The greatest rivalry in collegiate baseball is set to get started under the lights at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Friday evening.


CLEMSON (7-1) vs SOUTH CAROLINA (7-1)


These two teams have met 318 times since 1899 and Clemson leads the series in wins with a record of 178-138-2.


At Doug Kingsmore (opened in 1970), Clemson holds a record of 52-28; in games at Fluor Field the series is tied 4-4; at Founders Park (opened in 2009), the Gamecocks hold a 9-4 record vs the Tigers.


Both teams have a lot of new pieces this year and some questions that have yet to be answered in the young season. This weekend's series should help answer some of the questions for each team going forward.
