It's that time of year again!!!!
College baseball's premier rivalry is this weekend as South Carolina (7-0) meets Clemson (6-1) for three games in three different sites. The series opens on Friday in Columbia at Carolina Stadium with first pitch at 7 p.m. Game two of the series shifts to Greenville and the Reedy River Rivalry contest at Fluor Field with first pitch at 2:05 p.m. The series concludes on Sunday in Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium at 4 p.m.
Carolina has had success against Clemson in recent years winning 20 of the last 28 contests between the two schools dating back to the 2007 season. South Carolina won two of three games last year with a pair of shutouts.
Both teams come into the contest nationally ranked in all of the weekly polls. South Carolina is ranked No. 3 by Baseball America, No. 4 by Perfect Game, No. 5 by Collegiate Baseball and No. 6 by the NCBWA. Clemson holds rankings of No. 11 by Baseball America, Perfect Game and the NCBWA as well as No. 1 by Collegiate Baseball. (As we all know, the collegiate baseball ranking is wrong!!)
