Challenges for South Carolina

The Gamecocks got out to a 2-0 start but then were brought back to earth with a lopsided loss to Georgia. Kentucky is a beatable team. They too are having issues with keeping their quarterbacks healthy. Zeb Noland, the USC starter, injured his hand in the last game. If Noland can’t go it’ll probably be Luke Doty. UK’s Jordan Wright, who missed the Chattanooga game, may be back on the field on Saturday. Whichever team’s quarterback situation pans out the best will likely win.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN2 Network.
