The 2019 Clemson football home slate of game designations have been set. Here’s a look at everything you need to know about the home schedule.
The 2019 Clemson football schedule is different than what we’re used to.
The Tigers will have a Thursday night home game for the first time in what seems like forever. Clemson will also play Wofford- an FCS team- to start the November slate right in the middle of conference pay, which is something we haven’t seen in quite some time.
With that being said, home designations are a bit different than what we may have grown accustomed to over the years.
Here’s a look at the home designations for Clemson football in 2019:
- Aug. 29: Georgia Tech (National Championship Celebration)
- Sept. 7: Texas A&M (IPTAY Day)
- Sept. 21: Charlotte (Family Weekend)
- Oct. 12: Florida State (Solid Orange Day)
- Oct. 26: Boston College (Homecoming/Football Reunion Day)
- Nov. 2: Wofford (Military Appreciation Day/ Purple Out)
- Nov. 16: Wake Forest (Senior Day/Hall of Fame Day)
I like Military Appreciation Day continuing to be in the later part of the schedule. There were some rumors that Texas A&M could potentially be Military Appreciation Day, but I personally like it being near the end of the schedule, plus it keeps the purple out tradition of the second-to-last home game.
I don’t think you’d get Dabo Swinney to wear anything other than white pants and orange tops at home in September. It’s tradition.
The ACC Network couldn’t have had a better opening game. They’ll be able to broadcast banners being unveiled and trophy presentations with National Championship Celebration during the first game of the season.
Overall, the home schedule should be pretty fun. There’s potential that Texas A&M could be a top-15 team when they come to town and I wouldn’t be surprised if Boston College was ranked in November, either.
