Humanitarian Bowl Notes

With temperatures expected to be around 25 degrees for kickoff, the Tigers will have to adjust their gameplan around the weather in Boise.

Today's Events:
Clemson will begin its activities at noon Mountain time with its only scheduled press conference of the week.

The Tigers will then practice from 12:30 to 2 p.m. before participating in a community outreach event. Selected players will visit St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center and The Ronald McDonald House. Players will present children with gifts and autographed footballs.

From 6 to 8:30 tonight, players, coaches, bands and cheerleaders from both teams will participate in a tailgate party that is scheduled to include a karaoke event involving Clemson players.

Other Notes:
This will be the first game that the Tigers have played on artificial turf since the 1999 Peach Bowl against Mississippi State.

Game time temperatures are expected to be in the mid 20's Monday morning.

The Tigers bought or rented full-body tights and ski hoods, just like the Buffalo Bills of the NFL wear. The suits trap the players´ body heat and were worn by most players at practice.

The Humanitarian Bowl has sold approximately 23,000 of the 30,000 available tickets. Of those 23,000, about 3,000 are expected to be Clemson fans and 1,500 are expected to travel from Louisiana Tech.
