Clemson Vs. Notre Dame Game Will Be Played, Parking May Be Affected By Weather

Clemson, SC – Clemson Athletics officials met Friday morning and confirmed their ability to operate the game Saturday evening at 8:00 p.m. with Notre Dame University.

As of 9:30 a.m. Friday morning, officials say they still feel confident in the resources needed.

Clemson officials spoke with the South Carolina Highway Patrol and Campus Police Friday morning and confirmed their manpower will be available. Clemson’s Facilities Department has confirmed power, plumbing, and operations are still good to go. The playing surface is still good, as well, according to officials.

Grass parking lots may be limited and officials are working on alternatives. Fans are encouraged to carpool or consolidate into vehicles with paved parking by meeting off campus to limit cars in grass lots. Parking information will be updated Friday afternoon.

There have been reported power outages on campus, but none have effected Memorial Stadium. ESPN/ABC is running 100% on generator power and Clemson officials have decreased all power usage – lights, video boards, etc. – throughout the stadium and Riggs Field to assist with the campus grid.

Both soccer games scheduled for Friday night at Riggs Field are moving ahead as scheduled. ESPN’s College Gameday is still on schedule at Bowman Field for 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Saturday morning.

The game can be seen live on WJBF News Chanel 6 Saturday night at 8:00 p.m.
