College Football: Week 9

Homecoming is something special at Clemson. I don't know what it's like at your college, but I'm going to go ahead and tell you that it's better at Clemson.

This weekend was absolutely perfect and I took a lot of pictures so uh, yeah, you've been warned.

See? Gorgeous weekend in Tiger Town.

{Homecoming Floats on Bowman Field}
We did a drive by this year & didn't actually make it to Bowman to check out the floats in person. So, naturally, I hung out the window to take pictures.

My major is way cooler than your major. Just accept that fact. On homecoming, they open up the building and let you come in to see what's changed and to print some things. Seeing what's changed wouldn't be a big thing for most people, but when your building has rooms like this, it's interesting to see what new equipment has shown up. The printing part is always fun too {now that it isn't for a grade!}


We decided to keep things simple at the tailgate this weekend and revert back to how we used to tailgate before Patrick came along with his grill & excellent grilling skills. That meant a lot of finger foods and sandwiches.

Tailgate Menu:
Chicken Salad {from Kelly's Cuisine}
Pimento Cheese {also from Kelly's Cuisine}
Fiesta Ranch Dip
Boiled Peanuts
Chick-fil-a Chicken Nuggets
Make-Your-Own Sandwich Bar
Sugar Cookies

{Clemson vs Syracuse}

My favorite tailgate to visit before the game and during halftime was picked as the Academy Sports tailgate of the week, woo! So they showed them during the game cheering and it needed a picture.

All in all it was an amazingly awesome weekend in Clemson, especially since Clemson came away with another win to make them bowl eligible. I'm sad that there are only two more weekends in Tiger Town before the season is over, but I'm so excited that Clemson has a bye weekend this weekend & that I'll be heading down to Kiawah. Yay! Cannot wait :)


  1. wow you guys go all out - i love it. i have only tailgated once and we didn't have food so clearly we did it wrong! also that is so cool you can go back in and see what's changed at your school.

  2. I need to tailgate with you guys! That menu sounds fab!
    I am glad you had a great weekend.

  3. LOL my husband and I say the same thing about our major, Sport and Entertainment. However I will say we don't get to do fun projects when we go back and visit. Haven't tried Kelly's Cuisine yet, I'll have to put it on my list for the next time I'm in Chapin.

  4. i say this every time but WHY are your tailgates so much cooler than ours?
