Now that South Carolina has a win to become bowl eligible, the Gamecock set their sights on what could be one of the most anticipated games all season. Clemson rivalry week is upon us, and we will be keeping you updated throughout the week with your latest coverage. Even after Saturday’s win, the big orange were the first ones to be brought up. Check out what the players had to say.

Kentucky vs. Louisville, Alabama vs. Auburn, Florida vs. Florida State; Those are just some of the heightened rivalries around the country that will take place on Saturday.

But in South Carolina, there are two teams where the competition runs deep.

The Clemson vs. South Carolina rivalry runs through the blood of South Carolinians. Either you dorn the colors of your door in purple and orange, or choose to drape it in garnet and black. It’s the ACC vs. the SEC, and each team and its fans thrives for bragging rights the entire year.

Take a look at what some of the players had to say about the heated match-up in Saturday’s post-game press conference.

This week, the TIgers were named at the No. 23 spot in the AP Top 25 Poll. Clemson stands 8-3 and second in the ACC. It’s 6-28 loss against Georgia Tech two weeks ago put a damper on the program’s spirits. But with the intensity behind this game, you can bet the orange and purple will be ready to roll in Death Valley this Saturday.
