It is hard to believe that 2 years ago this was a game that had national relevance. Since then things have gone pear shaped for the Gamecocks and we are now stuck with a noon kickoff where the top ranked team in the country is playing a team that just lost to The Citadel.
Despite that, this is absolutely a game Clemson can lose. Rivalry games are odd ducks. You can throw out the records, the stats, even the talent levels. Rivalry games are about heart and bragging rights, come out flat and you will lose, even if you are the #1 team in the country. If Clemson isn't ready they will easily lose this.
As for the football it self, yes, Clemson should win. They have more talent at all positions and have performed infinitely better than South Carolina this year. The Tigers just have to be Clemson. Show up ready, execute, and play with heart. Do those three things and we will see the first undefeated regular season for Clemson since 1981.
