A 48-member USC pep band will accompany the South Carolina football team to Arkansas next week, University of South Carolina Athletics Director Eric Hyman announced today.
“It wasn’t in the original plan, but we understand that bringing the spirit of the Gamecock Nation on the road is essential to our fans,” said Hyman. “The band and cheerleaders are an important component of a successful athletics program. We are raising the expectations for everyone in the Gamecock Nation, are committed to competing for championships and want to give Coach Spurrier and our team the best opportunity to have success on the field. The Game Is On!”
The 15th-ranked Gamecocks (6-2, 3-2 SEC) will take on the Arkansas Razorbacks (4-3, 1-3 SEC) on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. ET (1 p.m. CT) in Fayetteville.
