Open Container Law waived if Tigers make Championship Game

If the Clemson Tigers make it to the National Championship Football Game, fans can watch them play from College Avenue. The Clemson City Council recently voted to temporarily suspend open container laws and shut down a portion of College Avenue if the Tigers make to the Jan. 8, game in Atlanta, tells Clemson Mayor JC Cook. “The city made similar closures this past year, when Clemson clinched the title. Officials required wrist bands for people drinking on the street during the game. The open container waivers will apply to drinks bought at establishments, not drinks that are brought in, those are still outlawed. The closures and suspension would begin at 6pm.” Clemson first faces Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, in New Orleans.
