Week 12: the Citadel

The Citadel brings their triple option attack to Williams-Brice this weekend for a game that the Gamecocks most certainly should win. The Bulldogs don't have anywhere near the size on the lines that South Carolina has, but a lot of FCS schools like the Citadel utilize the option and cut blocking for precisely this reason: it serves as an equalizer. I think the game will be a close one early on. The Citadel will move the ball on our defense in the 1st Half and our offense never seems to show up until the last third of the game. Eventually our talent and size advantage will wear the Bulldogs down, and we'll pull away in the 2nd Half. Prediction: USC 27 - Citadel 14
