The University of South Carolina matches up against Clemson University for the 120th annual Palmetto Bowl on Nov. 25, 2023, at Williams-Brice Stadium. The Tigers took the lead and never looked back, defeating the Gamecocks 16-7.
Tiger Burn marks the start of rivalry week between the University of South Carolina and Clemson University with the burning of a giant wooden tiger. This year's tiger was constructed by students from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. The tradition at South Carolina stems from the 1902 upset victory over Clemson where a drawing featuring a gamecock over a beaten tiger frustrated Clemson students, leading to an agreement from both universities to burn the poster. The 2023 Palmetto Bowl will take place on Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in Williams-Brice Stadium.
Finnish DJ Darude performed a mix of music from his discography, including songs from his newest album, "Together," and his hit single "Sandstorm," at a pre-game concert at Gamecock Park. Once in the stadium, Darude visited the sidelines and student section, and he DJ'd during the Gamecocks' game against Kentucky. The musician's song was first played by South Carolina in a game against Ole Miss in 2009 and has since become a Gamecock tradition.
