Wyoming Gets Dumped From Clemson's 2021 Football Schedule

Clemson to Face Georgia in Charlotte in 2021 Season Opener

Both games will be played at Bank of America Stadium in Uptown Charlotte. The Clemson Tigers didn't have a game scheduled for that date, but did have four non-conference games so they have canceled their home game against Wyoming that was slated for September 25.

The first installment of Clemson's 2021 football schedule didn't offer much to quash a long-standing notion that its lineup of opponents tends to be too easy.

So it looks like Wyoming drew the proverbial short straw due to the fact that the game was set for the opening week of the season, which in-turn gave Clemson the opportunity to make the game a showcased matchup with another often top-ten ranked powerhouse with Georgia.

Clemson and Georgia now have six future games scheduled. "UGA is a great football program and we know that Charlotte will provide a first-class experience for everyone involved". The Bulldogs also have three neutral site Power 5 games in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Atlanta's Mercedes Benz Stadium: 2020 vs. Virginia; 2022 vs. OR; and 2024 vs. Clemson.

The Tigers and Bulldogs had already agreed to a pair of home-and-home series in 2029 and 2030, as well as in 2035 and 2036.

The Georgia - Clemson series dates back to 1897. The Bulldogs and Clemson did split their most recent series in 2013-2014.

"The eyes of the nation will be on Charlotte as we start the 2021 season", Georgia Greg McGarity said.

In order to schedule the matchup, Georgia has canceled their September 4, 2021 home game against San Jose State.

Clemson is also scheduled to host South Carolina State (Sept. 11) and UConn (Nov. 13) and travel to South Carolina (Nov. 27).
