The USC football program has history with the Bowden coaching family. The Gamecocks scored one of the greatest wins in school history in 1984 against Bobby and Florida State. They had their problems with Tommy (2-7) when he was at Clemson. And they were 0-2 against Terry when he was at Auburn. They’ll see Terry again Saturday in Columbia in the regular season finale with a Noon kickoff.
The Gamecocks are 6-5 and coming off the loss to Clemson. The Zips are 4-7 and losers of four in a row. The Gamecocks are favored by 30.
Earlier this week Bowden met with the media in Akron to preview the game.
