Clemson Tigers-South Carolina Gamecocks: This one is ‘personal’

Suddenly, there’s a little more juice for the annual South Carolina rivalry matchup.

After struggling to move the ball in a 38-6 loss in Florida, the Gamecocks’ offense exploded in a 63-38 win over fifth-ranked Tennessee for 606 yards of offense.

South Carolina entered the competition as a huge underdog, and Clemson’s co-defensive coordinator Mickey Conn admitted it was a surprise result.

“Of course, as probably everyone,” said Conn. “They were very creative with (Jaheim) Bell moving it in different places and where they put it. And they distributed the ball, put the ball in different people’s hands. Did a great job with formations, shifts and movement. Just a lot of creativity on offense, I thought.”
