Clemson Tigers fans will see former offensive guard, team captain and first-team All-ACC selection Eric Mac Lain on ACC Network (ACCN) Fridays and Saturdays in the fall. He will contribute to studio coverage with analysis of the conference’s season-long football action. ACCN is the new, 24/7 national platform that will launch on August 22, 2019. One week later, Clemson will kick off ACCN’s football slate on August 29 when it hosts Georgia Tech in the season-opening game for both teams.
Mac Lain said, “It was a privilege to play at Clemson and compete in the ACC, and I’m blessed to now have this opportunity to cover football as part of ACCN. I look forward to being a part of the ACCN family while helping to bring an unprecedented amount of content and events to our fans.”
