CLEMSON, S.C. — The Atlantic Coast Conference announced its 2023 football schedule on Monday. For the second straight season, Clemson will open on Labor Day when the Tigers face the Duke Blue Devils at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, N.C., before returning to Memorial Stadium for Clemson’s home opener against Charleston Southern on Saturday, Sept. 9.

Clemson’s 2023 campaign will include seven home games and five road contests as Head Coach Dabo Swinney chases College Football Hall of Famer Frank Howard in pursuit of becoming the winningest head coach in program history.
