SPT-UMFB26-36

A rematch from 2013, which resulted in a 33-28 win over the Wolverines in what became the breakout game nationally for Jadeveon Clowney, the SEC vs.

MI is headed to Tampa to play in the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day.

Big 10 matchup will be held at noon, January 1, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. During the contest, former SC defensive end Jadeveon Clowney gained notoriety for "the hit", where he forced a fumble for his violent tackle of MI running back Vincent Smith with 8:21 remaining in the fourth quarter.

MI (8-4, 5-4 Big Ten) was in limbo over a bowl destination up until Sunday afternoon, when it was revealed Alabama edged Ohio State for the fourth and final spot in the College Football Playoff.

The Gamecocks are the only "Power Five" conference team to improve their record by more than one win in each of the past two years.

The date and time of the matchup in the photo also appears to be off.

Two teams are officially headed to Tampa for a New Year's Day game.

The Gamecocks also won in 1980.

The South Carolina Gamecocks found out their bowl destination Sunday afternoon. MI defeated Florida, 41-7, in the Citrus Bowl, Jan. 1, 2016, and fell to Florida State, 33-32, in the Orange Bowl on December 30, 2016. The Gamecocks were 6-6 in the 2016 regular season before losing to USF in the Birmingham Bowl.
