The South Carolina Gamecocks represent the University of South Carolina in the NCAA Division I.

The University of South Carolina is the only major college athletic program in the country that uses “Fighting Gamecocks” as its official nickname and mascot. The University’s athletic teams have been known as Gamecocks for almost 100 years.

At the turn of the century (1900), after struggling for more than decade under numerous nicknames, the school’s football team was first referred to unofficially as “Gamecocks.” In 1903, Columbia’s morning newspaper, The State, shortened the name to one word and South Carolina teams have been Gamecocks ever since.

While the men’s teams were traditionally known as the Fighting Gamecocks and the women’s teams were previously known as the Lady Gamecocks, this distinction was discontinued in part to eliminate any gender bias in the athletic department and in part to counter misconceptions about the gamecock mascot endorsing bloodsport.[1]
