It's Homecoming week in Tiger Town, and everyone is loving it!  The weather has cooled down, the leaves are changing, and the football team is winning again.

This Saturday Clemson takes on Coastal Carolina. This will be the first matchup ever between the two teams, but they are scheduled to play each other again Sept. 6, 2014 again in Death Valley.

Since Halloween is on Saturday, the Chanticleers will be wearing all black, while the Tigers will be in all orange.

The Chanticleers are 3-4 overall and 0-4 on the road. This could mean extra excitement in Death Valley with a win on Homecoming.

Around campus everyone has been taking part in the festivities. Monday there was a dance competition among the sororities where the reigning champions were defeated! Tuesday was the Homecoming Pageant where 30 girls took the stage, but only 10 made it through to the Homecoming Court during the pep rally on Friday.

There is also an eight-day event, the Homecoming Build, sponsored by the school's Habitat for Humanity program, where over 500 students get together to build a house.

To end the school week on a fun note, Friday hosts the 53rd annual Tigerama Homecoming pep rally. There will be appearances by coach Dabo Swinney and the football team, along with the Rally Cats dance team and Tiger Band performing. The pep rally will end with fireworks at the West End Zone of the stadium.

The next few days will be nonstop excitement around Clemson, and I'm sure the partying will continue through the holiday weekend.
