Week 13: The Rivalry

The last home football game.


Actually, it's the last football game that we'll attend this season, home or away. Clemson has at least two more games {ACC Championship game & a bowl / CFP game} before their season is over but we'll be watching from afar this year.
It was the perfect weekend to be in Clemson: great weather, awesome friends, a lot of fun tailgating, and an even better game!
We kicked off the weekend in downtown Clemson on Friday night. Want to know the last time that I went downtown Clemson on a Friday night before a football game? My senior year of college, six years ago.

Saturday morning, we were up bright & early to head back to campus to tailgate. We popped into Tiger Town Tavern for a little bit first though before walking over to our tailgate spot.
It was the perfect day to be out tailgating.
It wouldn't be a complete Clemson/Carolina tailgate without this particular picture of the three of us. Taking a serious picture with these two is next to impossible!
& then we were off to the game!
If you were a Clemson fan - you loved every second of that game from the opening kickoff until the final seconds ticked off the clock. Deshaun Watson was flawless. The seniors were making plays left and right to redeem themselves from the Pitt game two weeks prior. Me? I was just trying to behave myself in the stands.
But 56-7? Doesn't get much better than that.
I used to think that 63-17 was my all time favorite Clemson/USC game and while it's still up there in the top 2, this past weekend might just top it. Maybe. Jury is still out on that!
Next up: the ACC Championship Game! I am so sad that we won't be attending this year. I love running the ACC Championship 5K and going to the game in Charlotte was always so much fun.


  1. Wow, 56-7, what a game! We (Georgia) lost to Georgia Tech this weekend. It was a disappointing loss for our last game of the season, but I'm hopeful we'll come back stronger next year.

  2. Oh man - that is a whooping!! I wish UF won this past weekend...but gah they didn't!! Glad you had a great time! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. So fun! Can you believe that I've actually only ever been to one college football game ever? I went to a small private school so we didn't have a big football team or anything. But the one I went to (Oklahoma State) was really fun!

  4. YAY, GO TIGERS! Such an awesome game, I'm so jealous you guys went! It was absolute perfection.

  5. Oh man, I was thinking about you this weekend when I saw the match up! I'm sure your hubby wasn't happy with the outcome but what a huge win for you guys!! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  6. I love seeing all the burgundy and orange outfits! It reminds me of my college days at Virginia Tech. Glad you had a wonderful time tailgating

    Happy Monday

  7. Glad you guys had a great last tailgate and game! When we were listening to Game Day on the way up to Penn State Saturday I was telling Derek about you two and how both your teams were playing - good thing we both cheer for the same in our house, ha!
