    Clemson and Florida State will face off on the hardwood for the 60th time in series history Saturday.  It will be the first of two meetings between the two conference rivals over a span of 19 days.
    The Tigers wrapped up the non-conference portion of the 2012-13 schedule with a 41-point victory over The Citadel on New Year’s Day.  Clemson scored its highest point total (92), most field goals (35) and largest victory margin in 77 games under Head Coach Brad Brownell.
    Florida State comes into the game with an 8-5 overall record, having lost its most recent contest at Auburn by a score of 78-72 on Thursday.  The Seminoles are 1-1 on the road this season, with a win over Charlotte last week.
    Clemson has won 10 of the last 11 meetings with Florida State in Littlejohn Coliseum, including both games under current Head Coach Brad Brownell.  Last season, the Tigers beat the eventual ACC Tournament champion Seminoles by a margin of 20 points.
    This is the fourth time in the last seven seasons Clemson will open its ACC regular season schedule against Florida State.  Clemson is 13-17 all-time when opening ACC play at home.
    Saturday will mark the first of 18 conference games for the Tigers, the first 18-game ACC schedule in history.  The league had employed a 16-game format the last 21 seasons.
    Clemson outscored The Citadel in points off turnovers by a 44-13 margin, and have now outscored opponents 238-113 this season off turnovers.  That accounts for 30 percent of Clemson’s scoring this season.
    Clemson enters Saturday’s game atop the conference in blocks per game (5.2) and second in steals per game (8.2).  Sophomore forward K.J. McDaniels is the only player in the ACC to lead his team in both categories.
    Freshman guard Adonis Filer was 7-for-7 from the floor against The Citadel, including 4-for-4 from three.  It was the best perfect shooting night by a Tiger since Raymond Sykes made all eight of his attempts against Ole Miss in 2007.
    Filer had 21 points versus The Citadel, one of only seven Clemson freshmen to score at least 20 in a game this century.
    Jordan Roper has scored double figures in three of Clemson’s last four games, with a high of 16 against Florida A&M.

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…
