Clemson: Saturday’s football game on schedule to be played

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson athletic department officials say everything is a still on schedule for this weekend’s football game between No. 6 Notre Dame and the 12th-ranked Tigers, although they are keeping a close watch on Hurricane Joaquin out in the Atlantic Ocean.

Clemson said in a statement Thursday that university officials have been in contact with the National Weather Service and the Atlantic Coast Conference. At the moment, everything is scheduled as planned.

Officials said in the statement, “We intend to continue on that path unless authorities advise us otherwise.” Should that occur, the athletic department will immediately inform the public.

Forecasts call for up to an inch of rain on Saturday night.
