VIDEO OF THE DAY
The football team was recognized during halftime of yesterday's men's basketball game vs. Clemson for their win over the Tigers last week. Check out video of the recognition and Coach Spurrier's comments:
Carolina is heading to the Outback Bowl! The Gamecocks are bowl eligible for the eighth time in as many seasons under Steve Spurrier. He has taken Carolina to six bowl games. No other coach in Carolina history has taken the Gamecocks to more than three bowl games (Jim Carlen and Joe Morrison).
The Gamecocks have won 30 games over the last three seasons with a school record 21 wins in the last two years. Carolina has a 2-1 record in the Outback Bowl with back to back wins over Ohio State after the 2000 and 2001 seasons.
