Alabama vs South Carolina: A Historical Retrospective


Since South Carolina resided in the ACC until the mid 1970s and held off joining the SEC until 1992, the opportunities to face the Crimson Tide on the football field have been relatively rare. In fact there have been only 13 games between the two in the 72-years since their first contest.

Saturday will be Homecoming on the University of Alabama campus and it will mark the fourth time the Gamecocks have been the opponent for the celebratory football game.

Note: While we are relying on the record book created by the UA athletic department for these entries, the publicly available edition is only complete up through 2006 and the information on these records available in the current Media Guide is limited. We welcome any information concerning records which may have been surpassed since that time.
