Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- If you've ever been to Williams-Brice Stadium, you've probably seen a number of cabooses on a train track.

Those 'Cockabooses' come alive on Saturdays in the fall, whether the Gamecocks are playing at home or on the road.

"It's like no other tailgating," said Garrett Humphries.

Humphries is no stranger to tailgating before the Gamecocks take the field on Saturdays, but this year, it's different.

"Since I was young, I was always infatuated with the Cockabooses, so I was vert excited when this one became available," he said.

He bought the Cockaboose back in May, and said it's always been a goal to own one. Every home game, there's a group of about 20-30 people that tailgate at 'Cocky's Cockaboose', where there's plenty of food, drinks, and "2001" playing over the loud speaker.

Has owning a Cockaboose lived up to Humphries' expectations?

"It has. It definitely has," he said.
