Gamecocks First Three Game Times Announced


As football season creeps closer and closer, the excitement begins to rise as well. The SEC Network added to the excitement by releasing the times of the first three games of season.

The Gamecocks will kick off the season on Thursday, Septemeber 3 with the Belk College Kickoff Game in Charlotte, NC against a very win hungry North Carolina team. The game starts at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The Gamecocks  home opener against Kentucky will be broadcast on Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. on the SEC Network. South Carolina hasn’t lost at home to Kentucky since 1999, and holds a 17-8-1 all-time advantage over the Wildcats. The Gamecocks are coming off an upsetting loss last year in Lexington and are looking to redeem themselves at home.

The third game of the season will be played in Athens against the Georgia Bulldogs on September 19. Kick off will be at 6 p.m. and will be broadcasted on ESPN. The Gamecocks have won four of the last five games against the Bulldogs, and their last loss was while playing in Athens.
