By visiting Facebook.com/CollegeColorsDay, Tiger fans can register to vote for Clemson as the school with the most college spirit and loyal fan base.
The Facebook-based rivalry competition, which includes more than 160 participating colleges and universities and is an element of this year's 2013 College Colors Day celebration, kicks off Monday, August 12 and runs through 11:59 PM EST on Thursday, August 29.
