CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Both Clemson and South Carolina will kick off week two of college football with their first home games of the season on Saturday.

The 12th-ranked Clemson University Tigers host the Ball State Cardinals with a game time of 12:30 p.m. The game will be televised regionally on the ACC Network.

The Tigers return to Death Valley after a 26-19 win over the Auburn Tigers in Atlanta on Sept. 1. Ball State visits Clemson after beating Eastern Michigan 37-26 last week.

Tiger fans will notice that Memorial Stadium got a "facelift" during the offseason, with the addition of a new Jumbotron above The Hill, along with two more on either side of the WestZone.

The ninth-ranked University of South Carolina football team will host the East Carolina Pirates, with game time set for 12:21 p.m. The game will be televised regionally on the SEC Network.

The Gamecocks defeated the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville Aug. 30, 17-13. ECU travels to Columbia after beating Appalachian State 35-13 last week.

Gamecock fans will also enjoy some new features in and around Williams-Brice Stadium, including a new $6.5 million high-definition video board, located above the north end zone stands. The video board measures 36' by 124' and is the third largest in the SEC.

Fans headed to the game can watch The Gamecock Walk, which will take place about 10 a.m. on Saturday at a new parking facility, located on the former Farmers Market site.
