LOOK: ESPN's logo for South Carolina definitely isn't a Gamecock
Something seems off in this photo.
The South Carolina Gamecocks found out their bowl destination Sunday afternoon. It was announced that the Gamecocks will head to the Outback Bowl for a game against the Michigan Wolverines in Tampa, Florida. Fans will likely remember that South Carolina previously beat Michigan in the Outback Bowl in 2013.
It is a decent bowl game following an 8-4 season in Will Muschamp’s second year with the team. The bowl game will give the Gamecocks a shot to reach nine wins, something that hasn’t been accomplished at South Carolina since 2013.
Fans will likely be excited for the matchup and a chance to end the season with a win over a Big 10 program.
ESPN took time to discuss the bowl slate on Sunday and touched on the matchup between the Gamecocks and Wolverines. Unfortunately, the graphic used for South Carolina in the segment just doesn’t look right. Justin King shared a photo of the graphic to Twitter, and it appears the logo for South Carolina State was incorrectly used:
The date and time of the matchup in the photo also appears to be off. The game is slated to kickoff on New Year’s Day at noon EST on ESPN2.
