Clemson - South Carolina Notes & Statistics

South Carolina broke their 4-game losing streak to the Clemson Tigers Saturday afternoon at Williams-Brice Stadium. Here are all the statistics from the game.

With Saturday's 20-15 loss to South Carolina, the Tigers must beat Duke on December 1st to become bowl eligible. A win likely sends Clemson to play in the Tangerine Bowl on December 20th.

South Carolina will likely play in the Citrus Bowl against the #2 team from the Big 10. The Citrus Bowl has the highest payout of any bowl game outside of the BCS.

"I want to congratulate South Carolina, coach Holtz and his staff," Clemson coach Tommy Bowden added. "They really took it to us in the second half. I agree with what I said earlier. You don't appreciate a victory in this rivalry until you lose it."

The victory for South Carolina was the Gamecocks' first in Williams-Brice Stadium since 1987.

The Tigers now stand at 5-5 on the year, losing four of their last 5 football games. Tommy Bowden is now 2-1 lifetime against South Carolina.
