South Carolina vs Clemson Kickoff Time, TV Channel, Betting, Prediction and More for Rivalry Week

The arrival of Week 13 of the college football season means the arrival of rivalry week. One of the bigger rivalry games is the annual Palmetto Bowl between the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Clemson Tigers.

Here’s everything you need to know about Saturday’s Palmetto Bowl.

The 2022 Palmetto Bowl will be played in Clemson, South Carolina at the Tigers’ Memorial Stadium. Memorial Stadium has a capacity of 81,500 seats and opened in 1942. Clemson is undefeated at home this season, and the 7-4 Gamecocks are 2-2 on the road this season.

Since 2000, Clemson is 14-7 overall in the Palmetto Bowl and 7-3 when playing the Palmetto Bowl in front of its home crowd.

The 2022 Palmetto Bowl is scheduled for Week 13 of the college football season. The game will be played on Saturday, Nov. 26 at 12 pm ET. The game airs live on ABC.

Our Palmetto Bowl prediction comes from The Duel official South Carolina vs Clemson betting preview.

Clemson is very good, but it’s not great. They were exposed three weeks ago in a 35-14 loss at Notre Dame while gaining just 280 yards of offense. Clemson also trailed Syracuse 21-10 in the fourth quarter before escaping at home 27-21 a month ago. We saw that Syracuse wasn’t as good as they showed earlier in the season, and Clemson definitely wasn’t overrated either.

Playing in the weakest Power 5 conference, the Tigers are ineligible for the CFB Playoffs, nor is it a good bet to see these inflated points on a capable ‘Cocks team beat Tennessee 63-38. A major tout service is Tennessee as its ‘Game of the Year’. Ugh.

Inflation is never a good thing, and especially when betting on overvalued and overbet teams. Clemson’s slightly above-average pass defense in the ACC, and the Tigers’ 412 yards per game ranks No. 6 in the ACC. In fact, against FBS opponents, the Tigers run for an average of 188 YPG and pass for 220 per game. That’s pretty balanced and solid, but put Clemson in the SEC, and they’ll have 3 or 4 losses like South Carolina.

South Carolina’s run defense is a concern in this matchup, but not enough to warrant these big points. Don’t be surprised if South Carolina snaps Clemson’s 10-game home winning streak.
