What is the biggest story in South Carolina for 2015?

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

It's been one heck of a year for news in South Carolina, and we need your help stacking our top 10 biggest stories of the year.

We've picked out our list of top five stories and will unveil them to you at a future date, but we need you to help us round out the full top 10!

We want you to take the following six stories and pick out the one you think deserves to be the most important. 

Steve Spurrier hangs up the visor: After a career spanning decades and becoming the winningest coach in South Carolina history, coach Steve Spurrier put his career as a coach out to pasture, making way for a coaching search following Spurrier's almost 11 seasons at the school. 

Tractor-trailer explosion on I-26: Eight cars, a tractor-trailer and a gasoline tanker crashed on Interstate 26 east on a May morning. Everyone walked away with their lives, but it’s an explosion that rocked a morning commute for Midlands drivers.

Officer-Involved Shootings: South Carolina had 42 officer-involved shootings in 2014, but has already bypassed that total with an increase in statewide officer-involved shootings.

Viral video of man’s traffic stop: Will Stack candidly video-taped himself following a traffic stop in Lexington County in the wake of the shooting of a North Charleston man to express the proper way to cooperate with officers during a traffic stop.

Two officers killed in the line of duty: Officer Greg Alia was shot and killed by suspect Jarvis Hall when Alia responded to a suspicious person call. Hall tried to flee the scene before shooting Alia. Columbia Police Officer Stacy Case died in a crash with a USC police officer. Both officers were on their way to a call of shots fired in the Vista, which ultimately ended in a suicide call.

Clemson's rise to No. 1 in the polls: South Carolina may not have had the season they wanted, but the Clemson Tigers have exceeded expectations and have become a national championship contender.
