Expectations are high in Columbia this year. After returning a lot of production and several potential stars in 2017, South Carolina made some noise, finishing 8-4 in the regular season and rallying to beat Michigan in the Outback Bowl.

The Gamecocks head into 2018 with a budding star at quarterback in Jake Bentley and a starting running back and wide receiver who each were expected to do big things last year before suffering injuries.

 

This is Will Muschamp’s third year as coach, so the program is now heavily populated with “his” guys.

You’ve heard all of these talking points all summer, no doubt. The Gamecocks have buzz. They’re facing one of the worst teams in all of FBS in 2017. It seems like a slam dunk.
