The South Carolina football team will report for fall camp on July 30 and begin practice for the 2017 season on July 31. 

Coach Will Muschamp's team will hold 26 practice sessions leading up to the Sept. 2 season-opener against N.C. State at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte (ESPN). 

Six Gamecocks on preseason honors lists 

The Aug. 21 practice at Williams-Brice Stadium will be open to the public. Colonial Life Fan Appreciation Day is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 19 at Colonial Life Arena for fans to meet and engage with players and coaches. 

Muschamp will take part in "Carolina Calls" with Todd Ellis on Thursday night during the season at Wild Wing Cafe in the Vista. The radio call-in show will air from 7-8 p.m.

There will be four practices or scrimmages held at the stadium (only one open to the public). Other practices will be held at the new practice fields near the west end of Gamecock Park or in the Jerri and Steve Spurrier Indoor Practice Facility.
