Clemson adds The Citadel, rounds out 2020 schedule

Clemson football has added its 11th and final game to the 2020 schedule: The Citadel. At the time of the ACC announcing its full 10-plus-1 schedule for the 2020 fall season, Clemson was one of two programs looking to add a non-conference opponent. Problem solved. Clemson will host the game, too.

The Tigers are schedule to open the 2020 season at the road against Wake Forest: Sept. 12. After that, it’s home for The Citadel. Clemson will then have an open date before two more home games: Virginia (Oct. 3) and Miami (Oct. 10).

Clemson hasn’t played The Citadel since the 1978 season. The Tigers have a 24-3-1 advantage in the series. The Citadel’s last victory over Clemson nearly 100 years ago — back in 1926.
