The exact kickoff time will be announced at a later date. The announcement was made Tuesday in conjunction with the release of the entire Mid-American Conference schedule.
"Both administrations have been in contact concerning the
site of this game, and I have discussed it with Temple Head Coach Al
Golden," said Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden. "Both of us are in
favor of the move.
"From our standpoint, It gives our fans, especially those in
the Charlotte area, a chance to see us play in an outstanding NFL
facility. This is another testimony to our great fan support," said
This will give Clemson two Thursday night games on its
12-game regular season schedule, the first time that has happened
since 2002. The other Thursday night game is at Virginia Tech on
October 26. The Virginia Tech game will be televised by ESPN, but
there are not plans for a live broadcast of the Temple vs. Clemson
game at this point.
Clemson will play at Wake Forest the previous Saturday, giving the
Tigers just four days to prepare for Temple. That will also be the
case when Clemson meets Virginia Tech on Thursday, October 26 as the
Tigers will have played Georgia Tech the previous Saturday. But, In
both instances, the opposition will have played a game the previous
Saturday, as well, giving both teams the same preparation time.
Ticket prices for the Temple vs. Clemson game will be
announced at a later date.
