South Carolina will play No. 7 LSU Saturday in Baton Rouge, La.’s Tiger Stadium, but it will actually be a home game for the Gamecocks.
By now, you know the game was moved to Tiger Stadium due to flooding in the Columbia, S.C. area.
That flooding served as an inspiration for the South Carolina athletic department to create a video to raise spirits in the community.
Here’s the message in the video:
“This week, our state was hit with unprecedented devastation. In the midst of the flood, we’ve seen what South Carolina is really about and we’ve learned what a true hero looks like. Now it’s time for us to respond. To give. To help. We will persevere. We will move forward. Together. Because here it’s great to be a South Carolinian.”
Also included in the video were images of the damage caused by the flood as well as the efforts of local officials, firemen and volunteers that lent a hand to help lift the community.
It’s a nice rallying cry for the Gamecocks as they face an uphill battle against unbeaten LSU on the road Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
