Another week, another wait-and-see on Gamecocks QB

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...

No. 7 South Carolina's defense leading way again

One of South Carolina's biggest questions going into the season was whether the Gamecocks' new defensive coordinator could keep the unit among the nation's elite.

The tale of two halves

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?

UF-Tennessee has the feel of their old rivalry

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...

Gators vs. Vols brings back memories

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.
