Clemson University has a huge rivalry with fellow in-state school South Carolina. The annual football game between the two school draws massive crowds. Football at Clemson is played at Memorial Stadium, affectionately nicknamed "Death Valley". The team is taken by bus to The Hill five minutes before game-time where the players huddle, rub "Howard's Rock", then in one big bull rush when Tiger Rag is played they run down the hill onto the field. A great tradition, this has been called "the most exciting 25 seconds in college football" by sportscaster Brent Musburger.
