Powderkeg: With emotions running high, Swinney sends a message

Tensions are already building for Saturday night’s 7:30 p.m. kickoff in a series that has been dominated by Clemson.

Growing up in the state of Virginia, Clelin Ferrell didn’t quite understand the animosity that exists between Clemson and the University of South Carolina. As a senior in high school, a trip to a Waffle House in Columbia changed his perception, and perhaps his school of choice. Contains Video
