The ACC has finally released the 2017 football schedule and Clemson apparently paid someone off in the ACC office. But once again the September part of the schedule does look pretty tasty. The Tigers will host Boston College, FSU, Wake Forest, and Georgia Tech this year while traveling to Louisville, Syracuse, NC State, and Virginia Tech. The full schedule is below.

September 2nd: Kent State

September 9th: Auburn

September 16th: @Louisville

September 23rd: Boston College

September 30th: @ Virginia Tech

October 7th: Wake Forest

October 13th: @ Syracuse (FRI)

October 21st: BYE

October 28th: Georgia Tech

November 4th: @NC State

November 11th: Florida State

November 18th: The Citadel

November 25th: @South Carolina

Honestly this works out well. The Auburn and Louisville back to back is a bit rough, but should be manageable. Other than that there aren’t any complaints. There are no back to back away games and the bye week comes after 7 weeks. The one interesting thing to note is that the ACC put the FSU game at the end of the season, depending on how things work out it is possible that this could be the biggest game of the season, or not matter one bit.

In non-conference games, Clemson will open the season against Kent State over Labor Day Weekend. The Tigers will have an opportunity to break in the new starting QB before hosting Auburn on September 9th. After Auburn’s surprising 2016 season, this could be a very tough game for Clemson, especially if the offense is still finding its identity.

After a slight hiatus, the cupcake game before our annual rivalry against South Carolina is back. This year Clemson will host The Citadel, but as our feathered neighbors can tell us, this isn’t a team to take lightly. As always Clemson will finish the regular season against South Carolina on November 25th, this time in Columbia.
