    Clemson and Wake Forest will meet for the 154th time in the series on Tuesday.  The Demon Deacons hold a 98-55 lead in the series, but the Tigers are 23-19 over the years against Wake Forest in Littlejohn Coliseum.
    Clemson swept Wake Forest last season, which included the program’s first win at Lawrence Joel Coliseum since winning in the facility’s first season of existence, 1989-90.  This will be the only meeting between the two teams this season.
    The Tigers are coming off their first ACC win of the 2012-13 season, a 59-44 triumph over Virginia on Saturday.  Clemson shot 77 percent in the second half and rode the play of seniors Devin Booker (15 points, 9 rebounds) and Milton Jennings (21 points, 11 rebounds) to the win.
    Wake Forest is 2-1 in the ACC, with its only loss at No. 1 ranked Duke on Jan. 5.  The Deacons are coming off a pair of home wins over Virginia and Boston College.
    Clemson is bidding for its fourth straight win over Wake Forest.  The Tigers have not defeated the Demon Deacons four straight times since Cliff Ellis’ teams won five straight from 1988-90.
    The Tigers shot 77 percent in the second half against Virginia, the highest percentage for a half since Clemson made 85 percent of its attempts at home in 2010-11 against Georgia Tech in Brad Brownell’s first season.  Both games were held on Jan. 12, ironically enough.
    Milton Jennings recorded his highest career point total against an ACC team with 21 in the Tigers’ last outing against Virginia.  He added 11 rebounds and made a career-best 5-of-8 from three-point range.  The 21 points tied for a single-game high by a Clemson player this season.
    Devin Booker was one rebound shy of a third straight double-double to open ACC play.  He has scored at least 12 in each ACC game, with a high of 19 versus Florida State on Jan. 5.
    Rod Hall committed no turnovers in 36 minutes against Virginia, and now owns a 2.5 assist-to-turnover ratio this season (55-to-22).  His figure would be sixth-best in school history if the season ended today.
    K.J. McDaniels had three blocks against Virginia, and is bidding to become the first Tiger to lead the team in both blocks and steals since Greg Buckner in 1994-95.

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…
