South Carolina Upsets Clemson In Rivalry Game

Written by Tony Ghaul

South Carolina beat Clemson 31-30 on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. The Tigers had won seven straight in the rivalry, but the Gamecocks snapped that streak. They also snapped Clemson’s home-winning streak of 40 straight wins in Death Valley, which dated to 2016. Clemson fell to 10-2 on the season, while South Carolina improved to 8-4.

South Carolina QB Spencer Rattler threw for 360 yards and two touchdowns, Mitch Jeter hit the go-ahead field goal with 11 minutes left.

The Gamecocks were coming off a huge win last week. They dismantled then fifth-ranked Tennessee 63-38. South Carolina and Rattler, who threw for 438 yards and six touchdowns against Tennessee, ended any chance Clemson had of reaching the CFP.
