USC Season Opener Now One Week Away
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) — After basking in the afterglow of the school’s first ever 11-win season all offseason, USC football fans have one more week to savor history and look forward another top 10 finish. One week from today, the #9 Gamecocks kick off the 2012 college football season on ESPN at Vanderbilt. Last year, the Carolina defense dominated the Commodores, holding Vandy to just 77 total yards en route to a 21-3 win in Columbia. This year, the second under Head Coach James Franklin, Vanderbilt will be debuting a renovated Vanderbilt Stadium to the national television audience, part of a $50 million project to enhance the school’s athletics facilities. The Gamecocks practice today at 4:15 p.m. All workouts are closed.
