Hometown: Columbia, S.C.
Colors: Garnet and black
Tailgating: Partying in a freight caboose is the preferred way to tailgate in South Carolina.
"We have a cockaboose railroad," said Dexter Hudson, editor of the Spurs & Feathers, a weekly recap of Gamecocks sports.
"About 24 cabooses have been painted, have a big Cocky on it, which is our mascot."
Originally people bought them for about $40,000, he said, but they put a lot more into them.
"(They) have bars, chandeliers, TVs hooked up to the stadium," Hudson said. "You can cook in them, have TVs on top and below."
If a party doesn't have tickets, they'll watch it in the caboose.
Food: Fried chicken, chicken wings, burgers and steak.
"We have pretty good barbecue down here in South Carolina," Hudson said.
Attire: Dressing in school colors, garnet and black, maybe with a nice pair of shorts in the summer.
