At least one Clemson player allegedly used racial slurs toward South Carolina players during Saturday's rivalry game.
According to Josh Kendall of The State, Clemson players allegedly used racial slurs towards South Carolina players during the Tigers' 56-7 win over the Gamecocks on Saturday.
South Carolina linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams said this following the game:
“They used the n-word, one of their offensive linemen. I don’t know which number. We are going to get our get-back. We definitely have this game circled next year. We are waiting 365 days to get this team back. They did a lot of disrespectful things on the field. We are on a mission. We are definitely going to be ready.
Wide receiver Terry Googer mentioned racial slurs during the game as well on Twitter following the contest:
Googer later tweeted that he was referencing Clemson fans allegedly using racial slurs.
Tensions were very high in Death Valley before the contest as well as Will Muschamp and Dabo Swinney did not shake hands prior to kick off at first. They did eventually hook up for a friendly handshake however.
