Halloween Bowl Football Game

Update: Gamecocks Dominate Volunteers, 27-6
South Carolina now stands at 6-3; 3-3 in SEC action.

Today, Mom's chickens (South Carolina Gamecocks) play another woofie (Tennessee Volunteers and their mascot is a dog named Smokey) in football. Fans in South Carolina have started calling this football game the "Halloween Bowl" because it is always played on Halloween weekend and the Gamecocks have worn black (their team colors are garnet and black) and the Volunteers have worn orange (their team colors are orange and white). The Gamecocks have only beaten Tennessee 3 times, so this is a pretty challenging game. I've got my paws on the chickens beating those orange volunteers!


This is the 27th meeting between South Carolina and Tennessee in a series that dates back to 1903. The Volunteers lead the all-time series, 21-3-2, including an 8-2-2 advantage in Columbia. The teams have met every year since 1992 (a 24-23 South Carolina victory), with Tennessee winning 14 of the 15 meetings since that game, including a 27-24 overtime thriller in Knoxville last October and a 31-24 win in Columbia in 2006. The Gamecocks snapped a 12-game losing streak to the Vols and won for the first time ever in Knoxville when they came away with a 16-15 win in 2005. USC's other win over Tennessee came in the first meeting ever in 1903 (24-0).

Pee Ess - Mom's roof is a lot better! The doctor is sending her for some additional tests to see why she keeps getting so sick and has so many allergic reactions lately. I will keep you up-to-date! Thanks again for all of your purrs and well wishes!

That is very VERY good that the doctor is looking into your Momma rather than just fixing everything she gets :))

That is a very neato little tidbit and it is very cute how it works out that way (the Halloween and the colours etc).
Miss Praline I think they should make you their new mascot, you is just so very regal:)
