Carolina-Clemson Kickoff, Coverage Announced

ESPN to provide national coverage of “Palmetto Bowl …”

The state of South Carolina’s signature sports rivalry will be televised nationally on ESPN later this month.

The “Palmetto Bowl” – the annual gridiron meeting between the University of South Carolina and Clemson University football teams – will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. EST from Williams-Brice Stadium in downtown Columbia, S.C. on November 25.

Clemson (9-1, 7-1 ACC) and South Carolina (7-3, 5-3 SEC) have played 114 times (107 times consecutively), with the Tigers enjoying a 68-42-4 all-time series advantage.  Clemson has won the last three games after South Carolina won five straight from 2009-2013.

Last year’s game was a drubbing – with No. 4 Clemson clobbering Carolina 56-7 in Death Valley.

Earlier this year, South Carolina sophomore quarterback Jake Bentley generated controversy when he told a reporter “everyone knew that they weren’t that much better than us or better than us at all.”

Oy …

Expect that comment to be on the Tigers’ lockers prior to kickoff on November 25.

Both Carolina and Clemson have completed their conference schedules and will face in-state rivals Wofford and The Citadel next week, respectively.
