Game time, TV channel set for South Carolina-Tennessee clash

South Carolina football will face Tennessee at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, in a game that will be televised by SEC Network.

Those details were announced Monday by USC. The game will be played at Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium.

The Gamecocks (3-3, 2-2 SEC) first face Florida this Saturday at noon (ESPN) at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia. USC just defeated then-No. 3 Georgia 20-17 in Athens.

Tennessee (2-4, 1-2 SEC) is coming off a 20-10 win over Mississippi State. The Volunteers are at Alabama this weekend.

The Gamecocks are 3-0 against the Vols under Will Muschamp, a streak that began with an upset of a No. 18 Butch Jones team. That had snapped a three-game skid for South Carolina in the series.

USC has only won three times at Tennessee, in 2017, 2011 and 2005. The Gamecocks have never topped 24 points in Knoxville and never scored more than 16 in a victory.
