The 2015 SEC football season kicks off tonight when South Carolina plays North Carolina in Charlotte. It’s a border war that USC fans are ecstatic about.

The Gamecocks are used to kicking off the season on Thursday nights. Tonight’s game should be interesting on many levels, mainly to see the Gamecocks’ quarterback Connor Mitch, as well as the new-look Jon Hoke defense.

Here’s what South Carolina fans are saying about tonight’s game on social media:

Throwing it back to the best season of the year. Go Cocks!! 🏈🐓#beatUNC #tbt @thebruceislooose
