Georgia Bulldogs vs. Clemson Tigers Preview
Clemson sophomore D.J. Uiagalelei finally has the national spotlight to himself. The Georgia Bulldogs would love nothing more than to steal it from him. Uiagalelei takes over at quarterback for Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 pick in this past April’s NFL draft.
He's hoping to continue Clemson’s impressive run of success under coach Dabo Swinney when the No. 3 Tigers meet the fifth-ranked Bulldogs on Saturday night in the Duke’s Mayo Classic. It will be a neutral site-game in Charlotte, North Carolina. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Uiagalelei has shown he has the skills to fill Lawrence’s shoes, completing 66.6% of his passes for 914 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in two fill-in starts for Lawrence last season.
Economic Impact on Charlotte
City officials say the weekend’s events will bring a much-needed boost to Charlotte’s hospitality industry.
Organizers with the Charlotte Sports Foundation estimate more than 100,000 will participate in the weekend’s events. Saturday’s game they say, is sold-out, with some tickets still available on secondary markets.
“We know the economic impact will be huge. There will be studies following the two events and we think the numbers are going to be fabulous,” Danny Morrison, Executive Director, of Charlotte Sports Foundation, said.
