ESPN College GameDay Returning to Clemson on October 19
CLEMSON, SC - For the second time this season, ESPN's iconic college football pregame show, College GameDay Built by The Home Depot, will be in Clemson this weekend for the matchup between #3 Clemson and #5 Florida State. The show will run from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Saturday. The show will originate from the north end of Bowman Field and precede the Clemson vs. Florida State game at 8:00 PM on ABC.
It will mark GameDay's third appearance in Clemson, as GameDay was in Clemson on August 31, 2013 prior to the Tigers' contest against #5 Georgia. It also aired from Clemson on October 21, 2006 before Clemson defeated Georgia Tech.
Saturday's show will be the second broadcast from Clemson this season and will be the first time GameDay originates from the same location twice in one season since 2007. It will also mark the first time that GameDay is at the same site twice within the first eight weeks of a season.
