Clemson fans gear up for second ESPN College Gameday appearance of season

CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The ESPN College Gameday crew worked tirelessly Friday to get Bowman Field at Clemson ready for the big game Saturday.

The Tigers faceoff against the Florida State Seminoles at 8 p.m., and Clemson fans are slated to wait all day, claiming their spot for a chance to be seen on ESPN.

It is the first time ever the broadcast has returned to a location within the first eight weeks of a season, and the first since 2007 since the broadcast has returned to a location within the same season.

The faces of "Gameday," Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Fowler, talked to FOX Carolina Friday morning with their thoughts on the outcome of Saturday's game. 

"I think the best offense they've faced since that Georgia game is ranked like 55th in the country," Herbstreit said of Clemson's defense. "So, here comes a Top 10 offense - again, we'll find out how much they've matured."

"To me this game's going to come down to which defense can get a few stops and a few service breaks," Fowler said. "Because it'd be hard to look at this game and not imagine a lot of points being scored. "

Crews also spent the day building the Nissan Heisman House, a shrine to the legends of college football. It gives viewers a chance to imagine what it would be like if all Heisman winners lived in a house together.

Kickoff is at 8 p.m. Saturday at Clemson.
