Last season, Spencer Rattler became the first USC quarterback since 2013 to beat the Clemson Tigers. On Saturday, in presumably his final game in the rivalry, Rattler will try to duplicate his 360-yard, two-touchdown performance last season to beat Clemson for a second consecutive year. However, is it really the last time he’ll face the Tigers?
Rattler has accepted an invitation to the “Senior Bowl” but wasn’t quite ready to close the book on his Carolina career when he met with the media on Tuesday.
“I’m focused on this game, obviously, on Saturday. I’ve got to take care of that first,” Rattler explained. “It could be my last time out there. You never know; I’ve got another year of eligibility as well.”
Whether it’s his last game in the rivalry or not, the Phoenix, Arizona, native has quickly developed an appreciation for the matchup between USC and Clemson.
“It’s an amazing rivalry, fun time on the field,” Rattler said. “Our main focus is us. We’ve got to play our best ball to win this game. It’s going to be an electric environment. Last year is last year; we’re focused on this game Saturday.”
