Trivia

Scenes were filmed on Clemson University's campus including some inside of Clemson's Death Valley. Football scenes such as the running down the hill were filmed during halftime of Clemson's 2019 home game against the Charlotte 49ers on September 21. See more »

Goofs

Although the producers went to considerable lengths to recreate the 2006 look of the Clemson team, down to shoe styles, and to the coach's polo shirt designs, two things could not be duplicated. The Clemson Tiger Band forms a tunnel formation on the field for the team to run throw at the beginning of the game, but the band's uniforms have changed since that era and the performers were not part of the filming at halftime. The tradition of releasing orange balloons as the team runs down the hill was discontinued in 2018 for environmental reasons and was also not included, even though it would have been seen in 2006.
