Clemson's football adventure begins today

The finacee and I are going to a cookout/party today at the home of some friends. I'm going to be the party pooper sitting on the sofa in the den watching the Tigers and the Deacons.

Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. It's on ABC. GO TIGERS!

GAME PREVIEWS: The Anderson Independent-Mail examines what happened to both teams in 2003 after Wake Forest crushed Clemson 45-17. Here, the paper predicts a 31-17 Clemson victory. The Greenville News wonders if Clemson can keep last season's late-season momentum going eight months later. There's also a game capsule.

The State lists the three keys to victory for Clemson, plus a look at how Clemson will stop Wake Forest running back Chris Barklay. There's also a list of returning leaders and the starting lineups, plus this long file that contains a lot of the above plus a list of which team has the edge in which aspect of the game.

And here's the preview from the Winston-Salem Journal.

OTHER STORIES: Here's a quick Q&A with defensive lineman Eric Coleman, and here's a story about free tickets available to fans fleeing Hurricane Frances.

AROUND THE ACC: In other games today, Duke is at Navy, Georgia Tech hosts Samford, Maryland entertains Northern Illinois, William and Mary visits North Carolina, Richmond is at N.C. State and Virginia travels to Temple.
