South Carolina and UCF will meet at noon ET on Saturday, September 28, it was announced today. The game will be televised on either ABC, ESPN or ESPNU.
The contest will mark the Gamecocks’ first trip to Bright House Networks Stadium (45,323) in Orlando. Carolina has won all three previous meetings with the Knights, but all three of those contests were played in Columbia, the most recent coming in 2005. That season opening contest was also the first game coached by Steve Spurrier at South Carolina. The Gamecocks came away with a 24-15 win that night.
The Gamecocks (2-1, 1-1 SEC) are ranked 12th in this week’s Associated Press poll and 13th in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches poll. UCF (3-0) is coming off a big win at Penn State and is listed among the other teams receiving votes in both polls. Both teams are off this week.
The network that will carry the game will be decided following this week’s action.
