Clemson’s Orange-White spring game, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, April 7, has been moved forward a week to Saturday April 14.

The annual intrasquad scrimmage will kick off at 4 p.m.

Head football coach Dabo Swinney also announced that the first day of spring practice has been pushed forward, as well, from Friday, March 2, to Wednesday, March 7.

Spring game weekend will also include Clemson’s home baseball series against NC State and a home women’s tennis match. Jack Leggett’s Tigers will face the Wolfpack on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with the Saturday game set to begin at noon.

The nationally-ranked women’s tennis team will take on Wake Forest at 11 a.m. on the Tigers’ outdoor courts at Hoke Sloan Tennis Center.

Swinney has also set his national signing day press conference on Wednesday, Feb. 1, for 2:30 p.m.

The ACC’s schools are still awaiting release of the 2012 football schedule by the conference office. Last year’s schedule was released on Feb. 14, while the previous year’s was released on Feb. 4.

The first three games on Clemson’s schedule were announced last spring. The Tigers will open their season against Auburn on Saturday, Sept. 1, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, and then will play at home the following two weekends against Ball State and Furman. The South Carolina game will be played on Saturday, Nov. 24, at Death Valley.

Clemson knows it will play Georgia Tech, Maryland, NC State and Virginia Tech at home, and Boston College, Duke, Florida State and Wake Forest on the road.

Unknown is the status of Pittsburgh and Syracuse entrance to the conference, which is why football scheduling has not been finished.
