Coldest game in Death Valley you remember?

SCar in 1998....

A cold front rolled through at half. Everybody was in shorts and shirtsleeves and the temp dropped 30 degrees with whipping wind.

I chattered through the rest of the game. Temp-wise it wasn't that cold, but for how we were dressed and acclimated, we all froze.

Freezing rain and wet seats had most folks standing throughout the game...Tigers won 7-6.


^^^This game trumps any since then for cold and misery

In Death Vslley yes to this game

Rain

Just unbearable

And wind, don't forget that - I thought one punt was going


Posted: Aug 26, 2015 3:00 PM
 

to come back to the punter. Almost all the game was played on my end of the field because they couln't kick it to midfield. I was at most of the games mentioned here, including the Panthers-49ers and nothing matched this game for cold, wet, and wind.

Definitely. My roommate from Clemson (class of 68) and I went to game. He spent the next week in bed with cold.

Also at North Carolina in 1991 (I think). Same weather conditions.

I was in the pressbox for that game(not heated and very drafty at the time)and when I went to the toilet at half-time the water in the bowl was iced over.


First Bowden Bowl was a bit chilly***

'72 versus South Carolina gets my vote. 33 and freezing rain is about as bad as it can be.

I remember my dad went to this game and he....


Posted: Aug 25, 2015 5:18 PM
 

came home with a red, wind-whipped face, and caught a cold as a result. He said it was miserably cold. Although he gave me these black panther gloves that he bought at the game and I had those for years.

Scar game in 2008.

Not sure what the temp was, but I was freezing. The kids were freezing. The wind was brutal. I was 7 months pregnant and had to carry my then 3 year old daughter back to the tailgate while shuffling my 5 year old son along. When we got back to DKS, my tent was in the pond :( ... so I had to go and get it. Brrrr!

i don't remember that one being bad


Posted: Aug 25, 2015 3:59 PM
 

it was just misty and rainy but not particularly cold.


Re: i don't remember that one being bad

I'm a girl and I was pregnant and my tent was in the pond. I was cold in so many ways.

I remember Clemson vs. South Carolina 1996


Posted: Aug 25, 2015 4:00 PM
 

being very cold, if I have the year right, I believe that was the one we lost on Padgett missing the fieldgoal.

But, I believe the Clemson vs. South Carolina with The Catch 2 was colder and the coldest I remember.

2002 chicks vs Tigers at the Valley. I believe it was mid 20's at half.


Georgia Tech in 2013... it was really cold at the start


Posted: Aug 25, 2015 6:08 PM
 

and as it got later and people left the stadium after halftime (since it was a blowout win for us), it got even more brutally cold.

This particular game was not in DV, but it was when Clemson played in the Peach Bowl against Baylor. I believe it was in either 1978 or 1979. It dropped 40 degrees during the game and no one was prepared.I have never been so cold in my life. To top it off, we lost!


Not in DV, but bowl game against Baylor

Re: Not in DV, but bowl game against Baylor

The weather became worse as the game progressed in the Peach Bowl, and maybe because we were losing. What I remember about this game is moving from 30yard line seats which were in the open to endzone seats on the upper level where there was some cover.

However, I still think the 1972 South Carolina game in DV was the coldest I've been at a game. I think the weather improved a smidgen in the third quarter only to worsen in the fourth.

The Year was 2013, I had just traveled from some distant land in the Middle East back to the United States. I had arrived just in time to travel to Death Valley to watch Clemson play GT. Ah yes, I remember it like it was yesterday. The date was Thursday, November 14th, 2013. A game in which the Clemson Tigers dominated and won 55-31. As soon as I landed, I had just enough time to link up with a friend and head in to Clemson from Greenville. What I didn't have time to do was, laundry.

So there I was rolling around in jeans that didn't quite fit me all that well anymore, and with no undershorts on top of that. The jeans I wore that night were kind of old and worn down so the inevitable took place. I went to sit down on the cold metal bleachers and... "rriiiipp"... That's right folks, my trousers had an emergency on their hands. What made matters worse was that my dingle dongles were now resting miserably on the icy cold aluminum bleachers. The people behind me kept on wondering why I wasn't cheering to which my friend replied, "he isn't feeling so well". I had to wait until half-time to go to buy something to wear at one of the gift shops. So now I was wearing some Clemson sweats over the top of my clothes. The good news was that I was no longer cold, (or naked), and I now have some sweats to workout in at the gym while representing my favorite football team.

2009 FSU may not be the coldest, but I remember I did actually get pneumonia after that game.
