The production team planned their shooting schedule around an actual game between Clemson and UNC Charlotte, but it turned out the game was to be televised live, giving the crew less time than originally expected—7 min. and 20 sec.—to shoot 4 scenes during halftime, all in front of 85,000 mostly Clemson fans. Filmed in wide-screen format in Georgia and at Clemson University in South Carolina.
