The South Carolina football home opener will be played under the lights at Williams-Brice Stadium, it was announced today. The Gamecocks will host the Kentucky Wildcats in an SEC Eastern Division showdown at 7:30 pm on Saturday, September 16. The contest will be televised on SEC Network.

South Carolina leads the all-time series by a 17-10-1 count over Kentucky including an 8-4-1 mark in Columbia, but the Wildcats have won each of the last three meetings between the two schools, including a 17-10 decision in Lexington last season.

The Gamecocks will open the 2017 season in Charlotte on Saturday, September 2, against the NC State Wolfpack. Game time is set for 3 pm at Bank of America Stadium and the contest will be televised nationally on ESPN. The SEC opener will be Saturday, September 9, when Carolina travels to Columbia, Mo. to face the Missouri Tigers. That contest will be carried nationally on ESPN2, beginning at 7 pm ET.
