CLEMSON - Besides Clemson's usual annual match-up with South Carolina, it'll be Notre Dame, Wofford and Appalachian State filling out the Tigers' 2015 non-conference opponents.
Appalachian State's athletic website posted a Tuesday release indicating it will travel to Death Valley on Sept. 12, 2015, which would serve as Clemson's week two opponent. Clemson is 4-0 all-time against the Mountaineers, all at Death Valley, not having met since 1997.
The Tigers have outscored Appalachian State 145-19 in those four games. The Mountaineers are moving to the FBS level, as part of the Sun Belt Conference, in 2014.
Notre Dame will make its first trek to Memorial Stadium in 37 years on Oct. 3, 2015, previously announced as part of the Fighting Irish's new agreement to face five ACC members per year. USC hosts the Tigers on Nov. 28.
Wofford, according to a school spokesman, is scheduled to visit Clemson in 2015 on a to-be-determined date. The Tigers would either open 2015 against the Terriers, or an ACC opponent. Clemson, 11-3 all-time and 3-0 since 1940 against Wofford, last beat the Terriers 35-27 in 2011.
Without specific ACC 2015 dates in place, Clemson hosts Boston College, Georgia Tech, Florida State and Wake Forest and visits Louisville, Miami, N.C. State and Syracuse.
Clemson is still on the market for a marquee opponent to complete its 2016 slate, perhaps on the road. Currently, the Tigers are slated to host South Carolina, plus Troy out of the Sun Belt and South Carolina State from the FCS ranks.
