Vanderbilt football helping South Carolina flood relief

You have to appreciate the way the nation has rallied together to provide support and relief for the South Carolina community following the massive flooding from Hurricane Joaquin.

The damage has forced the South Carolina Gamecocks team to move a scheduled home game against the LSU Tigers to Baton Rouge.

Despite the switch for their home game, South Carolina will be receiving the profits from the game outside of the regular cost of hosting a matchup in Death Valley. Gamecocks fans can also receive discounted tickets.

Now, another team in the SEC region is helping out the South Carolina community.

The Vanderbilt Commodores football program used their equipment truck to load up water bottles that they will drive to South Carolina to help with the flood relief during their bye week.

It is an amazing gesture.
