COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

With ESPN's College Gameday heading to town this Saturday to cap off the game against the Georgia Bulldogs, Gamecock coach Steve Spurrier is asking fans to be nice to analyst Lee Corso.

"Lee Corso likes us," Spurrier said during his weekly press conference on Tuesday. "He made a statement years ago that we would never win the SEC and so far, he's right. I really believe he pulls for us a lot. Hopefully our fans won't boo him. He's a good guy, he really is."

Corso, of course, raised the ire of Gamecock fans back in 2004 when Spurrier first took the job at South Carolina.

The former Indiana Hoosiers coach claimed that Spurrier could never win the SEC even if he coached here for 400 years.

ESPN will be setting up shop on the University of South Carolina Horseshoe later this week for the Saturday morning broadcast.

It will be the broadcast's second time in Columbia in the past two years. They previously visited the USC campus back in 2010 when No. 1 Alabama visited.

Meanwhile, the actual game is set to be broadcast on ESPN beginning at 7 p.m. Saturday.
