As we inch closer and closer to the start of the 2023 season, it is time to look at the Clemson Tigers football schedule for potential roadblocks.
5: NOV. 18 • VS. NORTH CAROLINA • MEMORIAL STADIUM, CLEMSON, S.C.
On Nov. 18, Clemson’s Memorial Stadium will be the site of a rematch of the 2022 ACC Championship Game between Clemson and North Carolina. Last December, Clemson claimed its seventh ACC title in eight years by virtue of a 39-10 victory over the Tar Heels at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. That victory gave Clemson a postseason win in 12 consecutive seasons, the longest streak in major college football history.
4: OCT. 28 • AT NC STATE • CARTER-FINLEY STADIUM, RALEIGH, N.C.
Last season, Clemson and NC State played the highest-ranked game in the teams’ 90-game series history, as the fifth-ranked Tigers topped the 10th-ranked Wolfpack, 30-20, at Death Valley in front of a prime-time national television audience. This year, the teams will meet on Oct. 28 in Raleigh, where the Tigers are 7-2 in their last nine games despite a double-overtime loss in their last visit in 2021.
3: NOV. 25 • AT SOUTH CAROLINA • WILLIAMS-BRICE STADIUM, COLUMBIA, S.C.
After its seven-game winning streak in the series concluded last season, Clemson’s opportunity to seize back in-state bragging rights against South Carolina will come on Saturday, Nov. 25. Clemson enters the game with a 72-43-4 all-time record in one of college football’s most-played rivalries, a series Clemson has led since 1898. A win would give the Tigers five straight road wins against South Carolina for the first time since defeating the Gamecocks in Columbia six straight times across the 1989-99 seasons.
2: NOV. 4 • VS. NOTRE DAME • MEMORIAL STADIUM, CLEMSON, S.C.
On Saturday, Nov. 4, Clemson will host Notre Dame at Memorial Stadium for the teams’ fifth meeting since 2018. Notre Dame collected regular season victories against Clemson in 2020 and 2022, but Clemson earned decisive postseason victories in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl in 2018 and the 2020 ACC Championship Game. This game will represent the Irish’s first visit to Clemson since a memorable 2015 contest in which Clemson stopped a late Irish two-point conversion attempt to earn a 24-22 prime-time victory amid the remnants of Hurricane Joaquin.
1: SEPT. 23 • VS. FLORIDA STATE • MEMORIAL STADIUM, CLEMSON, S.C.
On Sept. 23, the two programs that combined for 13 of 17 Atlantic Division titles in the ACC’s divisional era will meet for the first time since the conference’s dissolution of divisional play. Clemson has won seven straight games in its series with Florida State, dating to 2015. With a win in this contest, Clemson would pull within one of the 1968-76 Florida Gators for the longest winning streak against the Seminoles in Florida State history (nine)
