CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Fans of both Clemson and South Carolina held rallies to gear up for the rival game on Saturday.

Clemson Athletics held "Cocky's Funeral" at 6 p.m. in the amphitheater before burning an effigy of the Gamecocks' mascot. The event featured appearances from Tiger Roar, the Gospel Choir, Rally Cats and Colonel Sandy Edge. Free Chick-fil-A was offered after the burning.

The Gamecocks held their own event, however, on Monday night as well. The annual Tiger Burn kicked off at 7 p.m. on Greene Street Intramural Field. Cocky, the USC cheerleaders, dance team, student performance groups and musical entertainment were present at the event.

The rival teams will face off at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 26.
