The 2022 college football season kicks off in just under three months, so we at #SportsTalk live by the creed, “it’s never too early to start talking football.” With that in mind, we’ll take a few moments over the next couple of months to preview each of the opponents facing USC, Clemson, and our other instate programs heading into the fall.
Recently, Georgia State head football coach Shawn Elliott dropped by the program to discuss the Panthers’ season opener in Columbia versus USC. Very few coaches know the Gamecocks’ program better than Elliott. The Camden native served as an assistant at Carolina from 2010-16, moving into the interim head coaching role following Steve Spurrier’s resignation in October of 2015.
Elliott, who has guided the Panthers to three bowl wins, is obviously excited about the opportunity to return to Columbia on September 3rd. Especially after Georgia State won seven of its final eight games last season, including a bowl victory over Ball State at the Camellia Bowl on Christmas Day.
