South Carolina football has released the schedule for its 2019 preseason training camp.

The Gamecocks report on Thursday, Aug. 1, with the first practice set for Friday, Aug. 2.

Fan Appreciation Day is 3 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10 at the Jerri and Steve Spurrier indoor practice facility.

USC and coach Will Muschamp are scheduled to scrimmage twice — first on Aug. 12 and again on Aug. 17. Muschamp has said he would like to figure out the team’s backup quarterback battle around the 15th practice in camp, and that second scrimmage will count as the 14th.

The Gamecocks open their season Aug. 31 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, playing North Carolina and coach Mack Brown in his first season back with the Tar Heels.
