The South Carolina Gamecocks take on the Missouri Tigers Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.
Chef Ramone Dickerson, of Columbia’s 2 Fat 2 Fly and Wing City, took a turn with Asian flavors to come up with his Mizzou Death Skewers, a blend of sweet and heat, with a Wasabi Aioli dipping sauce. Dickerson says, “Enjoy as we beat the snot outta Mizzou!!!”
