South Carolina Gamecocks vs. North Carolina Tar Heels: Game Thread

New, 145 comments

After what seems like an eternity, Gamecocks football is finally back. To kick things off (see what I did there?) the Gamecocks will travel north to face off against their "no we're Carolina" rivals in Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

What: South Carolina vs North Carolina

When: 9/3/2015 6:00 PM EST

Where: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, N.C.

Well, Gamecock fans, we've made it. After a long, merciless 2014 campaign and an even longer off-season South Carolina looks to make amends in 2015.

Plenty of questions will be answered over the coming weeks and months but it all starts here.

Will Connor Mitch be any good? Will the defense not be the worst ever this time around? Who will catch footballs not named Pharoh Cooper?

One area of emphasis will be the offensive line. With Mitch making his first collegiate start, it's important that he have some time to operate in the pocket. There are questions on North Carolina's defensive line so this should be a relatively lukewarm battle in the trenches.

Keep an eye on the trench-war, but more than that, be excited that college football is finally back!
