Clemson, FSU and ESPN announced yesterday that Bowden Bowl IX will be televised on ESPN at 8:00 pm on Labor Day night.
It will be Clemson's first Monday night game since the 1982 season opener vs. Georgia on ABC when the defending national champs from '80 and '81 squared off under the new Sanford Stadium lights. Of course, the Dawgs won that one.
The Clemson announcement is only relevant to Georgia fans in that it further frees up TV inventory on Saturday, Sept. 1st, and it makes room for a strong national time slot for Georgia vs. Oklahoma State.
As I said a few weeks ago, the so far announced national college football schedule is shaping up for an ESPN night game when the Pokes come to Athens. I'm guessing a kickoff between 5:00 and 8:00 pm.
