CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - It's the week Clemson and South Carolina fans have waited for all year. And it's never been this big - or this testy.
The 12th-ranked Tigers (10-1) and 13th-ranked Gamecocks (9-2) play Saturday at Death Valley - if South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier remembers where the stadium is.
Spurrier and Clemson coach Dabo Swinney have spent the past year trading straight-on jabs since the Gamecocks won their third straight in the rivalry, 34-13 last seasons.
A few days later, Swinney went on a rant that should live for the ages in rivalry lore. He ripped South Carolina's pedigree, nickname and football history against Clemson, all over a comment attributed to Spurrier on social media the head ball coach never said.
Spurrier's questioned Swinney's smarts and poked fun at Death Valley's location.
