Clemson, South Carolina seniors at crossroads

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - It's something none of the seniors at Clemson or South Carolina expected - going winless or undefeated in the rivalry.

But now that the 13th-ranked Gamecocks' upperclassmen can go 4-0 in the series, they're looking to complete the sweep. Meanwhile, the senior for No. 12 Clemson want to avoid becoming just the second class to leave campus without a win against the hated Gamecocks.

Clemson senior center Dalton Freeman says he grew up 15 minutes from Williams-Brice "and it's been awful going home these past three years."

Gamecocks senior defensive end Devin Taylor says attitudes changed three years ago when highly regarded players bought into what South Carolina could become. Top-rated prospects like Stephon Gilmore, Marcus Lattimore and Jadeveon Clowney all decided to become Gamecocks and the turnaround began.
