Gamecocks climb polls

South Carolina inched up in both the Coaches Poll and the AP Poll on Sunday

After falling in the polls over recent weeks (despite victories), the South Carolina Gamecocks climbed the nation's college football polls on Sunday, moving upwards at the expense of three Saturday losers - Stanford, Oklahoma, and Georgia.

With those three teams falling, the Gamecocks climbed three spots in each poll, coming in at 11th in the AP Poll and 9th in the Coaches Poll.  As many of you know, the latter is still used in the BCS ratings, so could be important to the Gamecocks' chances of appearing in a BCS bowl, or as a tiebreaker for the SEC East.

The Gamecocks joined seven other SEC teams in the polls, led by the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide.  The Gamecocks only loss so far this season, Georgia, clocked in at 15th in the AP and 16th in the Coaches Poll.  Future opponents that are ranked include Missouri (14th AP / 14th Coaches), Florida (22nd / 22nd), and Clemson (3rd / 4th).  UCF received votes in both polls as well.
