The Clemson Tigers will make the trip to Columbia to meet the South Carolina Gamecocks this weekend from Williams-Brice Stadium on the SEC Network. Clemson and South Carolina hold one of the longest running non-conference rivalries, as they’ve met in nearly every season since 1896. Clemson holds the Palmetto Bowl series lead, 72-43-4, but South Carolina did steal last year’s meeting by a point. This is our Clemson vs South Carolina Prediction.

Clemson Tigers Preview 

Clemson moved to 7-4 after defeating North Carolina at home, 31-20. The Tigers contained Drake Maye and the Tar Heel offense, and they’ll look to strike revenge on South Carolina this Saturday night. The Clemson offense is scoring 28.8 ppg, while passing for 236.8 ypg, rushing for 176.7 ypg, and converting 41% of their third downs.

Clemson Player Notes

Cade Klubnik leads Clemson behind center with 2,480 passing yards, with 19 touchdowns to seven interceptions thru eleven starts. 

• Junior RB Phil Mafah has hit the 80-yard mark in four straight games, and he leads Clemson in rushing (805).

• Wilmington native Will Shipley surpassed the century mark for the second time in the win over UNC, and he’s up to 718 yards rushing on 141 carries. 

• Freshman wideout Tyler Brown leads the Tigers in receptions (46) for 479 receiving yards. 

• The Clemson defense is allowing 21.0 points per game.

South Carolina Gamecocks Preview

South Carolina moved to 5-6 after defeating Kentucky at home by three, 17-14. The Gamecocks held off the Wildcats in the fourth quarter, and they’ll look to earn a bowl bid with a victory here. The SC offense is scoring 27.7 ppg, while passing for 236.8 ypg, rushing for 87.6 ypg, and converting 35.1% of their third downs.

SC Player Notes 

Spencer Rattler leads South Carolina behind center with 3,074 passing yards, and 19 touchdowns to seven interceptions thru eleven starts. 

• Senior back Mario Anderson went for 102 yards in the win over Vandy, and he leads the team in rushing (672).

• Veteran wideout Xavier Leggette continues to dominate on the outside, and after scoring twice versus UK, he leads SC in receptions (65) and receiving yards (1,187).

• The SC defense has allowed 27.2 points per game.


Clemson vs South Carolina Trends

CLEM is 5-6 against the spread, with a 5-6 O/U record. 

SC is 6-4 ATS, with a 5-5 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

South Carolina’s season has been unfortunate and can be attributed to the depth of the SEC, but if there’s one game you can count on this program to get up for, it’s this one. With this contest taking place at night, the stage is set for SC to stop Clemson’s late-season momentum, and become bowl eligible in the process. The Tigers have a ton of momentum, but this could potentially be Spencer Rattler’s final college game if SC’s unable to earn a bowl bid here, and I do believe the Gamecocks will bring the fight to the Tigers. Let’s spot South Carolina the points for this night bout in Columbia, and back the Over for insurance, as revenge will surely be on Clemson’s mind.
