The No. 8 South Carolina Gamecocks football team (2-0, 1-0 SEC) play host to the UAB Blazers (0-1, 0-0 Conf. USA) in a Saturday showdown that kicks off at 7 p.m. ET (FSN). South Carolina may be favored by 33.5 but don't think this will be a cake walk as USC will have to keep focus and not suffer a slip up to a hungry team.There are other storylines in this game to be mindful of as coach Steve Spurrier goes for his 200th career victory and running back Marcus Lattimore needs one touchdown to break the school's all-time record of 33, set by George Rogers and matched by Harold Green.USC should get the win, give Spurrier his 200th and allow Lattimore to set a new standard. But they need to respect the following five Blazers and not let these men have too much success. Keep your eyes on these guys and how USC shuts them down:1. Jonathan Perry. The 6-2 junior threw for 317 yards and two TDs in the Blazers' 39-29 season-opening loss. The USC secondary will need to be ready and ...

UAB-South Carolina Preview

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier is just one win away from 200 victories in his college coaching career — a milestone he barely recognizes.

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...

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. When No. 23 Tennessee opens Southeastern Conference competition Saturday against...
