Are You Ready For Some USC Football

Are you ready for some USC football? Ready or not, the University of South Carolina Gamecocks take to the field tonight! USC will play against the University of North Carolina Tarheels in the 2015 Belk College Kickoff Game. Playing in Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium, the game starts at 6:00 PM and will be aired on ESPN with coverage also on 107.5 FM. This will be the 57th meeting between the two teams since 1903. Although UNC leads the all time series with 34-18-4, USC has won 5 of the last 6 meetings. Coach Steve Spurrier, the winningest coach in USC history, begins his 11th season with the Gamecocks. He is 5-0 for career against UNC, and is 2-0 against UNC while at USC. 


The Gamecocks have 13 returning starters from 2014, including tailbacks Brandon Wilds, 5th year senior, and David Williams, sophomore; both of whom are expected to get the bulk of carries this year. Brandon Wilds is 28th on Carolina's all-time list for career rushing yards with 1277 yards. Connor Mitch, a redshirt sophomore, will get his first career start as quarterback tonight. And the player to watch this year is triple-threat Pharoh Cooper, a junior. Cooper is not only a great catcher, but can also run and throw. You may even see him in the quarterback position from time to time this year. The USC Gamecocks will pay tribute this year to the "Emmanuel 9" with helmet stickers in honor of the lives lost in the Charleston church shooting earlier this summer. 


The match-up tonight between The Gamecocks and The Tarheels should make for an exciting game as different polls predict each team as tonight's winner.  Be sure to watch the "Battle of the Carolinas" to see who comes out on top and gets bragging rights to be called the "Real Carolina"!  My bet is on The Gamecocks!
