Why we're excited for the Battle of the Carolinas

The last time South Carolina was on CGD

This will be "College GameDay's" 440th road show all time -- and its first-ever visit to a South Carolina-North Carolina game. The Gamecock's last "College GameDay" appearance was 2014; the Tar Heels appeared in 2010. This is the third trip to uptown Charlotte for "College GameDay" in recent years. The show originated from Romare Bearden Park before the 2017 ACC championship game and the 2021 Duke's Mayo Classic when Georgia faced Clemson in a Week 1 top-five showdown.
