Clemson made it through a frigid practice today at Charlotte Country Day High School as it resumed its preparation for Friday’s Mieneke Car Care Bowl. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney called it a productive workout and praised the way his team battled through the cold weather.
It took workers several hours to clear the snow of the practice field this morning but by the time the Tigers opened practice around 11:40, all the snow was plowed and the field was relatively free of snow. It was still a wet and slick track out there, but the team made due.
South Florida decided not to brave the conditions outdoors. Skip Holtz opted not to practice at Please Charlotte Latin High School and moved the Bulls workout inside to the Charlotte Convention Center.
Both team’s were scheduled to visit Lowes Motor Speedway tomorrow, but that has been moved to Wednesday. Each team will make a visit to a Charlotte hospital and then workout on the Carolina Panthers practice fields. South Florida will practice at 11:00 A.M. and Clemson will follow at 1:30.
The good news for both teams is that warmer weather is on the way. Temperatures are expected to rise every day this week and the game day forecast is calling for partly cloudy skies and a high of 55 degrees.
