QUICK FACTS
    Clemson and Purdue will meet for the fifth time in series history Wednesday, and the third time in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.  The Tigers are 3-1 versus the Boilermakers and 1-1 in the challenge.
    Clemson is 9-4 all-time in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and is the only school in either conference to have five road wins under its belt.
    Clemson carries a 4-1 overall record into Wednesday’s game and is coming off two wins in three chances in the Old Spice Classic.  The Tigers lost to No. 16 Gonzaga 57-49, but rebounded with wins over UTEP (69-48) and Marist (59-44) in Orlando, FL.
    Purdue enters Wednesday’s tilt with a 2-3 record.  The Boilermakers have not played since Nov. 21, when they knocked off UNC Wilmington – one of Brad Brownell’s former schools – by a score of 66-40.
    Wednesday’s game will be the first ever meeting between Clemson Head Coach Brad Brownell and Purdue Head Coach Matt Painter.  Both are regarded as two of the top Xs and Os coaches in the game.
    Brownell is a native of Evansville, IN and his wife, Paula, graduated from Purdue University.
    Clemson has held three opponents to less than 50 points this season, and is now 16-1 under Brownell under that scenario.  Clemson’s only loss was to Virginia, 49-47, in Brownell’s first season, 2010-11.
    Clemson has held each of its first five opponents to less than 60 points.  That is the longest streak for the Tiger program since the 1997-98 season, when Rick Barnes’ final team went five straight between Dec. 17 and Dec. 30.
    Milton Jennings was named to the Old Spice Classic All-Tournament Team and scored a season-high 18 points in Clemson’s win over UTEP.
    Devin Booker posted his first double-double of the season in the Marist win with 15 points and 13 rebounds.  His rebound figure was a personal high since collecting 13 at home against Duke on Jan. 15, 2012.
    Adonis Filer scored double figures in all three tournament games in Orlando.  The freshman guard scored 24 of his 30 points in the second halves of the three games.

One of the great things about football season is that it offers the opportunity to welcome people to Clemson (either for the first time or after a long time away).  

At Clemson, we believe that we have something special and are excited to showcase that special college football environment each time we host a visitor.  Our goal  is very simple:  To be incredible hosts to our visitors and provide the ultimate game day experience.



There is an additional buzz in the air for Week 2 at Clemson, as we host the the Auburn Tigers and their fans for what should be an electric game day weekend with two Top 15 football teams in an ACC vs. SEC match-up in prime time!  We hope that your trip here will be exciting, memo…

May 3rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are a series of shots during the construction of the North Upper Deck in 1983.

The North Upper Deck is comprised of 22,500 yards of concrete, 2,200 Tons of reinforcing steel, 3,000 tons of asphalt, 5,800 gallons of paint, and 60,000 pounds of aluminum seating

The North Upper Deck height is 13.36 stories and the length is 560 feet. The total cost of the North Upper Deck was $13.5 million

To illustrate the quality of the investment of the upper deck.  The $13.5 million dollar investment is recovered in just 3 years (7 home games per year) in ticket sales.  Each game Clemson sells out the North Upper Deck, over $600,000 goes towards Clemson Athletics.

The North Upper Deck is slightly larger than the South Upper Deck. The reason for this is simple. Engineers had more room to build behind the North Upper Deck than they did behind the South Upper Deck (with Cemetery Hill behind the South). This al…
