Kickoff times for three Clemson football games announced

May 16, 2019

The defending national champions will open the 2019 season on August 29th against Georgia Tech on the brand new ACC Network at 8:00 p.m. in Death Valley, which was announced yesterday. Clemson defeated Georgia Tech 49-21 in Atlanta last year as Trevor Lawrence threw for four touchdowns.

Kickoff for the following week’s game against Texas A&M  will be a 3:30 p.m. kickoff as the Aggies and Tigers meet for the second straight year. Clemson survived Texas A&M 28-26 last year in the final seconds as K’Von Wallace intercepted a potential game tying two-point conversion to preserve the victory. The game will be televised by ABC.

Clemson’s first road test of the year will come at Syracuse, which will be a 7:30 p.m. kickoff on ABC. This game has been split the last two years as the Tigers defeated the Orange thanks to a late touchdown by Travis Etienne. The Tigers’ last regular season loss came at the hands of the Orange in 2017 in the Carrier Dome.
