WATCH PARTY IN DEATH VALLEY
As Clemson football fans quickly exhausted the school’s 7,500-ticket allotment for the season opener against Georgia in Athens, those without tickets began asking about the possibility of gathering in Memorial Stadium to watch the game on the video boards. Therefore, Clemson announced plans to open the lower bowl of the stadium and invite students and the community to watch the game together.
