- With a new era beginning in South Carolina this year, the Gamecocks look to do something they haven’t done since 2013, beat Clemson. Will Muschamp never beat Clemson, though the Gamecocks scored the most points on Clemson in 2018 when former and now South Alabama QB Jake Bentley threw for 500+ yards in a 56-35 loss. The Gamecocks hope Shane Beamer can beat the Tigers, but can it happen? The short answer is no, at least not this year. The Gamecocks are just trying to get back to a bowl as the Tigers look to hear back to the playoffs.
Will South Carolina ever beat Clemson under Beamer? I believe so, I think by the 2024 season Carolina can at least compete and make it a good rivalry again. Beamer has done great on the recruiting trail so far, with a few 4 ⭐️ prospects in 2022 class, including QB Brandon Davis from Delaware. On the other hand, Clemson has had a slow start with no 5 ⭐️ so far not the top recruiting class in the ACC for 2022 (Florida State).
That brings us back to the question, can South Carolina finally break their loosing streak against Clemson in the next four years. Yes, but it will be tough. I believe Carolina can beat Clemson by the year 2025.
