Challenges for South Carolina
This certainly should be a blowout by the Gamecocks but the South Carolina team can’t afford to be complacent with Charlotte. Teams like this usually lose to power conference teams but sometimes, like Texas A&M and Appalachian State a couple of weeks ago, the unexpected occurs. Fifth-year quarterback Chris Reynolds leads the 49er offense. So far this season Reynold has completed 45 of 62 passes for 597 yards, seven touchdowns, and one interception. During his career, Reynolds has tallied 9,628 yards passing while completing 733 passes of 1,194 attempts for 77 touchdowns and 27 interceptions. The Gamecocks have to keep Reynolds under wraps and not allow the 49ers to turn this into a tight ball game.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPNU Network.
