The Clemson Tigers college football team competes as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), representing Clemson University in the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Since the establishment of the team in 1896, Clemson has appeared in 36 bowl games.[1][2] Included in these games are 7 combined appearances in the traditional "big four" bowl games (the Rose, Sugar, Cotton, and Orange).[2][3] Clemson's 18 bowl wins place it tied for 17th (with Miami (FL)) in all-time bowl wins.[4]
