November 9 in Clemson History

  • 1899: In the fourth game of a six-game season, Clemson administers second dose of shut-out to poor South Carolina team in two years, winning in Columbia, 34-0. The Tigers have a 4-2 season record, USC a 2-3 final. Clemson leads the series, 3-1.
  • 1907: In third game in six days, Clemson loses at home to Davidson, 6-10, putting series record at 3-1-1, Davidson's first victory over the Tigers.
  • 1911: Georgia shuts-out Clemson, 0-22, in a game played in Augusta, Georgia. The Tigers still lead the series, 8-6-1.
  • 1918: In a homegame, Clemson is defeated by Camp Hancock, 13-66. This was a squad from the U.S. Army camp of that name located in Georgia. As this is the only meeting with this team, the all-time record is 0-1-0.
  • 1929: Clemson is defeated by Virginia Military Institute, 0-12, in Norfolk, Virginia.
  • 1957: Clemson defeats Maryland in Memorial Stadium, 26-7, for Homecoming. The post-game dance has music provided under the direction of Bill Snyder "and his magic piano." (TAPS 1958, Volume XLVIII, page 134.)
  • 1984: As the start of a special first annual Spirit Blitz, students engage in the Great Hokie Hunt, following clues in The Tiger and on WSBF, and searching across campus sites, with the winner receiving a trip to Cancun, Mexico. On Friday night, 10,000 turn out for a pep rally on the intramural field, followed by a concert by the Spongetones. Then a 90-foot screen atop Memorial Stadium brightens the sky with LASERCAST, a "glittering bombardment of multi-colored laser beams never before seen in the Carolinas."
  • 2007: The Department of Performing Arts celebrates the life of Thomas Green Clemson in a special event in the Brooks Center at 8 p.m. Featuring music, poetry, and dramatic vignettes, this kaleidoscopic multi-media concert showcases faculty and students in a depiction of Clemson's life. All proceeds benefit the Department of Performing Arts scholarship fund. $12 for adults, $5 for students.
