GEG: How does Clemson prepare for the 12th Man?

RTR: Luckily for Clemson, the Tigers have been in many hostile environments and have a ton of experienced players who are used to playing on the big stage. At pretty much every single position, the Tigers have a guy that has played on the road in environments like Auburn, Virginia Tech, Florida State, South Carolina and against teams like Alabama and Ohio State in the College Football Playoff.

With that being said, there aren’t many places that get as loud and as hostile as College Station for opposing teams. Especially in a game like this where Texas A&M is looking to put its stamp on the College Football world with a big win in a game that will be featured on ESPN College GameDay.

For Clemson to play well, I think they’ll need to refrain from turning the ball over and rely on that veteran experience and leadership. This is probably the most hostile environment that many of those guys will ever play in, so it will be a great test, no doubt.
