Clemson and USC fans have been forced to live without competition between any of their major programs this entire academic year due to Covid. There was no football game. No men’s or women’s basketball game. The last heated faceoff between the rivals was last year’s baseball series won by Clemson two games to one.
This weekend the baseball teams will again give their fans something to sink their teeth in. The teams are set to renew their rivalry at Clemson Friday, weather permitting, Saturday in Greenville and Sunday in Columbia. Clemson is 3-0 after sweeping Cincinnati last weekend. USC is 4-0 with a sweep of Dayton last weekend and a win over Winthrop Tuesday.
Tuesday night Clemson coach Monte Lee joined us on SportsTalk to set the stage for the series from his vantage point.
