South Carolina athletes, others assist with flood relief efforts

South Carolina athletic teams are rallying together to help those in their community affected by the floods from last weekend. The football, women's basketball and men's basketball teams have taken time to help at flood relief shelters and to collect food and water donations to deliver to local departments.

The state of South Carolina has seen historic flooding with some areas receiving as much as 20 inches of rain between Oct. 2 and Oct. 4. Classes at South Carolina have been canceled and the football team's home game against LSU has been moved to Baton Rouge. All ticket sales after expenses will go back to South Carolina, according to LSU's athletic department. The Red Cross will also be at Tiger Stadium to accept donations.

After Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana in 2005, Baton Rouge wasn't ready for LSU's game against Arizona State. The Tigers and Sun Devils played in Tempe with LSU as the home team, much like South Carolina will do on Saturday.

Fellow SEC school Vanderbilt also knows how much damage flooding can cause. Its Nashville campus was hiy by a major flood in 2010. The Commodores aim to have a truck loaded up with water bottles and generators to take to Columbia on Friday.

Gamecocks football coach Steve Spurrier has also urged fans to help donate their efforts to the Red Cross.
