Tiger fans can now make plans for the 2018 football season as the full schedule is now available.

The Tigers will begin league play September 22nd against Georgia Tech in Atlanta. The good news is that the Tigers will get two weeks of triple option prep as Clemson will host the Georgia Southern Eagles from the Sun Belt Conference the week prior, who also run the triple option. Clemson's open date comes on October 13, right before the Tigers enter what could be the toughest part of the season, which has the game at FSU game sandwiched between home games with NC State and Louisville. The Tigers end the season with home games against Duke and South Carolina. Based on recent history, the Duke game should be Military Appreciation Day and feature the official Senior Day ceremonies.

Other positive notes on the ACC schedule include that the Tigers will not play any Thursday or Friday Night games, and that the only ACC team to have a bye week before facing Clemson will be NC State. Virginia Tech and Florida State will cap off opening weekend with a Labor Day night game in Tallahassee. Since the 2005 season, Florida State has played six times on Labor Day, including the 2007 Bowden Bowl where Clemson knocked off the Noles 24-18 in Death Valley. Once again, the ACC Championship Game will be played at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, and will be held on Saturday, December 1st. Please visit TheACC.com to view the schedule in it's entirety.
