Tennessee-South Carolina Series Turning Into a Rivlary
Tennessee and South Carolina may not seem like a rivalry game, but these SEC Eastern division opponents sure do play a lot of nail-biters.
The largest margin of victory in the last five meetings has been three points, including last year’s game where the Gamecocks won 24-21.
Said Vols defensive lineman Kendal Vickers:”I definitely think this is a rivalry game. Like I said, every game that I have played in since I’ve been here has been close. Came down to the last play. Last drive. Last Series. Yeah it’s something you definitely have to go through to understand how big of a game this is.”
Said head coach Butch Jones:”Each year is different. Each story line is different. This is a different team. But i think our older players obviously remember it. I think it’s a respect they have for them because they are a very good football team.”
