The Gamecocks received positive results early in the - game. South Carolina’s 1st kickoff to Missouri by Landon Ard sailed out of bounds & the - Tigers took possession at the - 35-yard line.

Cimaglia’s 2nd kick, this time to begin the - 2nd half, moreover found the - end zone. The Gamecocks have not returned a kickoff since Spurrier became coach in 2005.

Missouri Tigers vs. South Carolina Gamecocks: Game Time, TV Schedule and Preview

<!– google_ad_section_start –> View photo . Neither of these teams looked particularly acceptable last week, yet guess what? Whoever wins this game is going to lead the - SEC East This is a game for the - lead in the - SEC East. As bizarre as it sounds to state it a week after South Carolina fell behind Vanderbilt 14-0 early & Missouri lost at home to Indiana, the - team in that wins this game will be in control of the - division. The other other Tigers would be the - sole team remaining undefeated in-conference, while South Carolina would be 3-1 in SEC play before anyone else in the - East has even played three conference games. For South Carolina, this game is another in a string of de facto elimination games. Because of the - loss to Texas A&M, the - Gamecocks still have to keep pace with Georgia despite the - head-to-head win against the - Dawgs. And losing to Missouri would basically knock South Carolina three games back in the - division. With a likely loss to Auburn & a game against Tennessee in that looks scarier by the - week, the - Gamecocks can hardly afford to drop this one. But Missouri is a little desperate as well. …

Missouri vs. South Carolina: Tigers steal one from the Gamecocks 21-20

<!– google_ad_section_start –> View photo . Well this sucks. South Carolina completely dominated Missouri for three & a half quarters & still came away with a loss. On a night when Lorenzo Ward finally received a strong performance out of his defense, that’s a tough pill to swallow.

Mike Davis ended the - night with nice counting stats, yet the - Tigers bottled up Carolina’s running game for most of the - night. …
