Competing in it's first ever SEC equestrian meet on Thursday, No. 2 South Carolina edged out third-ranked Auburn 10-9.The Gamecocks are now 2-0 overall with a 1-0 record in SEC play, while the Tigers fall to 1-1 and 0-1 in the conference.
A football win over Georgia would give the Gamecocks three straight wins over the Dawgs for the first time in history. It would also extend Carolina's winning streak over SEC Eastern Division opponents to 12 straight games.
FAN PHOTO OF THE DAY
Today's photo was sent in by Kenneth Hinson. This photo of his son, Brian, and daughter, Stacey, was taken at "Cockfest" in Columbia back in 1983!
"Stacey loved Cocky, but Brian was not too sure about this big bird at the time. Both are huge Gamecock fans today and live in "enemy territories" of Birmingham, AL, and Buford, GA, respectively. Stacey will be yelling for all of us at the UGA game this Saturday, along with her husband and cousins! Go Gamecocks!"
