Another week and another wait-and-see situation at quarterback for No. 8 South Carolina.
Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier is uncertain if starter Connor Shaw is healthy enough to return against UAB (0-1) on Saturday or if he'll again go with backup Dylan Thompson.
Shaw injured his throwing shoulder against Vanderbilt two weeks ago and did not play in a 48-10 victory over East Carolina. Thompson, though, led a resurgent South Carolina passing attack, throwing for 330 yards. That was the best total in Spurrier's eight seasons with the Gamecocks.
Still, Spurrier has downplayed any thought of a quarterback battle, saying Shaw will return to the position when healthy.
Whoever starts under center has the chance to bring Spurrier his milestone 200th victory as a college coach.

South Carolina defeats UAB 49-6 in a blowout win for Steve Spurrier's 200th win as a college coach.
South Carolina's offense struggled in the first half against UAB but exploded in the second half after Dylan Thompson replaced Connor Shaw due to Shaw's injury. It was certainly the tale of two halves but is there a quarterback controversy?

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. At its zenith in the 1990s, the Florida-Tennessee game meant Steve Spurrier tossing barbs, Peyton Manning throwing bombs and Sports Illustrated covers.
It was often the regular-season game of the college football season. In the first 10 years of the new SEC that added Arkansas and South Carolina in 1992, either Florida or Tennessee represented the SEC East in every...
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier isn't directing pregame barbs at Phillip Fulmer. Danny Wuerffel and Peyton Manning aren't throwing any passes.
Yet there's an unmistakable sense of 1990s nostalgia in the air now that national relevance has returned to the Florida-Tennessee rivalry. When No. 23 Tennessee opens Southeastern Conference competition Saturday against...
