South Carolina (2-4) vs. Massachusetts (1-6) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Oct. 22
Game Time: 12:00 pm
Venue: Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, CO
Network: SEC Network
It hasn’t been the shocking breakthrough season under Will Muschamp some Gamecock fans might have been hoping for – the offense has been a nightmare – but there’s still a chance to turn this around if the team can take advantage of this ridiculous home stretch.
USC has a five-game run in Columbia, but it lost its first two fights to Texas A&M and Georgia. There’s Western Carolina still to face, but it’s going to take something special to get to a bowl game. It’s got to start with a win over a plucky UMass team.
The Minutemen might be 1-6, but they gave Mississippi State all it could handle, and it did a great job against the Florida offense to start the season. The defense, though, hs been getting hammered on lately, and the offense isn’t good enough to keep up the pace.
South Carolina is dead last in the nation in scoring offense, but for the first time all year it’ll score more than 20 points with the running game finally starting to work against a porous UMass defensive front. The Gamecocks will need to fight for a full four quarters, but they’ll stop their slide with a workmanlike and conservative effort.
