Homecoming Vs. TCU In 1965

Today we'll conclude our step back in time to the 1965 Homecoming weekend in Clemson. We'll look at a number of photos to give you an idea of what it was like to be a student in those days.


The game on Saturday was a matchup between Clemson and Texas Christian. The game was a defensive struggle in which the Tigers held TCU to just 72 total yards of offense. The only score of the game came in the last few minutes of the first half as Frank Pearce kicks a 26-yard field goal.


Back in the 1960’s, the game on Saturday was just the warm up act for the big Homecoming Dance in Harcombe Hall on Saturday night. Here, Clemson students exit Death Valley after the conclusion of the game to get ready for the dance.


Dances, featuring rock and roll bands, were the craze of the 1960’s. That was no exception in Clemson as you can see from this picture from the Saturday Night Homecoming Dance in 1965.
