When the game kicks off between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Clemson Tigers, the area will be entering the tail-end of a Wind Advisory according to the U.S. national Weather Service.
WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM TO 8 PM EDT SATURDAY...
* WHAT... South winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph expected. A few isolated gusts up to 60 mph may be possible Saturday afternoon.

Of course, this means that everyone’s tailgates will be affected throughout campus — watch for flying tents, flags, hats, and wigs.
But we already told you most of that earlier this week. The forecast really hasn’t changed other than it’s going to feel a little colder.
I still expect a very low-scoring game that will be frustrating to watch by fans of both schools. I predicted a 16-12 Irish win, but who the heck knows?
