Earlier today ESPN announced that College Game Day would be heading to Louisville, Kentucky for Clemson’s trip up north. Now they have also announced a time change to 8pm EST, which likely means a kickoff closer to 8:30pm EST.
This summer when ESPN announced kickoff times the Clemson - Louisville games was put into the 3:30 pm EST slot. Week 3 had some potential with interesting games like Miami - FSU and Texas - USC. But after Texas looked lackluster against Maryland and Miami - FSU was postponed during Hurricane Irma the week 3 college football schedule lost a bit of luster.
Now Clemson has another opportunity to shine under the lights, this time on the road. Last year Louisville hosted FSU for College Game Day and absolutely throttled the Seminoles 63-20 in Lamar Jackson’s coming out party. They will be looking for an opportunity to do it to Clemson this year.
The site of College Game Day is TBD right now because the location used last year is currently under construction. Keep an eye out for the location announcement in case you are interested in attending.
