While the location and status of the game may be somewhat up in the air, the presence of Leonard Fournette is a given. Steve Spurrier discussed how the Gamecocks plan to slow down Fournette amongst other topics in his weekly gathering with the media.

Here are some highlights from the Week 6 press conference:

Injury update:

RB Brandon Wilds should be 100% by Saturday, and will start if he is. It looks like he'll be able to practice most of the week.

WR Deebo Samuel has been kept out with a hamstring injury the past couple of weeks, but could be back this week.

C Alan Knott could come back this week, but Spurrier believes Zack Bailey has filled in just fine thus far.
