No. 6 Tigers, No. 10 Gamecocks show mutual respect

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier truly likes Clemson's Dabo Swinney. The Gamecocks coach also likes the mutual respect coming from both sides of the Palmetto State's biggest rivalry.

No. 6 Clemson (10-1) plays at No. 10 South Carolina (9-2) on Saturday night. The Tigers are trying to end a four-game losing streak in the rivalry, while the Gamecocks look to continue a school-record 17-game home win streak.

And there's not much off-the-field spice in the 111th meeting. Instead, it's been a mutual admiration society headed up by the head coaches.

That hasn't always been the case. Two years ago, Swinney took exception to a comment wrongly attributed to Spurrier and went on a rant tearing down Gamecocks football.

Spurrier last season said Swinney usually talks a "bunch of garbage."
