The Hurricanes face their first ACC test of the season Thursday afternoon against the Clemson Tigers. Last year, the Canes traveled up to South Carolina and came away with a 3-0 win over their division foes. The game will be at Cobb Field at 7 p.m.


For Saturday’s game, the gates at Sun Life Stadium will open at 2 p.m. and kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Bus services will be transporting students; drivers will be charged $25 for parking. Students interested in purchasing a season-long parking pass may purchase them at the UC Information desk, the membership office at the wellness center or the Hecht Athletic Center for $70.


The Hurricanes golf team wrapped up its first tournament of the season in Harahan, S.C., with a 12th-place finish in the Cougar Classic. Senior Jennifer Hirano and freshman Leticia Ras-Anderica both each shot a final-round 72. The Canes will be off until Saturday when they take part in the Mary Fossum Invitational.
