Georgia Southern vs Clemson Live : The Clemson and Georgia Southern game will proceed with a noon kickoff on Saturday (televised on ESPNU).
School officials set a noon deadline Friday for a final decision to weigh the latest forecasts from the effects of Hurricane Florence and give Georgia Southern the proper amount of time to travel up from Statesboro, Georgia.

Forecasts call for sustained winds of 15 MPH and up increasing over the afternoon and chances of rain as early as around mid-afternoon. The bulk of the rain and heavier wind is expected more toward Sunday.
Hurricane Florence has already caused several college football games in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia to be canceled.

But Clemson and Georgia Southern are still expected to play Saturday. Clemson released a statement Friday morning stating that, “The kickoff time for Saturday’s game remains scheduled for 12 p.m. Clemson Athletics and the University administration continue to monitor the forecast related to Hurricane Florence very carefully. The safety of fans and the student-athletes from both universities are our top priority.”
South Carolina and Marshall announced Wednesday that their game will not be played this weekend, while ACC teams North Carolina, N.C. State and Virginia Tech also had their games canceled.
The Clemson and Georgia Southern game had its start time moved up from 3:30 p.m. to noon, and the Tigers are the only FBS school in South Carolina, North Carolina or Virginia still scheduled to play Saturday.
Clemson Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich was on the Sirius XM ACC Radio show hosted by Mark Packer and Wes Durham Thursday morning and explained why the Tigers are still scheduled to play, despite other schools deciding to cancel their games.
“Here in the Upstate of South Carolina we’ve been monitoring what effects it may have here in Clemson,” Radakovich said. “As you know we moved the game time from 3:30 to noon to make sure that everybody would have ample time to get back to wherever their homestead is after the game… At this current time whatever type of effects we have from the storm look to be late Saturday, early Sunday morning. That is the information that we have received.”
Radakovich and Georgia Southern AD Tom Kleinlein have been in constant communication throughout the week. Both schools are working to gather as much information as possible about the hurricane before Saturday’s game.
As you’d expect, the Tigers are heavy favorites in this matchup and, if you were to put any capital down on their moneyline, you’re not going to be making much of a profit. However, with how Clemson can explode on offense, the Over/Under line does seem a little low.
