Clemson Football In 1960’s

Today’s photo is from a sparsely attended football game in Death Valley from the 1960’s.
In 1960, The West Stands were used for the first time, as Clemson defeated Virginia Tech, 13-7.
Later that year, Clemson defeated Virginia 21-7 and used special pants for rain protection in this game. After the contest Clemson sent the pants to Greenville and allowed Furman to use the pants for a game that night against William and Mary. Furman Head Coach Bob King said, "after those big Clemson boys got out of them some of our guys had a hard time making them stay up and we had to tape the legs of the pants for several players."
The pants beat two teams from Virginia on the same day.
