South Carolina fan trolls Clemson, Tennessee with airplane message ahead of Orange Bowl matchup
South Carolina fans had a little bit of fun at Clemson and Tennessee’s expense ahead of the Orange Bowl on Friday.
Someone paid for an airplane to fly over Hard Rock Stadium and deliver the following message: “Enjoy your bowl game — Gamecocks”
While that’s an expensive prank, it is will-timed. Both Tennessee and Clemson were in contention for a College Football Playoff berth before losing to South Carolina in late November. Instead, they will meet in the Orange Bowl on Friday afternoon.
Here’s video of the prank:

South Carolina’s win over Clemson marked the Gamecocks’ first win in the rivalry series since 2013. Clemson had won seven consecutive meetings against its in-state rival.
The loss prompted Clemson to make a quarterback change in the ACC Championship Game the following week. DJ Uiagalelei played the first two series of that game, but was ultimately benched in favor of Cade Klubnik. Uiagalelei later entered the portal and Klubnik is expected to make his first career start in the Orange Bowl on Friday night.
Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. ET.
