College Gameday • Saturday, Oct. 1

College GameDay Home


The show will emanate live from Bowman Field on Clemson’s campus.


Bowman Field will open at 6 a.m. in advance of ESPN College GameDay, which airs live from 9 a.m. until noon each Saturday during college football season. There may be a few “look-ins” on SportsCenter prior to 9 a.m.


Admission is free to the event. 


IPTAY parking lots open at 8 a.m. on Oct. 1. with adjacent lots held earlier. Fans who wish to attend may park in their assigned spot and walk to the event. Fans who park in an IPTAY lot without proper placard may be subject to towing. Fans are encouraged to find parking in downtown and support local businesses. 


University buildings in the area will not be open to the public, but portable restrooms are available. 


ADA parking is available behind Sikes Hall with a state-approved placard. This lot is adjacent to Bowman Field. 


Clemson students will have the opportunity to enter “The Pit” area by re-registering for access. ESPN will select a limited number of winners to have access to the area at the beginning of the show.


The football game between the two top-15 programs will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium and will be televised by ABC and streamed via the ESPN app. Tickets for the event are sold out.
