Though [I’m still basking in the glow of Clemson’s national title victory](http://ropedrop.net/2017/01/congratulations-to-the-national-champion-clemson-tigers/)), [Clemson’s 2017 schedule has been released](http://www.shakinthesouthland.com/2017/1/24/14371280/2017-clemson-football-schedule-released). After a warm-up on September 2nd against Kent State, Clemson’s welcomes Auburn on September 9th (which should give us a good idea of the 2017 Tigers).
Clemon’s ACC opener comes next and its [against Louisville on September 16](http://sports.yahoo.com/news/clemson-begins-acc-title-defense-with-trip-to-louisville-191958381.html). This is kind of a bummer since it doesn’t give Clemson much time to adjust to life without Deshuan Watson. (As a side note, [Louisville plays Carolina the week before](http://www.tarheelblog.com/2017/1/24/14373052/unc-football-2017-schedule-tar-heels-louisville-notre-dame).)
Major remaining games include at Virginia Tech on September 30, home against Florida State on November 11, and at South Carolina on November 25th.
Should be an interesting year.
