October 7 in Clemson History

  • 1899: Clemson opens season with road game against Georgia, the third meeting with the school, but the Tigers are defeated, 0-11. Georgia leads the series 3-0.
  • 1922: Clemson crushes Newberry College, 57-0, in second home game of the season.
  • 1977: Tigerama held in Death Valley.
  • 1978: Homecoming game versus Virginia Tech. Clemson blanks Tech, 38-0. Bob Hope appears at Littlejohn Coliseum in his last visit to Clemson.
  • 1994: A male student is arrested, accused of indecent exposure by a female janitor in a dormitory bathroom when he accidentally drops his towel, but is released the following day. The university employee attempts to extort $1,000 from the student "to pay her medical bills" in exchange for dropping charges. The student reports this to the police department after haggling her down to $600. The authorities provide the student with the money in marked bills and equip him with a wire recorder. He then hands off the cash and she is arrested for taking money to compound and conceal an offense and with obstruction of justice.
  • 2006: Clemson road trips to Winston-Salem for game with the undefeated (5-0) Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Clemson is favored by 16. Game on ESPN with a noon kick-off. Tigers explode in the fourth quarter after trailing for most of the game to win, 27-17. The Kent State Golden Flashes win their first road trip since 1987 in Philadelphia, 28-10, against the Temple Owls, extending the hapless team from the City of Brotherly Love's losing streak to eighteen, the longest in Division I-A football. This is Clemson's next opponent, folks. Chalk up a win!
