Clemson University is home to 17,000 students, 5 college divisons, and one amazing football team. The Clemson Tigers football team was founded in 1896 and finalized their first official logo (an orange paw print with tell-tale hook) in 1970. Team colors are orange and purple and the mascot is, of course, a Tiger.
The strength of the Clemson Tigers football team is its tradition. Before each game, Tigers football players board a bus, ride to the top of a nearby hill, touch a good-luck rock, and tear down the hill into Memorial Stadium to the sound of cannons, the school song, and the cheers of over 80,000 fans. Clemson Tigers games are so popular that 86,092 fans jammed the facility for a match-up against arch-rivals, the Florida State Seminoles. This number was 6,000 above the 80,000 capacity, but fans didn't mind the crowded quarters as they cheered for the Tigers football team with wild abandon.
The Tigers football team plays in the Atlantic Coast Conference with other teams like the George Tech Yellow Jackets and the Wake Forest Deacons. The Tigers football team does well both home and away, but any college football fan would be crazy not to catch a Clemson Tigers football game right at Memorial Stadium.
