Challenges for South Carolina

South Carolina has excelled in blocked kicks (3), block punts (3) and passes intercepted (9). After that, they have very little to hang their hat on. The Gamecocks have to start improving in stuff like rushing offense (102nd out of 130 teams), and fumbles lost (128th, 7 fumbles). They won’t move into the top 10 nationally in any of those categories but if starting with Tennessee, they can slowly improve game by game they might have a shot at knocking off a struggling Clemson team at the end of the regular season. Tennessee is no juggernaut either.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN2 Network.
