USC, Clemson play bowl games now

January one is the big day for South Carolina's college football teams.

The Gamecocks kick off now (11 a.m.) against Iowa in the Outback Bowl. Watch it on ESPN. Follow it online.
The Tigers kick off at 1 p.m. against Nebraska in the Gator Bowl. Watch it on CBS. Follow it online.

ESPN is picking both South Carolina schools to lose: Iowa 27, South Carolina 13; Nebraska 35, Clemson 27. Get their logic here. You can get all sorts of stats for USC here, and Clemson here.

And, finally, ESPN also has some background on each bowl game: USC, Clemson.

Good luck, and if your team loses, best wishes in your Palmetto State rival losing as well.

Update January 1, 11:40 a.m.: Just spotted this bare-bones, but surprisingly functional set of game info links over at The State. Note the odds links at the top.

Also, USC's off to a bad start. Down 14-0. Ouch.
