Spurrier, Clowney set for season debut

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Steve Spurrier has always liked the attention South Carolina gets by starting its season on a Thursday night.
    
Having All-America Jadeveon Clowney on the sidelines, though, guarantees the Gamecocks will get plenty of attention whenever they play this season.
    
No. 6 South Carolina opens the season at Williams-Brice Stadium against North Carolina. Spurrier loves getting a jump on opening weekend - the Gamecocks have started on Thursday four of the past six years - but was surprised when he found out every NFL team closes the preseason that night.
    
Those NFL teams might otherwise be watching Clowney.
    
The 6-foot-6, 274-pound junior steps on the field for the first time since the Outback Bowl when his helmet-popping hit of Michigan's Vincent Smith became the talk of college football.
