Challenges for South Carolina

South Carolina is coming off a lopsided win over Charlotte. The Gamecocks get an FCS opponent this week in South Carolina State. This will be a good chance for the Gamecocks to work on their defense. A shutout or single-scoring outing should be the goal for the USC defense. Quarterback Corey Fields Jr. is a weapon for the Bulldogs. He’s thrown for six TDs already this season and averages over 160 yards passing per game. Shaquan Davis leads the FCS in yards per reception at over 27 yards per catch (9 rec. for 249 yards). He has 20 touchdown catches during his Bulldog career. SCSU has one of the best punters in the FCS in Dyson Roberts who averages 46.3 per boot, which is second best in the FCS. +
