CLEMSON – Clemson Athletics and IPTAY officials are hopeful that a favorable weather forecast this week will allow the university to reopen grass parking lots for football games.

Clemson hosts Boston College Saturday at 7 p.m. in the school’s annual homecoming game.

Athletics Department and IPTAY officials met Monday morning to discuss parking options. Due to heavy rain during each of the last two games against Notre Dame and Georgia Tech, respectively, several grass parking lots were damaged.

Clemson is working with its landscaping team, along with university resources and outside contractors, to make every effort to see that the grass lots are open this weekend.

“The forecast calls for dry conditions throughout the week, which will hopefully assist us in making these lots usable,” Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich said. “We want to do everything we can to put as many cars as possible into Lots 1, 2, 13 and 14, which are in the worst shape.”

The school will continue to evaluate the lots and will provide more details and any adjustments later in the week via direct communication to patrons assigned to grass parking areas.
