Challenges for Tennessee

The Gamecocks will be playing their third of four straight road games against Tennessee. Spencer Rattler is the quarterback for the Gamecocks. He’s a decent quarterback but throws more interceptions than touchdowns. So far this season he has 180 completions in 277 pass attempts for 1,982 yards eight touchdowns and nine interceptions. Beware of South Carolina when punting. The Gamecocks have five blocked punts so far this season.
