ESPN’s College GameDay to Visit Clemson on Saturday

Oct. 16, 2006

CLEMSON, SC – ESPN’s College GameDay Built By The Home Depot will originate from Clemson on Saturday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Bowman Field on the Clemson University campus. The #12 ranked Tigers (6-1, 3-1 ACC) will play host to #13 Georgia Tech (5-1, 3-0 ACC) on Saturday at 7:45 PM on ESPN.

Fans are invited to Bowman Field, where Chris Fowler, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, and Desmond Howard will host the two-hour show from a stage at the north end of the field (closest to Mell Hall). GameDay is in its 20th year of existence, its 13th year as a traveling program to campus sites, but this will be the first time the program will originate from Clemson.

Bowman Field is also the site of Clemson’s Homecoming floats, which will present a unique setting for the program. The long range weather forecast calls for a sunny day with temperatures in the high 60s.

Bowman Field was the home field for the Tiger football team from 1896 to 1914, which included a four-year stint by Head Coach John Heisman from 1900-03. It is situated in the middle of the Clemson campus adjacent to Tillman Hall and Sikes Hall.
