For 64 years Big Thursday had been a state tradition, decreed by a state law to coincide with the annual October State Fair, a rivalry that had been uninterrupted since 1908. Many South Carolians swear that it left Mardi Gras in the dust. The decision to end it was likely caused by the wish on Clemson's part to get the home game in alternate years, but whatever the reason, this game was the end of an era.
