This was supposed to be the season that South Carolina receiver Alshon Jeffery became even more unstoppable in the Gamecocks' push for an Southeastern Conference title. Instead, five games in, Jeffery is struggling to make plays for No. 18 South Carolina.

But Jeffery isn't close to last year's numbers with 19 catches for 332 yards as the Gamecocks prepare for Kentucky (2-3, 0-2) on Saturday.
