South Carolina football will return to Williams-Brice Stadium after a two-week road trip for its second SEC showdown on Sept. 25, this time against Kentucky.
The game will be a late kick in Columbia.
The SEC announced that the Gamecocks will play the Wildcats at 7 p.m. on Sept. 25 on ESPN2.
The Gamecocks (2-0) will be returning from a matchup with No. 2 Georgia in Athens, Georgia, after winning its first two contests against FCS Eastern Illinois 46-0 and the American Athletic Conference’s East Carolina 20-17.
Kentucky (2-0, 1-0 SEC) will come to Williams-Brice after hosting FCS UT-Chattanooga. The Wildcats blew out Louisiana-Monroe 45-10 in Week 1, and won a hard-fought SEC contest against Missouri 35-28.
South Carolina holds the all-time record over Kentucky 18-13, but the Gamecocks have dropped six of the seven most recent games. Last year’s contest was South Carolina’s final game of 2020, and the Gamecocks were routed 41-18 in Lexington, Kentucky.
