The University has announced that the kickoff time for Clemson’s game this Saturday against Georgia Southern will be noon eastern, instead of the original kick time of 3:30pm.

While the rain isn’t expected to hit Clemson until late this weekend, the move was made presumably to allow the large amount of emergency services needed for the game to head to areas of the Carolinas more in-need of said services.

The game was originally slated to be on ESPN2, but due to the move to noon, it is unknown at this time where it will be broadcasted. This article will be updated when the new channel/streaming service is announced.

Stay safe out there, y’all, I know tons of you are along the coasts. Please evacuate if you need to, sleep on my couch if you have to. Being the son of a gulf coast insurance agent, I’ve seen the impacts of too many hurricanes first-hand. Don’t take them lightly.
