If one were looking at just final scores, you would have though that the Gamecocks were clearly flat last week against Kentucky in their 31-28 loss but that was not the case as they jumped out to a 28-10 1H lead but could not overcome an injury to RB Lattimore in the 2H. Vanderbilt meanwhile is off a 43-0 loss to Georgia a team that South Carolina beat earlier this year. Even though he threw two crucial interceptions last week SC QB Garcia is still avg 221 ypg (70%) with a 10-5 ratio. The Gamecocks have lost two of the last 3 to Vandy but coming off a loss and a SEC East title still within reach, SC won’t overlook them here and get the bounce back win.
