Geographic rivals South Carolina and Clemson will butt heads for the 101st time this weekend when they meet at Memorial Stadium in Clemson. The latest College Football Odds have the visiting Gamecocks, who have won the last three games in the series, listed as a +4 against the spread road underdog. Saturday’s inter-conference clash between the Gamecocks and Tigers, which has a game total of 61.5 points, is scheduled to get underway at 7:00pm ET on ESPN.
South Carolina Gamecocks vs Clemson Tigers (-4, Over/Under 61.5 ): With all the BCS drama going on at the top of the standings Clemson has been largely overlooked, but the Tigers are having an exceptional season. Clemson improved to 10-1 last weekend with a 62-48 win over North Carolina State and its lone loss came at Florida State on September 22nd. Granted, the Tigers have feasted mostly on a host of watered down ACC opponents, but they have taken care of business nonetheless, averaging over 44 points per game in the process. South Carolina will serve as the team’s biggest challenge since facing the Seminoles, though, and it has been a while since Clemson faced an opponent that hits back. The 9-2 Gamecocks are feeling good as well, having moved past a two game hiccup (suffered back to back losses to LSU and Florida) with consecutive wins over Tennessee, Arkansas, and Wofford (average margin of victory of 12.7 points per game). South Carolina, which defeated Clemson 34-13 last year after limiting the Tigers to 12 first downs and 153 total yards, has also covered five of the last six in this series, including its last two as an underdog (2007 and 2009).
