CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Clemson's athletic department announced it was trying to break a world record during Saturday's game for the loudest sports stadium but didn't quite make it.

The Tigers were hosting Florida State in a top-five matchup at Memorial Field.

The record of 137.5 decibels was set on Sunday by the Kansas City Chiefs fans when they hosted the Oakland Raiders.

A representative from the Guinness World Records was monitoring the volume in the stadium during the game. Officials said the crowd reached 125 decibels.
