ACC Announces Three Clemson September Kickoff Times

The ACC announced three September kickoff times and networks for the Clemson Tigers on Wednesday. 

The Labor Day (Sept. 4) opener at Duke will be televised on ESPN at 8 p.m. 

The Tigers make their home debut in 2023 against Charleston Southern on Sept. 9 at 2:15 p.m. on the ACC Network. 

The following week, Clemson will play under the Memorial Stadium lights against Florida Atlantic at 8 p.m. The Sept. 16 game will also be televised on the ACC Network. 

No start time has been announced for the fourth game of September when Florida State comes to town for what will likely be the most anticipated game of the ACC football season. 

The ACC released a host of other start times across the league on Wednesday. 

“The 2023 ACC Football season has no shortage of incredible matchups – including our new conference schedule – and we are thrilled to have our teams significantly highlighted on ABC, ESPN and ESPN2,” ACC Commissioner Jim Phillips said in a released statement. “Our league will once again open with five consecutive games over Labor Day weekend, while continuing to arguable play the toughest non-conference schedule in the country. We appreciate our partners in Disney, ESPN and ACC Network and we all look forward to the upcoming season with great anticipation.”
