The Clemson Tigers and South Carolina Gamecocks renew their rivalry after a one-year hiatus in the final week of the regular season. The Tigers are in an unusual position this year after being College Football Playoff regulars, while the Gamecocks might have some upside with head coach Shane Beamer reaching bowl eligibility in his first season. Clemson has won the last six meetings in this rivalry.

It has been a rough season for the Tigers, largely due to offensive failures. South Carolina has some impressive wins in Beamer’s first season at the helm. It’s a road game for Clemson but the Tigers have the defense to take this game over. Expect the favorites to cover the spread here, something they’ve rarely done this season.
