ESPN's "College GameDay" will open the college football season in Death Valley for the Clemson-Georgia game on Aug. 31. The game will later broadcast live at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

"GameDay" last visited Clemson on Oct. 21, 2006. It was the first and only time the Tigers hosted the show.

One new addition to ESPN's broadcast is that "GameDay" will expand to four hours for the opening weekend. The show will begin airing on ESPN at 9 a.m. ET and will run until 1 p.m. ET. The college football pregame show also plans to air for three hours (9 a.m. -- noon ET) each Saturday after Week 1.

This game will display two of the country's top offenses. Clemson finished the 2012 season ranked ninth nationally in total offense (512.7 yards per game), while the Bulldogs finished 22nd (467.7). Record-breaking quarterbacks Tajh Boyd and Aaron Murray return for a year in which both are considered early Heisman Trophy candidates.
