The national champion Clemson Tigers football team will visit the White House on Jan. 14, President Donald Trump announced in a tweet Friday.
“I look forward to hosting, right out of the great State of South Carolina, the 2019 NCAA Football Champion Clemson Tigers at the White House on Monday, January 14th. What a game, what a coach, what a team!” President Trump wrote.
It will be the second trip to the Trump White House for Clemson, which beat Alabama 44-16 in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday. The Tigers also visited in 2017 after they beat the Crimson Tide for the 2016 national championship.
Championship teams visiting the White House became a yearly tradition late in the 20th century under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
