COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier could earn himself another statue if his 13th-ranked Gamecocks defeat No. 12 Clemson this weekend.
South Carolina (9-2) could pull off its fourth-straight victory in the rivalry, something the Gamecocks have accomplished once in the series that was first played in 1896. Spurrier can also become the program's all-time wins leader with 65 victories, surpassing Rex Enright's mark he tied a week ago.
Spurrier says he's got too much to worry about with Clemson's high-speed offense and defense that's given up ground, but held the line when it mattered most.
The Gamecocks (9-2) have won two of the past three games against Clemson (10-1) at Death Valley.
Spurrier says Clemson is an early-season loss to Florida State away from being in the national title hunt.
