Clemson has added the Florida Atlantic Owls to its 2023 football schedule according to FBSchedules.com.

The Tigers will host FAU on Sept. 16, 2023, and pay the Owls a $1.2 million guarantee for the game in a contract that was signed between the two schools in 2015.

According to the Orlando Sun-Sentinel, the date is tentative and could be moved to Aug. 26, 2023 if an additional week is added to the beginning of the 2023 season.

Former Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin was named Florida Atlantic head football coach on December 12, 2016.

Clemson has played Florida Atlantic only once and defeated the Owls 54-6 in Death Valley back in 2006. Quarterback Will Proctor, in his first start as Clemson's No. 1 quarterback completed 13-of-20 passes for 160 yards and three touchdowns (30 yards to Chansi Stuckey, 14 to Aaron Kelly and 18 to Rendrick Taylor).

James Davis led the ground attack with 94 yards, including a 22-yard TD. True freshman Jacoby Ford turned in the highlight of the day, dropping a punt inside his own 10 yard line, picking it up on the fly and zooming 93 yards for a touchdown.
