Clemson will celebrate Homecoming on Saturday, Oct. 26, as the Tigers welcome the Boston College Eagles for an ACC Atlantic Division matchup. Kickoff at Memorial Stadium is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
Among those coming home to Clemson this week is former linebacker Levon Kirkland, who will be enshrined in the Clemson Ring of Honor prior to the game. Inductees must already be in the Athletic Hall of Fame, have a four-year degree and have made a significant contribution to the heritage of Clemson Athletics. Home has been sweet for Clemson in recent years. The Tigers enter Saturday's game having won 19 consecutive games at Memorial Stadium and will be seeking their second home winning streak of 20 games or more in school history. Clemson's school record for consecutive home wins is 21, set across the 2013-16 seasons.
In all, Clemson has won 40 of its last 41 contests at Death Valley. Once again this week, an undefeated Clemson squad will have an opportunity to respond in the face of public doubt. Clemson has dropped in the AP Poll in each of the last two weeks despite conference wins of 31 and 35, respectively. Clemson is 23-4 under Dabo Swinney when ranked lower in the AP Poll than in its previous contest, including 15 straight wins in such scenarios
