With the recent signing of a contract for a game against Troy at Death Valley on Sept. 10, 2016, Clemson's future football schedule continues to take shape.

With the exception of the order of games, the 2014 schedule is set, with non-conference games at Georgia, and at home against South Carolina, Coastal Carolina and Georgia State. The Georgia game in Athens is scheduled for August 30, followed the next weekend by Coastal Carolina.

The Tigers' 2014 conference schedule includes home games against Louisville, Syracuse, N.C. State and North Carolina, with road games at Boston College, Georgia Tech, Florida State and Wake Forest.

In 2015, the Tigers will play Notre Dame at Death Valley and will play at South Carolina. The website FBSchedules.com also lists Wofford as an opponent.

In addition to their home game against the Irish, Clemson will play Boston College, Georgia Tech, FSU and Wake Forest at home, and Miami, Louisville, N.C. State and Syracuse on the road.

The addition of Troy for 2016 gives the Tigers three non-conference games for that season, along with South Carolina and S.C. State. Pittsburgh will be Clemson's cross-division opponent in 2016. There has been talk of the Chick-fil-A Bowl's interest in staging a Clemson-Georgia meeting for its 'Kickoff Classic' that season.

The game against Troy will be the second between the teams. Troy led Clemson 16-13 at the half in the 2011 season opener at Death Valley, but the Tigers came back to win, 43-19.

The second rotation of games against Notre Dame will begin in 2017, but specifics have not yet been announced. Clemson will play at South Bend sometime in the 2017-19 rotation.

Earlier this year, the ACC announced cross-division opponents through the 2024 season. Clemson will play Virginia Tech in 2017, Duke in 2018, North Carolina in 2019, Virginia in 2020, Pittsburgh in 2021, Miami in 2022, Duke in 2023, and Virginia Tech in 2024.
