Challenge accepted: South Carolina announces sell out for first Palmetto Bowl since 2019
Shane Beamer and several South Carolina players put out the challenge early in the week to “pack WillyB” and the hashtag bounced around social media to gather momentum.
After an announcement on Wednesday afternoon, the Gamecocks can now consider it a challenge accepted. The school announced that all 77,559 tickets for the Clemson game have been distributed. It’s the second sellout of the season at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, joining the Kentucky game.
A sold out Williams-Brice Stadium is one of the best atmospheres for a night game in the country, and this Clemson game should not disappoint. The game will be televised on the SEC Network with Taylor Zarzour and Matt Stinchcomb in the booth and Alyssa Lang on the sidelines.
The Tigers hold a 71-42-4 advantage in the series that dates back to 1896, including a 52-32-3 edge when playing in Columbia. The teams did not play in the 2020 season, the first year the two schools have not met on the gridiron since 1908.
