SC is off the biggest win in Spurrier’s career at SC as they clinched a spot in the SEC Title gm for the 1st time ever with their 36-14 win over FL. RB Lattimore (964, 4.8) rushed for a career high 212 yds as SC dominated with 395-226 yd and 24-11 FD edges. This could be the biggest letdown spot for any team this week as the Gamecocks have in-state rival Clemson on deck. While South Carolina is 7-0 vs Sun Belt tms incl 2 wins over Troy winning by an avg of 31-14, Troy almost upset LSU late in the yr (led 31-3 late 3Q before LSU came back for a 40-31 win a couple years ago. Troy is off a 52-35 upset loss to FIU in which they suffered a 4-1 TO deficit. SC gets the win but this will be closer than what many people think.
