It feels like there are two things on the minds of Clemson football fans.

The first: the rivalry game against South Carolina in Columbia next Saturday.

The second: the ACC Championship vs Miami where the winner will most likely go to the College football playoff.

But for the Clemson coaches and players, their focus is on this week's final home game against The Citadel.

"These guys are about next game and next opponent," head coach Dabo Swinney said. "We won't prepare any differently this week than we did against Florida State."

This Saturday's game will also be Senior day for the Tigers and the team will be honoring the players who will play at Memorial Stadium for the final time.

"Christian Wilkins and Taylor Hearn will be honored for sure," Swinney said. "At this point, those are the only two who have come to me and said they want to be honored."

Saturday's game against The Citadel will be played at 12:20 pm at Memorial Stadium. The Tigers' final home game of the season will be at South Carolina in a primetime game (7:30 pm) at Williams-Brice Stadium. The Tigers will then take on Miami at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte for the ACC Championship. That game will be played at 8 pm on Saturday, December 2nd.
