South Carolina’s home opener against Kentucky was already going to be a blackout.
Might as well be a sellout too.
The school announced Thursday afternoon the 7:30 Saturday game had sold out. That’s a day after a school spokesman said there were still 500 available.
Listed capacity of Williams-Brice Stadium is 80,250. South Carolina last topped 80,000 for the 2016 home opener against East Carolina, when announced attendance was 80,384.
Never miss a local story.
The game will be on SEC Network.
USC and Kentucky both enter the game undefeated. The Gamecocks have knocked off a pair of Power Five opponents, while the Wildcats struggled to beat Southern Miss and FCS Eastern Kentucky.
