SEASON SO FAR

South Carolina put an exclamation point on an up-and-down season with an impressive 34-17 victory at home against the favored Clemson Tigers. Winning the Palmetto State championship in Williams-Brice Stadium is more gratifying than anything this side of an SEC or national title for passionate South Carolinians, and some might even prefer it over those.
