Top 10 rankings, stars galore in Palmetto Bowl

Posted: Updated:
AP -

The Palmetto State has its own high-profile, highly ranked rivalry showdown in the Southeast this weekend.

Sixth-ranked Clemson will take on No. 10 South Carolina with title implications, spice and state rivalry drama.

The Tigers (10-1) and Gamecocks (9-2) hope to show they each belong in a BCS game.

It's the final college meeting between Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd and Gamecocks defender Jadeveon Clowney.

But Boyd says the game is bigger than one player, that it's not "me versus him or him versus anybody else."

 

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says both teams bring great recognition to the state. The coach says it's great the schools began the year as top-10 teams and remain there now.
