South Carolina, Clemson playing for new Palmetto Bowl trophy
Much is at stake for Clemson and South Carolina when they meet Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.
First and foremost, Clemson is trying to hold on to its No. 1 ranking heading into the ACC Championship game next week.
Now the Gamecocks have something to play for, too.
The two South Carolina state rivals will play for a new trophy awarded to the winner of the annual Palmetto Bowl. The silver trophy is shaped like a Palmetto tree, with each university’s logo in its school colors on the base.
In addition to bragging rights, the Palmetto Bowl trophy is up for grabs.
