Our weekly "what channel is the game on?" post returns for 2012 with your #9 Gamecocks on the road at Vanderbilt for the first game of the season! Every week we'll bring you this post to try to help out those in Gamecock Country who can't make it to the game in person.

ESPN's Rece Davis, Jesse Palmer, David Pollack, and Samantha Steele will call the action for the broadcast.
