Darlington Raceway is tapping into the Palmetto State's biggest sporting rivalry.
The track will launch a two-week food drive starting Friday, setting up barrels representing Clemson and South Carolina to collect the canned goods. People can also make cash donations in the name of the school they support.
When all the donations have been counted, the track will fly the winning school's flag at Darlington on Nov. 30 when the Tigers take on the Gamecocks at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia.
Proceeds from the drive will benefit Harvest Hope of the Pee Dee and The Lord Cares of Darlington.
Darlington president Chip Wile said track leaders think the effort is a fun and productive way to show support for the state's college football rivalry and help those in need.
