The wager: S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley has a bet with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. If the Gamecocks win, Haley gets beer, bratwursts and cheese. If the Badgers win, Walker gets beer and barbecue.
Clowney circus: Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney didn't live up to his All-Planet hype this season after a great sophomore year and fame gained from his helmet-popping hit in the Outback Bowl last New Year's Day. The NFL-bound junior was kept away from the media in Florida after two recent speeding tickets back home. "We're all wondering if he has a limo to take him out of the ballpark (Wednesday) or not," head coach Steve Spurrier said with a grin.
Weather: 66 degrees, cloudy, 40 percent chance of rain
