Hurricane Ian may send 'College GameDay' indoors at Clemson – USA TODAY

  • September 29, 2022

CLEMSON, South Carolina — With Hurricane Ian expected to bring high winds and heavy rain to South Carolina on Saturday, ESPN is considering indoor options for its “College GameDay” program.
The broadcast is scheduled for 9 a.m. ET until noon at Bowman Field on Clemson’s campus, but could be moved to an indoor location, such as Littlejohn Coliseum.
“Depending on the weather, we’re looking at alternative locations indoor on campus,” Julie McKay, senior publicist for college sports at ESPN told the Greenville News. “We’re closely monitoring the storm, but are planning for a normal ‘GameDay’ experience. Public safety is always our primary concern, so if anything changes we will be prepared to adjust accordingly.”
“College GameDay,” which features Rece Davis, Desmond Howard, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, David Pollack and Pat McAfee, will be making its eighth appearance on the Clemson campus.
No. 5 Clemson (4-0) will play No. 10 North Carolina State (4-0) on Saturday (7:30 p.m., ABC) at Clemson’s Memorial Stadium.
“Clemson Athletics is engaged in consistent dialogue with our university campus safety personnel each game week, and we’ll continue to be in regular communication should the outlook worsen,” said Jeff Kallin, Clemson’s senior associate athletic director for communications.
Anticipating inclement weather in the Columbia area, South Carolina moved its football game against South Carolina State from noon Saturday to 7 p.m. Thursday.
