After the loss last week to Kentucky for the 5th year in a row, my motivation levels for football are at critically low levels. The optimist in me says that the 2017 version of the Gamecocks lost to Georgia and Kentucky as well, and still won 9 games. Something just feels different about those losses this year though. The word is SC will trot out a new starting quarterback for this game. Normally this would be concerning but given QB and WR play so far this season I’m not sure it will matter too much. The Gamecocks should try to just run the ball this game.
I want to pick SC in this one, but given all the injuries and the play so far this season against any team with a pulse, I just can’t do it. I don’t think the Gamecocks will be able to make enough plays in the Secondary to contain Drew Lock, and I don’t think the Offense has enough juice to keep up.
Prediction: USC 17 - Missouri 31. Miss Teriyaki Chicken thinks the Gamecocks will squeak by 31 - 28.
