Wolfpack fans can count the 2021 Textile Bowl as a success from both inside Carter-Finley Stadium, where NC State defeated Clemson 27-21 in overtime, and outside the stadium, where the Wilson College of Textiles and North Carolina Textile Foundation‘s (NCTF) tailgate hosted alumni, students, parents, staff, faculty and other friends of the college.

North Carolina barbecue and visits from Mr. and Ms. Wuf, the marching band, and NC State cheerleaders were all highlights of the biennial tradition.

Below, relive the 2021 tailgate in photos.
