College GameDay heading to Clemson vs. Notre Dame

60 Comments

Notre Dame’s trip to Clemson will have ESPN’s College GameDay in attendance.

The popular traveling studio caravan will be in South Carolina, ready to take in the sights and sounds of campus as the two programs—both ranked among the top 12 teams in the country—will face off for the first time since 1977.

Saturday’s primetime affair will be the first game for Clemson since they played September 17th, a half-month layoff between a Thursday night at Louisville and welcoming the Irish to Death Valley. Last the Tigers took the field, it was their defense that held strong against the Cardinals, edging out a 20-17 win. Notre Dame’s defense looked suspect against UMass, but it’s offense put up near historic offensive numbers in the 62-27 win.

Plenty more this week on the big game, but as GameDay’s arrival suggests, this weekend is a big one.
