The Clemson football program has proven to be one of the best in the nation. Because of that, the city of Clemson has been recognized as well.
Who would have thought 10 years ago that Dabo Swinney would lead Clemson football to two National Championships, four CFB Playoff appearances and five ACC Championships?
Swinney has built the Clemson football program from the ground up and now has the Tigers sitting as the program that all the other teams across College Football compare themselves to.
It’s never been a surprise that Clemson, South Carolina is a special place to be.
In the fall, Clemson goes from being a small College town to being one of the largest cities in the state of South Carolina.
The atmosphere is unlike anything else. WalletHub named its top College Football cities for fans and had Clemson on top of the list. Following Tiger Town, you’ve got Tuscaloosa (Alabama), Fargo (North Dakota State), State College (Penn State) and Tallahassee (Florida State).
The study took into several factors, including fan engagement, ticket prices, stadium capacity, performance level, in addition to many other statistics.
Overall, I think Clemson football fans know just how special it is to visit Tiger Town on a Saturday in the fall. From walking downtown pregame to tailgating hours ahead of time and afterwards to the game itself, it’s just a big party every weekend.
It’s something that I think the Tiger faithful look forward to and you can feel the electricity in the air even before you get into Death Valley.
That kind of atmosphere is something that just isn’t easily matched. There are some great college towns, but right now Clemson is continuing to get the love. Dabo Swinney has built something special and exciting over this last decade and everything around the football program is benefiting as a result.
