Clemson Will Show Its Game Against Georgia In Athens On The Jumbo Screens At Death Valley

Clemson fans unable to get tickets and make the trip to Athens, Ga. for the Tigers' season opening game against Georgia will still be able to watch the contest in a big-time college football stadium. 

The school announced today that the Tigers-Bulldogs matchup will be shown on the big screens at Memorial Stadium. 

“When we heard from fans through social media and email, we began examining the feasibility of opening the stadium, and think this can be a unique experience for our fans wanting to experience a gameday-like viewing from Death Valley,” Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said in a release

Clemson was allotted 7,500 tickets for the Georgia game and they sold out quickly. Admission into Memorial Stadium will be free. 

This is a cool idea from the Clemson athletic department and it's surprising more schools don't do this. Watch parties, as best showcased this summer during the World Cup, always seem to be a major hit among fan bases.
