2500 Pizzas planned for Dabo's Pizza Party

More information is coming out about Swinney's infamous pizza party on Sunday that was announced during Swinney's weekly press conference on Tuesday.
The gates in Death Valley will open at 10 AM on Sunday if Clemson wins against North Carolina on Saturday night or 2 PM if the Tigers lose.
School officials estimate 20,000 Clemson fans may make the trek to Death Valley to celebrate the teams' 12-0 undefeated regular season. This is just the second time Clemson has started a season 12-0 (1981, 2015).
The pizza ratio breakdown will be 60% meat and 40% cheese, and if Papa Johns prepares large pizzas, 2500 pizzas will be made for Sunday.
"We gonna have a pizza party on Sunday," Swinney said during his press conference. "That's gonna happen, and this thing kinda took a life of its own somehow but its kinda hard to plan for a pizza party if you do not know the outcome. You can't just plan a pizza party if you win the game cause you are not going to know until midnight or one in the morning. That's a lot of dough. As the season has planned out, the important thing, regardless if we win or not the game Saturday night, this team deserves to be celebrated. It really does. We gonna have a pizza party and (Joe G.) will give you the details of the time."
Swinney finished up by saying that "Papa Johns has stepped up. They're all in."
Swinney promised pizza back in November to all of the faithful Clemson fans.
"The only poll that we’re excited about is Dec. 6, and I promise you we’ll have the biggest poll party you’ve seen,” Swinney said. "We’ll open up Death Valley and serve pizza to everybody. That’ll be a time to celebrate a poll. Until then, it doesn’t matter."
