The Clemson - South Carolina Rivalry

The Palmetto Bowl is the official name of the annual football game between the Clemson Tigers and the South Carolina Gamecocks. First meeting in 1896, the Clemson-South Carolina rivalry is the second longest continuous rivalry in Division I college football and the longest uninterrupted rivalry series in the south. Although the game is presently scheduled for the final weekend in November and teams alternate hosting the Palmetto Bowl, the game was played on Thursdays in Columbia from 1896 to 1959 (referred to as “Big Thursday”).
