USC fans turn out to stand behind their team

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - USC fans are sending the Gamecocks out in style.

They cheered as players got on busses Friday morning to leave for Atlanta, and they say they're psyched for Saturday's SEC Championship game.

"I think it's good to show support for the team. We're standing behind them," says one local fan.

"So excited! I wish I could have gotten closer because they need to know we're standing behind them," says another.

One USC student is predicting a Gamecock win Saturday by a score of 34-27. "I've been here the past couple of years," he says, "I've seen the Gamecocks do some wonderful things. It's been a monumental year for us."

"I think we're going to shock everybody," another fan says, "I think we're America's team. America's rooting for us."

All the fans seem to agree there will be a sea of garnet and black at the Georgia dome Saturday.
