South Carolina’s football team will get a nice, leisurely afternoon game against FCS foe Western Carolina after SEC play has wrapped up.
The Gamecocks-Catamounts game will kick off at 4 p.m. at Williams-Brice Stadium on Nov. 19, the SEC announced Monday. The game will be broadcast on SEC Network Alternate.
South Carolina (5-4, 3-4 SEC) faces Florida on Saturday, pitting Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp against his former team.
Western Carolina (2-7) will face Furman this week. They just snapped a five-game losing streak with a 32-29 win against VMI (3-6). WCU also lost to East Carolina, which the Gamecocks beat in September.
Never miss a local story.
South Carolina and Western have not met since 1989. The teams played a four-game series in four years, with South Carolina winning all, none closer than 21 points.
