CLEMSON, S.C. — The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Clemson’s kickoff times for the first three games of the 2022 Football season on Thursday.

The Tigers will open the season on Labor Day Night (Sept. 5) against Georgia Tech in Atlanta, as part of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The game kicks off at 8 p.m., and will be televised by ESPN.

Clemson’s home open opener on Sept. 10 will be televised on the ACC Network, as the Tigers host Furman for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff.

On Sept. 17, Clemson will host Louisiana Tech at 8 p.m. It will also be carried on the ACC Network.

The ACC and ESPN also announced the rest of its ACC television schedule, as well as ESPN’s complete bowl schedule, which includes most ACC affiliated bowl games.

“We look forward to the upcoming 2022 ACC football season and anticipate a fantastic year with our student-athletes competing at the highest level for ACC and national championships,” said ACC Commissioner Jim Phillips. “As part of playing arguably the most challenging non-conference schedule in the country, we open the season with some incredible games, which include five consecutive days of football over the Labor Day weekend.

“We appreciate the outstanding coverage our television partners provide to our institutions and now with full distribution, we specifically look forward to this season of football coverage on ACC Network.”
