The Clemson Tigers have added games against the Georgia Southern Eagles and the Charlotte 49ers to their future football schedules, the school announced today.
Clemson and Georgia Southern will square off on the gridiron for the first time at Memorial Stadium in Clemson on Sept. 15, 2018. The Eagles will receive a $1.1 million guarantee for the game.
Georgia Southern just completed their first season in the Sun Belt Conference. The Eagles, who finished 9-3 overall, won the conference championship after going undefeated (8-0).
The Charlotte 49ers will also be a first-time opponent for Clemson when they make the trip to Death Valley in 2019. Charlotte is moving up to the Football Bowl Subdivision and officially joins Conference USA on July 1.
The addition of Georgia Southern and Charlotte tentatively completes the non-conference schedule for Clemson in both 2018 and 2019. Other games scheduled for the Tigers in 2018 include Furman (Sept. 1), at Texas A&M (Sept. 8), and home vs. South Carolina (Nov. 24).
In 2019, Clemson hosts Wofford (Aug. 31) and Texas A&M (Sept. 7) and travels to face South Carolina (Nov. 30).
Clemson’s 2015 football schedule was also released today. The Tigers open the season at home against Wofford on Sept. 5.
