USC-Vanderbilt postponed to today

South Carolina didn’t try to plow through this time.
The Gamecocks’ game hosting Vanderbilt on Wednesday was postponed until 4 p.m. today due to wintry conditions in Columbia. Citing concern over the safety of fans, USC pushed the game back a day as snow and ice coated the Midlands.
The game will be live-streamed for free on USC's website, gamecocksonline.com. USC lucked out, in a sense, since its women’s team has a midweek bye this week and Colonial Life Arena didn’t have to reschedule another game.
The Commodores arrived in Columbia before the storm hit on Tuesday evening. They were set to fly out immediately after the game on Wednesday but were forced to wait an extra day. Scheduling is becoming a concern due to Vanderbilt hosting Texas A&M at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday and the Commodores needing to fly back to Nashville, but conditions should be much better by the time today’s game ends.
USC is back at home on Saturday, hosting Alabama.
The Gamecocks played a home game on Jan. 29 as scheduled despite another winter storm. It was USC’s first SEC win of the season, over Texas A&M.
