game in the middle of a season since 1918. Notre Dame has a .732 winning percentage in its history, best among all FBS schools. Over the last four years Clemson has defeated seven of the top 25 schools on that list (Ohio State, Oklahoma, Florida State, LSU, Georgia, Auburn and Virginia Tech).

Clemson plays back-to-back home games against league rivals Georgia Tech and Boston College the following two weeks. Tech comes to Clemson on October 10 in a meeting of two top 15 teams from the final 2014 AP poll.

Clemson plays its first Saturday road game of the year at Miami on Oct. 24. It will be the first meeting between the two schools since 2010 when Miami won at Clemson. Clemson won its last trip to face Miami in 2009 by a 40-37 score in overtime. The road team has won all four meetings since Miami joined the ACC in 2004.

Clemson will play back-to-back road games when the Tigers travel to Raleigh to face N.C. State. Clemson defeated a Wolfpack team that won eight games last year by a 41-0 score, the second largest margin of victory for the Tigers over a league team that would win at least eight games in Clemson’s 62 years in the ACC.

On Nov. 7, Clemson hosts Florida State in a battle of two of the four teams nationally that have ranked in the top 25 of the final AP and USA Today polls each of the last four years. The winner of the Clemson vs. Florida State game has gone on to win the Atlantic Division of the ACC each of the last six years.

The Tigers play their fourth and final ACC road game on Nov. 14, traveling to Syracuse for just the second time. The Tigers defeated the Orange 49-14 the last time they played at Syracuse, and won the contest at home last year 16-6.

The Tigers conclude their ACC schedule Nov. 21 at home against Wake Forest, marking the second time Wake Forest has been Clemson’s opponent on “Senior Day” at Memorial Stadium since 1989.

Clemson concludes the regular season at South Carolina on Nov. 28. The Tigers won the rivalry game last year by a 35-17 score at Memorial Stadium.

Ah yes…the transitive property of college football. The USC fan’s favorite “go to” logic.

My how they forget January 29, 2015 at 6:32 pm

Oh the denial of a Tater. “Tater logic” was written on all the boards just last year for a few years in a row, and how they tried to act like they were better than USC because they beat LSU, or Auburn or, that 1 time UGA all the while they were still losing to USC. Now I guess since their current coach got his 2nd win in 7 years over USC they want to act like they didn’t and you think you can flip the script with claiming USC is doing it. What a joke you are. Good job on 1 win in over half a decade. By your coaches pattern you will get that next one in 2020.

Your offense will be worse and your defense will be the same. You need to focus more on how you’re going to beat anybody with a mediocre QB by committee and a defense that can’t stop a “Babe Ruth-like pointing at the hole he’s going to run through” wildcat play. Don’t be shocked when you roll into your open date 1-6.

Then perhaps you could explain the use of the word “still”?
We haven’t played Notre Dame since 1979.

so, January 29, 2015 at 1:59 pm

Or perhaps just use your head to see the easy point being made in a direct reply to the 3 games you are talking about. I understand things get a tad confusing off the farm, but seriously?

mamatiger92 January 29, 2015 at 2:06 pm

Um, no… you said “still” 0-3 against “them”. One of “them” we haven’t played in 36 years (we won that game btw). And, then mention FSU? Your trolling clearly needs work.

Are you an FSU fan? If you are then, congrats on your 3 game winning streak. Certainly hope we end that at home this year. If you are a pathetic Gamecock fan, attempting to ride the coattails of the Seminoles, then I’ll just close with “scoreboard” & “66-42-4”.

so, January 29, 2015 at 2:31 pm

um no, you said “ND, Tech & FSU” which is 3 teams, all of which you will lose too, going o-3 against them. It was very simple to follow and yes you obviously are not too bright if you couldn’t. You can try to cover up that fact but its pretty easy to see

mamatiger92 January 29, 2015 at 2:40 pm

Yes, dear… but you used the word “still”. websters.com. Look into it.

And, as it is obvious that you are the aforementioned pathetic SCAR fan, then I refer you to my previous post. Cheers!

so, January 29, 2015 at 2:41 pm

you are that special kind of stupid aren’t you?

mamatiger92 January 29, 2015 at 2:46 pm

Oh, the irony.

so, January 29, 2015 at 2:50 pm

I love the help mamatiger even tries to offer to show where the point was easy. Singles out three teams and then says all at home. “ND, Tech & FSU at home this fall.” even though they are at home they STILL will lose all three, and go 0-3. too stupid to see the mistake on an obvious reply, mamatiger rambles off topic. Then tries to say its ironic calling them stupid when the real irony is they pointed out their own stupidity on themselves.

mamatiger92 January 29, 2015 at 2:52 pm

You didn’t say “even though they are all still at home” though did you, dear?

2-5 is what you current coach has done. 6-4 is what ours has. both have a much better winning percentage in USC’s favor than yours form way back before either coach was here. nice try though.

Great. So your Hall of Fame coach was 1-4 before the past 5 game win streak? We picked a wide receivers coach to replace a coach sent packing half way through the season (that owned said HOF coach). At which time the recruiting class dropped to 12 recruits (instead of a more normal 25), setting in motion a ripple that hamstrung the team for years. However, it does appear apparent that one team is heading upward, and the other is a dumpster fire.

I replied to a comment about Clemson. If that makes me a hypocrite then, so be it.

Doesn’t it seem odd though, that that is just another example of how SCAR fans just obsess about Clemson? A story on their bowl win and some doofus brings up Dabo Swinney?

hypocrite January 29, 2015 at 3:08 pm

so you are saying USC fans obsess about Clemson for commenting on a story about Clemson and you do the same thing on a story about USC? it doesn’t matter why you did it.

mamatiger92 January 29, 2015 at 3:09 pm

Sure it does. It was a comment about my alma mater. Had it been a discussion of the Gamecock bowl win, I wouldn’t have even thought of posting.

hypocrite January 29, 2015 at 3:10 pm

the story itself was about USC and you commented on it. You were asked if you have not ever done that and you lied and said no

mamatiger92 January 29, 2015 at 3:12 pm

Again, I responded to a comment about Clemson. If that makes me a liar in your eyes, then so be it.

Hey Gomer…here’s a little tip b/c you’re slow. YOU were the first one to bring up the Gamecocks. “If you are a pathetic Gamecock fan..” Yes, that was you. Additionally, how about you tell us how blogs work. Fans of teams/members of a political party can only read/comment on articles about their teams/candidates? B/c how about you watch the next time a Gamecocks story is posted and your orange boyfriends on here comment on it.
