There hasn't been a football hangover like this in the Palmetto State since New Year's Eve 2010. That was the last time before Saturday fans of the state's two major college programs endured defeats on the same day.
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said he had a hard time sleeping after the 20th-ranked Gamecocks fell at unranked Tennessee 23-21 on a field goal as time ran out.
Clemson fans know the feeling.
The ninth-ranked Tigers allowed the most points in Death Valley history in a 51-14 loss to Florida State, which replaced Clemson at No. 3 in the country
Both Clemson and South Carolina have been fixtures in the top 25 the past few seasons, giving football fans in the state plenty to brag about before this weekend.
