COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina’s game against Georgia still will be played in Williams-Brice Stadium, but it won’t be played Saturday night.
The Gamecocks and Bulldogs will play on Sunday, coach Will Muschamp said on his Thursday radio show. The game time has not been set yet with hopes it will be determined later Thursday night.
“We are working with the University of Georgia and the Southeastern Conference, the SEC Network for a kick time,” Muschamp said. “It will be definitely Sunday, sometime in the afternoon. They are not sure exactly what the kick time will be.”
Muschamp praised the USC administration for its work in the process.
“I want compliment president (Harris) Pastides, coach (Ray) Tanner and his entire staff,” Muschamp said. “They have been together all week figuring out, No. 1 campus wise what do we need to do in helping out the College of Charleston and some of the people on the coast coming to Columbia trying to help them out.
“They have worked extremely hard on this situation to make it a workable situation for all the parties involved.”
The game originally was scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Saturday night, but was moved because of Hurricane Matthew. The Gamecocks were determined to keep the game in Columbia, stating Wednesday night that “the USC vs. UGA game will be played in Columbia.”
The Gamecocks have won three straight meetings with Georgia at Williams-Brice Stadium.
