August 31 the University of Georgia travels 75 miles up to Clemson University. Labor Day weekend, 8pm kickoff on ABC for a primetime broadcast. ESPN College Gameday will more than likely be there. Don't you want to be there as well?
Lodging is available at la casa de Finley, about 12 miles from the stadium. You can choose the lovely Hermione Granger twin bed room or the Harry Potter bunk bed room, plus lots of other space for air mattresses.
Tailgate will feature TV with Directv under an EZ Up, so a ticket is not necessary to watch to game, although it has always been said you can find a ticket if you are willing to pay the price. Food, drinks, the best BBQ around, great company, excellent atmosphere. You know you want to experience the Most Exciting 25 seconds of college football.
Georgia head coach Mark Richt said after Georgia's spring game that game planning for Clemson will be difficult.
Georgia opens the season at Clemson in what will likely be a showdown between two top-10 teams. The Tigers are returning seven starters on an offense that averaged 41 points per game, good for sixth in the country.
Richt said that breaking in his new defense against Clemson’s explosive scheme, especially the inexperienced secondary, will be a daunting task.
“It’s scary,” Richt said of gameplanning for Clemson. “They’re really good. (Quarterback Tahj) Boyd is one of the best players in America. They’ve got some really skilled receivers. They know what they’re doing. It’s going to be a big challenge, no doubt.”
