South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp speaks Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019, after the Gamecocks' win over Charleston Southern.

South Carolina football and Missouri will face off on Sept. 21 at 4 p.m. eastern on the SEC Network or the SEC Network Alternate channel, the conference announced Monday.

The exact TV channel will be determined after this upcoming Saturday’s games.

The Gamecocks and the Tigers are SEC East rivals, with USC winning the last three matchups to claim the “Mayor’s Cup,” a rivalry trophy established between the cities of Columbia, South Carolina, and Columbia, Missouri.

Like South Carolina, Missouri dropped its season opener in disappointing fashion, falling 37-31 to Wyoming, before bouncing back in Week 2, soundly defeating West Virginia 38-7. The Gamecocks fell to UNC in Week 1 and trounced Charleston Southern, 72-10, this past weekend.

Last year against Mizzou, USC senior quarterback Michael Scarnecchia stepped in for an injured Jake Bentley and delivered a three-touchdown performance, completing 20 passes for 249 yards. Kicker Parker White connected on a 33-yard field goal with two seconds left to win it after a lightning delay at Williams-Brice Stadium.

This Saturday, South Carolina must first face Alabama at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. Missouri hosts Southeast Missouri at 7:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.
