They've been on a collision course all year long. They started in the top ten. Three months later, they're still there.

No. 6 Clemson and No. 10 South Carolina can't avoid it any longer: they're seasons will, in large part, be defined by what they do against each other Saturday.

Do the Tigers finally have the team to end the four-game losing streak? Are the Gamecocks worthy of a BCS bowl bid, and potentially ready to get their shot at the SEC's elite?

You're invited to check in starting at 3 p.m. Monday to talk about it, and our format will be a little different than it's been all year long.

Post and Courier beat writers Ryan Wood and Aaron Brenner were friends in their previous positions, covering Auburn football for separate newspapers. They constantly work together behind the scenes to bring you the best dual coverage of South Carolina and Clemson around.

Monday afternoon, Wood and Brenner will join forces and lead the conversation. Join us. We'll get you ready for Clemson-USC week.
