The Clemson Tigers have moved their game vs. Georgia Southern up to noon Saturday to try and get themselves in and out of Death Valley before the worst of Hurricane Florence hits the Upstate.
The Tigers announced the change early in the afternoon, moments before USC announced they will cancel their matchup with Marshall scheduled for Saturday.
Clemson Athletics cited the distance from the coast and also the timeline of the storm as reasons to keep the game on Saturday, as it will be the only college game played in the state that day.
Head Coach Dabo Swinney detailed Wednesday that he’s not involved with those discussions, saying “Just tell me when we have to play, and we’ll go play.”
