      Garnet and Black game is not just for the football fans

      Gamecock fans get their first chance to see what the team of the future will look like Saturday at the wrap up to spring practice known as the Garnet and Black game.

      COLUMBIA (WACH)- Gamecock fans get their first chance to see what the team of the future will look like Saturday at the wrap up to spring practice known as the Garnet and Black game.

      The game usually showcases younger players and gives fans a chance to experience Gamecock football six months before fall camp begins in August. Plus it's free.

      There are also events for the not-so rabid football fans. At 11 a.m. Camden-native Patrick Davis will present a free concert in the Farmer's Market amphitheater.

      The Gamecock Club will hold Fan Fest before and after the game in the Gamecock village.

      About 30 minutes after the game has ended the fan fest will move inside the stadium where fans can have their pictures taken on the field and see where the Gamecocks play at the Brice.

      If you're going, you better get there early.

      About 34,000 fans turned out in 2012. Parking is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Most of the gates will open at 9 a.m.

      Parking prices for lots range from $5-10. Parking at the Key Road lot is free.
