#10 SOUTH CAROLINA 41  NAVY 24

The South Carolina Gamecocks should soundly defeat the Navy Midshipmen tomorrow evening (6:00 p.m., ESPN2). The triple option attack will pose problems and allow Navy to score some points, but the addition of DeVonte Holloman to the safety position against such a prominent running attack will benefit the Gamecocks from a tackling standpoint. The Gamecocks' team speed and powerful defensive front will also help slow the option game. Thankfully, Navy has the 119th passing offense in the country, as the Midshipmen have only attempted 14 passes all season. Conversely, this is the 1st rated rushing offense in the country, with Navy averaging just over 400 yards per game on the ground thus far this season. Fortunately for South Carolina, the impressive rushing numbers have come against Delaware and Western Kentucky. Despite the success they're bound to have, don't look for the Midshipmen to rack up those kinds of yards against the Gamecocks. On the flip side, Navy struggled with the run games of their two less than impressive opponents, so expect Marcus Lattimore to put up Heisman-like numbers again tomorrow before hopefully getting some relief from Kenny Miles and company late. Stephen Garcia needs to have a game where he improves his accuracy and gains some confidence before SEC foes Vanderbilt and Auburn come to Columbia.
