The South Carolina football season is set to start on September 5th with a home matchup against Coastal Carolina, but upcoming decisions may alter those plans.

With COVID-19 cases still prevalent in the United States, university administrators will be tasked with making a decision on the start of the upcoming 2020 football season. The Ivy League is expected to make its decision on Wednesday, and the conference seems to be leaning towards a verdict of either shortening the season or pushing it into the spring of 2021.
