Gamecocks to face Akron in 2024

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) — The Gamecocks announced one opponent on its 2024 schedule Wednesday.

Akron will visit South Carolina on Sept. 21, 2024, for a game at Williams-Brice Stadium.

“This past year we had the opportunity to play in Columbia and experience one of the classic venues in the SEC,” said UA Director of Athletics Larry Williams.  “Athletic Director Ray Tanner and his entire staff really demonstrated that Southern hospitality. So impressed were we that we seized the chance to provide that same experience to a new cohort of Zip student-athletes, some of whom will likely be from a reasonable proximity to Columbia.”

Akron and South Carolina have only met once on the gridiron.  On December 1, 2018, the Gamecocks captured a 28-3 victory in the regular-season finale.  The game replaced UA’s Sept. 1 contest at Nebraska, which was canceled due to lightning, and USC’s Sept. 15 contest against Marshall, which was canceled due to Hurricane Florence.
