CLEMSON, SC (WMBF) - Colleges and universities around the state of South Carolina are extending a helping hand to those displaced by Hurricane Dorian. The Coastal Carolina football team is among those receiving aid, as the team prepares for its second game of the season amidst the uncertainty of the storm.
