Clemson and the University of South Carolina don't just compete on the football field.
Researchers at both universities compete for federal research funding from organizations like the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. And on that score, USC has come out on top in recent years.
USC pulled in $210 million in research funding during the fiscal year that ended June 30. That was an increase from the $206 million USC got the year before.
Clemson got $141 million for research in 2009. That was a $10 million drop from the $151 million Clemson received in 2008.
