Clemson v. Carolina Week: Get. It. On.

Well...after throttling Troy this past Saturday at the Billy-Brice, the Gamecocks have a brief layover in Clemson before fulfilling their destiny in Atlanta on December 4th at the SEC Championship game.

This Saturday night at 7pm on ESPN 2, the Gamecocks will look to beat Clemson for the first time in a long time in back-to-back years. Last year, the Gamecocks shocked the #15 Tigers 34-17, holding once-in-a-lifetime Clemson RB C.J. Spiller to just 18 yards. The Tigers were wrapping up a successful season and headed to the ACC Championship game when Carolina poked a pin in their balloon. Can Clemson return the favor, salvaging what has arguably been a disappointing season for Tiger Nation?

We'll see this Saturday. As with most rivalry games, you can throw out the records when these two schools meet. But for our money, we ain't going against the L-train and the Gas Attendant.

A little music to get our Carolina fans ready for Saturday night:
