CLEMSON, SC - One of
the most anticipated games in school history has the potential to be record
breaking. Clemson athletics announced Tuesday it will attempt to break the
Guinness World Record for Loudest Crowd Roar at a Sports Stadium during
Saturday's top-5 football clash against Florida State.
The current Guinness
World Record of 137.5 decibels was set just last week at Arrowhead Stadium in
Kansas City. Athletic officials say the goal is to set the record on the first
defensive snap of the night.
"We have seen
numbers approaching the World Record previously, but with the magnitude of this
game, the size of the crowd and the passion of Clemson fans, there's little
doubt we will be able to set a new record," director of athletic marketing
Mike Money said.
Prior to Kansas City
claiming the title last weekend, fans at CenturyLink Field in Seattle
registered a 136.6 on Sept. 15, 2013.
