Multiple South Carolina players say Clemson players called them racial slurs during Saturday’s game.

Players from both sides scuffled before the start of the game and Gamecocks linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams accused the Tigers of “disrespect” during the game. 

“They called us N-words, some of the offensive linemen,” Allen-Williams told reporters after the game. “They did a lot of nasty stuff.”

“They called one of our defensive linemen—they used the N-word,” Allen-Williams added. “One of their offensive linemen. I don’t know which number.” 

Wide receiver Terry Googer and defensive lineman Dante Sawyer also said they were victims of racial abuse.

Clemson won the game, 56–7, its third straight victory over the rival Gamecocks.
