ESPN College GameDay at Clemson

A Clemson victory over Boston College will almost certainly bring ESPN's College GameDay back to Bowman Field for the second time this season.

ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit tweeted on Wednesday that given a Tiger victory, the chances are "very, very, very good' the Saturday kickoff show will be back at Clemson for the Florida State game on Oct. 19.

Game time for the Tigers-Seminoles battle has been set for 8 p.m., with national television coverage by ABC.

Herbstreit confirmed what Lee Fitting, GameDay's senior producer, told Paul Finebaum last week: “You can just about book us for Clemson on the 19th. This game is going to be treated like the Super Bowl.”

Both the Tigers and Seminoles are currently undefeated, with Clemson ranked No. 3 and FSU No. 6. While Clemson faces Boston College at home on Saturday, the Seminoles have an off-week.

You would think, but I'm sure the 4 hours will be devoted to Clowney's status and esecsucpn recruiting and the ugay win over Tennessee.

If GameDay returning to Clemson next week is contingent on us beating Boston College they might as well load the bus and head it towards Clemson, SC because we will not get beat by BC. And if we do, it will be because we aren't any good and if anybody thinks we aren't any good, I have some stuff I would like to just rent to them. BC can get all fired up and think about their running game and how good it is but when the game is over and the scoreboard reads Clemson 56 BC 10 the reality will start setting in and they will start figuring it out. They never had a prayer to even stay close to us. Am I overconfident. I don't think so, but I guess we will see.
