Report: S. Carolina has contacted Panthers about moving game to Charlotte

According to a report from The Charlotte Observer, South Carolina officials have reached out to the Carolina Panthers about using Bank of America Stadium as the site for the contest versus LSU this upcoming Saturday. 

The Panthers are not playing at home this weekend, which would in theory open up the facility for use. However, there are a few logistical problems with the potential to derail the proposed plan. 

The grass was just recently re-seeded, which coincided with a Panthers away game. If the two collegiate teams play on the field, it may not be a quality playing surface. 

Secondly, a NASCAR event is occurring this weekend in Charlotte. Hotel rooms may be scarce for those wanting to attend the South Carolina/LSU game (theoretically, if played at this site). 

This will be a fluid situation, with an outcome potentially appearing within the next few days.
