Tentative Game Times Announced for Three Clemson Home Games

by -
The Clemson vs. Georgia game has been tentatively set for a 12:00 noon kickoff.

Clemson, SC-The Clemson athletic department has announced tentative
kickoff times for its first three home football games of the 2003
season. Kickoff times won't be final until various television
networks make their broadcast decision in June.

The Clemson vs. Georgia game has been tentatively set for a
12:00 noon kickoff. It is anticipated that one of the television
networks will broadcast that game live.

It will be the Bulldogs first trip to Clemson since 1995. The
Bulldogs defeated the Tigers 31-28 in a night game in Athens to open
the 2002 season, the 11th time in the last 16 meetings that the
outcome has been decided by a touchdown or less.

The Clemson vs. Furman game of September 6 and the Clemson
vs. Middle Tennessee game of September 13 have been tentatively
scheduled for a 5:00 PM kickoff. The Furman game will be Hall of
Fame Day, while the Middle Tennessee game has been designated as
Youth Day. Neither game is expected to be on live television.


What do you think about a noon start for the Georgia football game?

Love it

Not the best but works for me

Hate it

It could be 3am... I'm just ready for football

"With an average mid-day temperature in the mid-80s in
Clemson for the first two weeks of September, we thought it was
necessary to move the kickoff time for non-televised games to late
afternoon," said Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips. "We are
sensitive to weather issues that time of the year for our fans. At
the same time, this will give our fans who come from long distances
time to return home the same day."

Clemson's home games with Virginia (Oct. 11, Homecoming),
North Carolina (October 25, Parents Day), Florida State (November 8)
and Duke (Nov. 15, Military Appreciation Day), will be announced 12
days prior to the game.
