“Both administrations have been in contact concerning the site of this game, and I have discussed it with Temple Head Coach Al Golden,” said Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden. “Both of us are in favor of the move.

“From our standpoint, It gives our fans, especially those in the Charlotte area, a chance to see us in an outstanding NFL facility. This is another testimony to our great fan support,” said Bowden.
