South Carolina has a crucial matchup coming up this weekend when it faces Alabama. In an effort to get its fan base amped for this SEC showdown, the program revealed its uniform combo for Saturday in an awesome hype video.
After losing the season opener against North Carolina, South Carolina bounced back nicely with a win over Charleston Southern. Ryan Hilinski shined at quarterback with 282 passing yards and three total touchdowns.
Hilinski needs to have a similar outing on Saturday if the Gamecocks are going to stay within striking distance of the Crimson Tide.
While South Carolina will be underdogs for this weekend, the program seems ready to battle the top team in the SEC. On Thursday, the Gamecocks revealed they’ll be wearing their “Armor Battle” uniform against the Crimson Tide.

This is the third uniform combination the Gamecocks will wear this season.
During Week 1, the team wore all white against the Tar Heels. The following week they wore black throwback jerseys with garnet helmets.
Will Muschamp will be without junior wideout Randrecous Davis and junior linebacker Brad Johnson on Saturday. It’ll be tough to knock off Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide, but an upset win would certainly be the biggest story this weekend in college football.
Kickoff for this matchup between Alabama and South Carolina is at 3:30 p.m. ET from Williams–Brice Stadium.
