Palmetto State rivals Clemson and South Carolina had played each year since 1909 until an SEC rule last season brought an interruption last year.

The gridiron rivalry is back on this season and both teams take some confidence into the 7:30 p.m. SEC Network broadcast start Saturday in Columbia.

In the early odds, Clemson (8-3) opened as a 14-point favorite on Sunday.

The Gamecocks (6-5), under first-year coach Shane Beamer, have gone 5-1 at home this season to reach bowl eligibility, including wins as an underdog to Florida (+20.5; 40-17) and Auburn (+7; 21-17).

Since dropping to 4-3, Clemson has won four in a row to keep its Atlantic Division hopes alive and also stay in position to extend the program’s run of consecutive 10-win or more seasons (2011-20).

After not covering the spread in each of the first seven games, the Tigers have topped the odds in three of the last four contests, including winning by 21 after being a 3.5-point favorite on No. 10 Wake Forest this past Saturday.
