Kirk Herbstreit, Reece Davis, Desmond Howard and Lee Corso are all back for the iconic pregame show — but more importantly, so are the thousands of rowdy fans we missed during last year’s COVID-19 season.
And with the return of these fans comes the return of a longstanding GameDay tradition: a sea of hilarious homemade signs.
One sign in particular today has caught the attention of college football fans. Taking a jab at the Bulldogs’ long national championship draught, a group of Clemson fans held a topical sign reading, “Social Distancing: 40 years.”

Georgia has claimed six national titles in the program’s history, but its most recent championship came back in 1980.
While the Bulldogs have the Tigers beat in total national titles, Clemson’s recency makes their past success far more relevant for today’s matchup. Having won two championships in the last five years (2016, 2018), Dabo Swinney’s program certainly have the edge over their fellow college football powerhouse in recent seasons.
That being said, tonight’s game should be one of the most competitive contests of the year.
Georgia quarterback J.T. Daniels and Clemson signal caller D.J. Uiagalelei are both surrounded with world-class talent on both sides of the ball. Whoever claims victory tonight sets the tone for their team’s potential CFP title run.
Taking place at a neutral site in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Tigers are favored by 2.5 points. The game will kickoff tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET.
