Clemson football season begins in less than 24 hours. We’ve previewed about everything, but here are keys that will be essential for the Tigers Saturday.

Clemson football will open up their season tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. against the Wofford Terriers. This marks the official start of the football season and we are all excited to see what the 2015 Clemson Tigers football team looks like this season. We all get to lay our eyes on the team Saturday for the first time in a game situation and there are many things to be on the look out for.

Many Clemson football fans look at this game as a “scrimmage” and don’t even consider Wofford an opponent. I’m here to tell you that this game may not be close, but there are several keys to watch, not just for the outcome of this game, but for the outcome of the 2015 Clemson football season.

Some things we see tomorrow will give us clues into what we can expect the rest of the season. Obviously, things can change over the progression of a season, but let’s take a look at some of these keys that Clemson football will need to focus on in order to not only win this game, but to keep their ranking and gain some momentum going forward. I have selected five keys that I believe will be instrumental in bettering the team and picking up the win, so let’s take a look at those keys.
