Clemson University newest school to raise Allstate’s “Good Hands®” Net

by -

NORTHBROOK, Ill. – August 29, 2013 – Clemson University is kicking off the 2013 college football season with a new addition to Memorial Stadium – the Allstate “Good Hands®” Field Goal Net program. Clemson is one of three new schools to partner with Allstate Insurance Company and participate in the ninth year of the “Good Hands®” Field Goal Net program, one of the most visible programs in college football.

This season, Tigers fans have another reason to cheer for the kicker, as each successful extra point and field goal at home games generates money for their school’s general scholarship fund. During games at Memorial Stadium, starting with the matchup with University of Georgia on August 31, Allstate is donating $300 for each field goal and $100 for each extra point successfully converted by the Tigers.

“Allstate is thrilled to have Clemson as a partner in the ‘Good Hands®’ Nets program, an initiative we believe will have a positive impact both out on the football field and in the classroom,” said Lisa Cochrane, senior vice president of marketing for Allstate. “We share the same passion that Clemson fans have for college football, and we will be cheering the Tigers on to many field goals and extra points this season.”

Clemson, the University of Maryland and the University of Texas join 75 other colleges and universities at both the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision and Division I Football Championship Subdivision in the "Good Hands®" Field Goal Net program. Since 2005, Allstate has donated more than $3 million to partner schools’ general scholarship funds.

The translucent netting that includes the “Good Hands®” logo has been placed in the east end zone at Memorial Stadium and will be raised during all field goal and extra point attempts. The “Good Hands®” logo represents the company’s brand promise of “protection” and plays off its popular slogan, "You’re in good hands with Allstate®."

Allstate and Clemson Athletics will host a special kick promotion at the Tigers’ home game on Thursday, November 14, where one lucky fan will be selected by the school to kick a 25-yard field goal for $2,000, half of which will be donated to the Clemson general scholarship fund.

In addition to the Allstate “Good Hands®” Field Goal Net program, Allstate’s expansive presence in college football includes its sponsorship of the Allstate® Sugar Bowl® and Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®.

The Allstate sponsorship at Clemson University was brokered by Learfield Sports, the school’s multimedia rights partner.
