There are two interesting games Thursday and Friday – two games that could develop into great SEC rivalries on the final weekend of the SEC football season – but Saturday is the day in which the true rivalry games will be played, including a few in-state SEC-ACC showdowns.

  • South Carolina has owned Clemson since Steve Spurrier came to town and the Gamecocks have won five in a row.

    “Obviously, this is our big game of the year now,” Spurrier said. “We’re not in contention for any divisional or SEC stuff, so this is the state championship game. We’ve got to get ready to go up there and play our best game of the year.”

    Carolina has struggled this season, starting with a blowout loss in the season opener, but has now won two in a row to reach bowl eligibility. The offense hasn’t been an issue at all, but the defense is one of the worst in the nation. Luckily for Spurrier, the defense will be facing shaky Clemson quarterback Cole Stoudt instead of playmaking freshman Deshaun Watson, who is out with an injury.

    Clemson comes in 8-3 this season with quality losses to Top 25 opponents Georgia, Florida State and Georgia Tech and has won seven of their last eight games. However, they have been far from impressive during that stretch, especially Stoudt.

    The Gamecocks had the talent to begin the season as a top ten team, but early struggles doomed their high expectations. They’ve improved recently, and are still the more talented team. Expect the streak to continue.

    South Carolina 31, Clemson 30
