South Carolina already plays Clemson every year but that hasn’t stopped the Gamecocks from beefing up the program’s non-conference schedule on the gridiron and that trend continues as South Carolina has just announced a new home-and-home series against an ACC opponent.

South Carolina has just announced a new home-and-home series with Virginia Tech. The first game in the series will be played in Columbia on Sept. 16, 2034 with the return game in Blacksburg played on Sept. 15, 2035.

The Gamecocks have played the Hokies 20 times and hold an 11-7-2 lead in the series.

South Carolina Athletics Director Ray Tanner issued the following statement along with the news:

“By adding Virginia Tech to our future football schedules, it gives us a quality opponent with a regional matchup. Coach Muschamp and I are looking to fill our non-conference schedule with teams that would be appealing for our fans and supplement our already-tough Southeastern Conference slate with opponents that our squad will be excited to play. I hope we can make more of these announcements in the near future.”
