Saturday’s game will be the 119th all-time meeting between Clemson and South Carolina. Before the 2020 series was put on hold by the COVID-19 pandemic, teams had played every year from 1909 through 2019 in what was then the second-longest consecutive active streak in a rivalry in the nation.

The only longer consecutive rivalry at the time was Minnesota vs. Wisconsin, which had been played every year since 1907. Despite the hiatus, the 118-game ClemsonSouth Carolina series entered 2022 as the 11th-most-played rivalry on the FBS.
