The ‘Palmeto Bowl” or simply put as the ”’The Battle of the Palmetto State” (Hardee’s Trophy) is one underrated rivalry in college football that should earn a few more set of eyes these days.
Both teams are legit this season, but more importantly the Gamecocks are attempting for their fourth straight victory (would be most consecutive since 1951-1954)
Jadeveon Clowney’s services were not needed against FCS opponent Wofford, but the Gamecocks will be running into a different animal with Clemson.
The Tigers are coming off an emphatic 62-48 victory over NC State, which is where Tajh Boyd threw an ACC-record 8 total TD.
Boyd has a ton of playmakers that would be All-American superstars on SEC squads and this is a major statement type of game to earn back some of that disrespect from the BCS computers.
The pollsters have not exactly shown a ton of love for Clems...
