Challenges for South Carolina
South Carolina is catching Texas A&M at a bad time. A time when the Aggies are surging. Their former backup quarterback, Zach Calzada, who is now the starter seems to be rapidly improving. The most recent team to lose in College Station was Alabama. In that game, Calzada completed 21 of 31 passes for 285 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. If the Gamecocks can get better pressure on Calzada than what Alabama was able to do, they might have a shot at upending the Aggies. Another area of emphasis should be in the takeaway department. South Carolina is first in the SEC and fifth nationally in interceptions made with 10. If the Gamecocks could exploit this against A&M it might very well swing the game in their favor.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
