Broadcast Notes/Times: Rivalry Week Tiger Pregame Show

The Tiger Pregame Show Will Get You Ready For The Greatest Rivalry In College Football!

Clemson looks to win its 66th game in this great rivalry and prevent South Carolina from winning their 6th in a row in this series.

It is a noon kickoff, so we are on the air early to help Tiger fans get to Clemson safely to their parking spot while getting all of the latest information on the big game.

The Tiger Pregame Show, a game day tradition for Clemson football fans on Saturdays, will broadcast its 154th consecutive show Saturday to prepare fans for the South Carolina.

The show, as always, will be broadcast on WCCP 105.5 FM and  Broadcast times for Saturday's show will be from 6:00-9:00 as Scott Rhymer will get Tiger fans ready for the 21st ranked Tigers and South Carolina.

“This is the greatest rivalry in college football”, Rhymer states. "These two teams have created this passion between the two schools without both being in the national spotlight at the same time very often in the series' history".
Clemson fans making the trip to Clemson will also be able to listen to the Tiger Pregame Show on WCCP 105.5 FM or Tiger fans will need to stream the show via the WCCP web site and app.

The show on Saturday will also tap into the continued emergence of Social Media as part of Clemson fan’s game day expectations. 

“No longer do Clemson fans have to sit beside a radio in order to listen to the show”, Rhymer points out.  “While you are out and about Saturday, our fans can stream the show via the WCCP App on their smart phones”.

“But that is not the only reason we embrace the technology.  In addition to streaming the show, we also want to engage fans during the show to allow them to give their opinions and insight into the show that we can use while broadcasting this Saturday.  That’s the really exciting part of embracing the technology as it allows fans to do more than just listen.  It allows them to engage.”

The Tiger Pregame Show format will continue broadcasting 6 hours prior to kickoff and ends 3 hours prior to kickoff, which means this week's show is from 6:00-9:00.  The show will continue to offer in-depth analysis of the upcoming game, focusing on X’s and O’s of what fans should expect to see on the field during the game.

Segments for Saturday include up to the minute game day weather conditions, Top 25 Report, ACC and SEC Game Breakdowns, Injury Reports for both Clemson and South Carolina and a historical look back at this day in Clemson football history and this rivalry.

Former Tiger Running Back Reggie Merriweather will join the show for the final two hours.

Don Munson, the new Voice of the Tigers, will join the show live each week to give his unique perspective inside the football program and final preparations for the South Carolina game.  

And, just like in the previous 11 years, the show will close the final hour with the Keys to the Game and game day predictions.

Each week, Dabo Swinney, Chad Morris, and Brent Venables will provide audio interviews to set the stage for the game.  The show will also have the key Clemson players on air so that they can give their perspective from the field.
