Challenges for South Carolina

South Carolina looks to win its second straight game when it visits Florida in Gainesville. The Gamecocks handled Vandy 38-27 in their most recent game. Gators quarterback Anthony Richardson is a Heisman candidate but he is a solid, dual-threat quarterback. So far this season Richardson has 131 completions in 235 attempts for 1,839 yards, nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. Richardson is built like a fullback and he exploits that fact. He has 488 yards rushing this season for eight touchdowns. If South Carolina can limit Richardson’s production they have a shot at winning this game.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 3:00 PM CT (4:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
