Big MO.

When the Gamecocks take the field tomorrow night in Death Valley they will be playing for something much more important than a second consecutive victory over their heated cross-state rivals.  This game is an important lead up to what could be one of the greatest seasons in the history of USC football and certainly the most memorable of the Spurrier era.  It has been surprising to see references to the Gamecocks looking past this game to the SECCG.  Even setting aside the intense rivalry, anyone diminishing the importance of the Clemson game ignores the universal psychology of sports where momentum and confidence mean everything at this stage of the season.   The Florida game was a statement win for the Cocks.  Another victory in a hostile environment against a Tiger team looking to salvage something positive from this season would be HUGE for the Cocks and allow them to put the letdown game against Kentucky further in their rear view mirror.  Make no mistake, the Auburn team Carolina will tangle with in Atlanta is much better than the one we faced Week Four at Auburn.  It will take a flawless performance to bring them down, fueled by the momentum and confidence the Cocks will generate in Clemson tomorrow night.  SECCG is the big prize but for this team to leave an historic mark on USC football the road to greatness goes through Clemson.  Go Cocks!!
