Long Description:
Clemson’s Memorial Stadium is known by the Tiger faithful as “Death Valley” and is the home to the 2017 NCAA Division I National Football Champions. The stadium opened on September 19, 1942 with the Tigers defeating Presbyterian College 32-13. Long time and legendary Coach Frank Howard began using the name “Death Valley” in the 1950 façade of the upper deck reads “Welcome to Death Valley.” The stadium is also home to one of college football’s most unique traditions. In the early 1960’s a friend of Coach Howards gave the coach a large rock taken from Death Valley, California. For several years, Coach Howard used the rock as a door stop before telling an assistant to get rid of it. The assistant placed the rock on a pedestal at the top of the hill in the east end zone of the stadium. On September 24,1966, the players began rubbing the rock before the ran down the hill. Clemson defeated the University of Virginia 40-35 and the Tradition of Howard’s Rock was born. Today, the stadium has a capacity of about 85,000 Tiger Fans and is one of the most feared venues in college sports.
