Comments

This one is a head scratcher. South Carolina used a quarterback against Florida that had only seen limited action on the field in a game for the Gamecocks. Florida likely didn’t have much to go on to prepare for Jason Brown. However, this week Missouri will have plenty of film to study to prepare for Brown. The problem is Missouri’s defense is attrocious. I think South Carolina wins a close one.
