COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Now everyone driving into South Carolina will know the University of South Carolina Women's basketball team is the national champion.

Just in time for holiday weekend travel, the South Carolina Department of Transportation started installing the 15 national championship road signs Friday.

The Gamecocks won the 2017 NCAA Championship in April.

The initial sign went up at southbound SC 277 near the Harden Street Extension intersections with the others going up at Welcome Centers near the South Carolina border and at several other locations around the City of Columbia. The signs, for which SCDOT funds were not used, will remain in place for one year.
