Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Palmetto Bowl

Rival Team: Clemson Tigers

Unlike other college football rivalries the rivalry between Clemson and South Carolina runs much deeper than the gridiron. The two schools were founded 88 years apart as Clemson was established to satisfy the agrarian movement’s request for more agricultural education after South Carolina refused to expand their agriculture program. On the field, the two teams play in the longest uninterrupted series as the two teams first met in 1896 when the Gamecocks beat the Tigers 12-6.

South Carolina vs Georgia

Rival Team: Georgia Bulldogs

The Gamecocks rivalry with the Bulldogs dates back to 1894 and has been dominated by Georgia for most of its history as they hold a 47-18-2 all-time lead. However, since South Carolina joined the SEC in 1990, the rivalry has been much closer as the Bulldogs only hold a 14-9 advantage.
