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!
History of the GAMECOCKS AND VOLS
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).
