Clemson, SC-Clemson will hold its annual Spring Football Game
Saturday at 1:00 PM at Riggs Field. The contest will close spring
practice for Tommy Bowden's fourth Clemson team.


The event will be held at Riggs Field due to renovations at
Clemson Memorial Stadium. Admission to the scrimmage will be free of
charge, but will be limited to IPTAY members, Clemson students,
faculty, staff and former players. Fans must have an identification
to gain admittance. Riggs Field has held as many as 8,000 fans for
soccer.


Riggs Field was the home of Clemson football from 1915-41.
Both the Clemson men's and women's soccer programs call the facility
home now. It has been converted to a football field, complete with
goalposts, for Saturday's game.


The game will be shown on live television by Comcast.
It will be the first time since the final home game of the 1941
season that the Clemson varsity has played a football game on Riggs
Field. The Clemson freshman team played the Duke freshmen team there
in 1968.


Clemson will hold a surplus merchandise sale on Saturday at the
indoor tennis facility beginning at 10:30 AM. Clemson 2002 football
posters will be available free of charge. Clemson Spring Programs
will be on sale for $5.


There will also be special halftime and pregame presentations to
Clemson football award winners and special honorees from the fall and
winter sports.


The gates to Riggs Field will open at 11:30 AM.
Clemson will practice Monday through Thursday this week on the
practice fields behind the Jervey Athletic Center.
The Clemson baseball team will also be in action on Saturday against
NC State. The first pitch is scheduled for 4:00 PM. Tickets to that
game are priced at $5 for adults and $3 for children.
The Clemson men's and women's track teams will play host to the
Clemson Invitational, an event that will go on prior to and after the
Spring football game.
