The Clemson vs South Carolina rivalry was ranked as the #9 college football rivalry in the nation according to NFL.com.
The Tigers ended the Gamecocks's five-game winning streak in the Palmetto Bowl with an impressive 35-17 win in Death Valley last season.
"The Palmetto Bowl has more layers than an onion when it comes to rivalries," NFL.com said. "There is, of course, the historical aspect that fans the flames, dating back in many respects to tensions rising from the Civil War. Add in how close the campuses are to each other along with the SEC vs. ACC aspect, and this is one nasty back-and-forth showdown. Things have certainly escalated recently due to the potshots that Dabo Swinney and Steve Spurrier have taken at the opposing schools the past few years."
The Iron Bowl featuring Alabama and Auburn was ranked as the biggest rivalry in college football.
