CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - For the first time in program history, the Chanticleer football team is set to meet the South Carolina Gamecocks on the gridiron.
A source in the CCU sports program told WMBF News Wednesday morning that on November 23, 2013 the Chants will travel to Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia to face the Gamecocks in a historic meeting between the two schools' football programs.
The official announcement was made by CCU Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek at a press conference in Conway on Wednesday.
"Since we hosted the 2010 NCAA Super Regional and knowing the excitement those games generated between the two fan bases, I have been in talks with South Carolina to see Coastal play the Gamecocks in football, baseball and basketball," Yurachek said. "We originally had agreed to play South Carolina in football during the 2016 season but a date opened up next year and we were able to make it work.
"The opportunity to compete against USC in both football and baseball during the regular season is significant for our student-athletes, coaches and various constituencies across the state. We currently compete against USC in several sports and adding football and baseball to this mix is special. I would like to thank former USC Director of Athletics Eric Hyman for beginning this process and new Director of Athletics Ray Tanner, as well as Senior Associate Director of Athletics Charles Waddell, for moving these agreements forward."
For Coastal, the football game will be the Chanticleers' regular season finale while the Gamecocks will now close the 2013 regular season with home games versus Mississippi State, Florida, Coastal Carolina and Clemson.
"I know how exciting this game will be to our fans, our student-athletes and football fans in general across the state of South Carolina," said CCU Head Football Coach Joe Moglia.
Yurachek did say the final contract between the two schools has not been officially signed, but CCU's compensation for playing USC in football will be in a similar range of their past games with FBS opponents like Georgia and Clemson. When the Chants played UGA in 2011, they received $475,000.
