Clemson releases Thursday update on Auburn game, Hurricane Irma
Clemson officials are monitoring the situation with Hurricane Irma
Clemson officials released the following statement Thursday morning regarding Hurricane Irma and the home game versus Auburn that is scheduled for a 7:02 kickoff time Saturday night.
"Clemson Athletics officials continue to monitor the situation around Hurricane Irma, and hope for the safety of all in its path. Our primary concern is the safety of our fans traveling to and from Clemson for this weekend's game with Auburn. We have been in contact with Auburn administration, law enforcement, government, weather and campus officials and continue dialogue around ramifications of the storm and preparations already underway.
At this time, we have no changes to previously announced schedules - kickoff time remains at 7 p.m.
Due to demands on the South Carolina Highway Patrol throughout the state, the full complement of troopers may not be able to assist with traffic management in Clemson. We ask all fans traveling to the area to be patient and plan for possible extended time getting into and out of town on gameday."
