The day has arrived when the South Carolina football team and thousands of its fans learn where they’ll spend the final days of 2017.
Bowl announcements for the Gamecocks (8-4) and other postseason-eligible SEC teams are on tap for Sunday.
The CFP Selection Show begins at noon on ESPN. The Gamecocks’ bowl selection is expected to be made official later in the afternoon.
Most national predictions, including college football insider Brett McMurphy, forecast a Florida trip for USC: most likely Tampa/Outback Bowl, with the TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville still an option.
The TaxSlayer Bowl indicated via Twitter that it would make its announcement around 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
USC coach Will Muschamp will speak with the media about the team’s bowl selection at 6 p.m.
