Gamecock Club members received a helpful email recently announcing some changes to timing for parking for this Saturday's football game vs. Georgia to accommodate hosting ESPN's College GameDay. Check out the information below. Please note one change from the original email in bold below about shuttle pick-up/drop-off location:
"We are excited to announce that ESPN's College GameDay will be broadcasting live from the Horseshoe this Saturday, October 6, before the Gamecocks take on the Georgia Bulldogs!
After having such a great experience on the Horseshoe
during their last visit, the ESPN crew chose to return to this location to showcase our beautiful
"The Horseshoe is one of the best sites we've ever had for College GameDay," said Lee Fitting, College GameDay Senior Coordinating Producer. "The picturesque collegiate backdrop creates the perfect setting for the show."
The three-hour show will be aired nationally beginning at 9 a.m.
Fairgrounds and Farmers Market parking lots will open at 8 a.m. to accommodate fans wishing to
attend. Free shuttles will run from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with drop-off and pick-up locations at
Greene Street in front of the Russell House and at the northwest corner of Williams-Brice Stadium off George Rogers Blvd.
Standard game shuttle routes from the Colonial Life Arena will resume at 4 p.m. and continue 90 minutes following the game for $3 roundtrip. The standard shuttle is no charge to students with a valid student ID card (CarolinaCard). The standard game shuttle will continue to pick up and drop off at Colonial Life Arena and the main entrance of the Fairgrounds on Rosewood.
All Gamecock Club season parking passes will
be honored on Saturday. The back of the Fairgrounds will not be available due to preparations for
the State Fair. Approximately 400 game day parking spaces will be sold between the Fairgrounds (go to Gate 6) and
Farmers Market (in the back grass area; enter off Stan Spears Rd.) on a first-come-first-served basis.
