South Carolina’s game Saturday against Vanderbilt will be played as planned at Williams-Brice Stadium, a source told The State Monday afternoon.
The game between the Gamecocks and Commodores will kick off at 4 p.m. and be televised by the SEC Network.
USC’s game this past Saturday against LSU was intended to be played at Williams-Brice but was moved to Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La., because of the historic flooding in Columbia and the Palmetto State.
Law enforcement can handle this coming weekend’s activities expected to draw large crowds to Columbia, including the South Carolina State State Fair and USC’s game against Vanderbilt, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said Monday.
The Vanderbilt equipment truck will be bringing uniforms this this weekend.
This past weekend, with the Commodores having an open week, the Vandy football program filled two trailer loads of water, generators and shoes that were contributed to the flood relief effort in Columbia and the Midlands.
LSU proved to be very hospitable for USC with the LSU band playing the South Carolina fight song and alma mater. LSU also played “Sandstorm” on the stadium sound system.
Billboards around Baton Rouge, La., read: “Geaux Gamecocks: We stand strong with you,” and “Geaux Gamecocks: Make yourself at home”.
