In 1896, football coach Walter Riggs pertained to Clemson, then Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina, from Auburn University. He had always admired the Princeton Tigers, and hence offered Clemson the Tiger mascot. The Clemson Tigers field seventeen athletic teams. Guy’s sports are football, basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis, golf, track and field (indoor and outdoor) and cross-country. Women’s sports are basketball, soccer, tennis, golf, volley ball, track and field (indoor and outside), cross-country and rowing. The South Carolina Gamecocks are Clemson’s in-state athletic competitor. The two institutions compete against each other in numerous sports, but the annual football game gets the most attention. Clemson’s main competitors within the Atlantic Coast Conference are Georgia Tech and Florida State.
