Troy vs. South Carolina Football Series History

South Carolina leads 3-0


I won’t call Troy a cupcake. They’ve had some strong teams over the past few years and pulled off upsets of power conference teams. This 2-2 Troy team is hard to figure. They haven’t played a formidable opponent yet. I think South Carolina should be able to pull this one out at home. I don’t think it will be a lopsided win though.
