South Carolina enters Saturday's game at 2-1 in the SEC East with a chance to solidify a lead over the Missouri Tigers. And right now, oddsmakers favor Carolina to get it done, installing them as 5.5-point favorites over the Tigers for Saturday afternoon's clash.
With College Gameday in town, the Gamecocks hope to continue in their quest to win the SEC East this season, which despite a poor performance against Vanderbilt appears achievable - they currently hold the tiebreaker over two East opponents (Georgia and Vanderbilt), and welcome two of their remaining rivals to Williams-Brice Stadium in Tennessee and Missouri. If the Gamecocks can win in Lexington, KY and Gainesville, FL, which looks more likely after the Gators' putrid performance against Alabama, then another SEC East team will have to win every conference game to overtake the Gamecocks, no matter what happens in Auburn in October.
South Carolina and Missouri kick-off at 7pm ET on Saturday evening.
