One of the most storied and historic rivalries in all of college football, the annual game between the state’s largest public institutions has never had an official name. The athletic departments of both schools announced this week the official adoption of The Palmetto Bowl™ as the name of the game moving forward, and a trophy and logo will be developed and unveiled prior to the 2015 game.
“This is one of the premier games every year in college football, and it’s a great

“From ‘Big Thursday’ to ‘The Palmetto Bowl,’ there is so much history and tradition
to showcase about this rivalry,” said South Carolina Director of Athletics Ray
Tanner. “The Palmetto Bowl gives this rivalry an identity that highlights the State
of South Carolina and the accomplishments of these outstanding institutions.”
The Tigers and Gamecocks kick off at 12 noon Saturday in a contest set for broadcast on ESPN.
Rivalry now called "The Palmetto Bowl"
