Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, South Carolina will overflow with spectators for Saturday night’s matchup against No. 5 Tennessee.

As announced by South Carolina’s social media team on Monday night, the game on Saturday will be sold-out under the lights.

The capacity for Williams-Brice Stadium is set at 77,559 fans.

However, according to ESPN, each of South Carolina’s sellouts this season has been over capacity. With South Carolina’s fifth game of the season moved to a Thursday night, all of the Gamecocks’ home Saturday games have been sold out.

Here’s a look at how South Carolina home games have been throughout the 2022 season:

  • Game 1 vs Georgia State 35-14 (W) – 78,297
  • Game 3 vs Georgia 48-7 (L) – 78,212
  • Game 4 vs Charlotte 56-20 (W) – 77,982
  • Game 5 vs SC State 50-10 (W) – 61,551 [Thursday, Sept. 29]
  • Game 7 vs Texas A&M 30-24 (W) – 77,837
  • Game 8 vs Missouri 23-10 (L) – 77,578

The No. 5 Tennessee Volunteers and head coach Josh Heupel will bring their electric offense, led by future Heisman candidate Hendon Hooker, into Williams-Brice this Saturday night. The Vols have the No. 1 offense in the country at 5,437 total yards, an average of 543.7 yards per game, and 62 offensive touchdowns.

This will be the third straight sellout that Tennessee has played in on the road.

  • Tennessee @ Pittsburgh – 59,785/68,400 – 87.4 percent full
  • Tennessee @ LSU – 102,321/102,321 – 100 percent full
  • Tennessee @ Georgia – 92,746/92,746 – 100 percent full
  • Tennessee @ South Carolina – 77,559/77,559 – 100 percent full (announced)

With South Carolina being an announced sellout, Tennessee will have played in front of a sold-out stadium in 9 out of their first 11 games of the season (six at home, three on the road).

  • Akron @ Tennessee – 101,915 – 100 percent full
  • Florida @ Tennessee – 101,915 – 100 percent full
