Gamecocks to take on UConn in Bowl

It was reported HERE and HERE earlier today that the Bowl (aka Pizza Bowl) has invited the Gamecocks and the UConn Huskies to participate in the 4th annual game that takes place on Jan. 2 in Birmingham, Ala. at 2pm ET.

We all knew that Carolina was heading that direction but the question was "who" they would play...most had rumored that it would be Pitt but they are heading to Charlotte.

USC has been bowl-eligible in each of Steve Spurrier's five seasons and a trip this year is well-deserved for 'da cocks due to a brutal schedule in 2009.  South Carolina has won four of its last six bowl games and will be well prepared as they seek their fifth.  Huskies are bowl-eligible for third-straight year and are making their fourth bowl appearance in program history.  UConn will also come ready to fight and will make this a great game.

UConn and USC, both 7-5, have never met. UConn lost their five games by a combined total of 15 points.  So again Gamecocks fans don't think for one second that the Huskies will come in to this game and rollover.

More on the game and UConn later.
