CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) β€” Clemson will open its home season against Citadel on Sept. 19, filling the only non-conference spot on its COVID-19 affected schedule.

The Tigers were originally supposed to play Citadel on Nov. 14.

That changed when the Atlantic Coast Conference went to a 10-game conference schedule with one non-conference opponent.

Clemson’s other planned non-conference games prior to the pandemic were Akron, Notre Dame and annual state rival South Carolina.

Clemson will go to Notre Dame Nov. 7 as part of the ACC schedule.

Citadel is part of the Southern Conference, which delayed its league season until the spring.
