PACK LOOKS FOR THE CIGAR AGAINST TIGERS
NC State has not won a football game in Clemson’s Death Valley since 2002, when the Pack
won 38-6. However, in the four games played on the Tigers’ home field since then, the home
team’s margin of victory has been a slim 7.75. Close, but no cigar for the visiting Wolfpack.
Last season, the Pack ended a seven-game losing streak versus the Tigers with a 37-13
upset. Clemson was ranked seventh nationally at the time.
Clemson leads the all-time series against the Wolfpack, 51-28-1.
THE TEXTILE BOWL
Although not many of the players in uniform know about it, for the past 31 years (since 1981),
the series between NC State and Clemson has been dubbed the Textile Bowl, as that industry has such a major economic impact on both states and both schools boast renowned
The North Carolina textile manufacturers donate money to NC State’s scholarship fund every year in honor of the Wolfpack’s MVP from the game.
