  1. South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Virginia Cavaliers South Carolina football is looking to finish off the 2018 season with an eighth win in the Belk Bowl against Virginia. Here’s what you need to know about the game: What time do the Gamecocks play? Who: Virginia (7-5) vs. South Carolina (7-5) When: Noon Saturday Where: Bank of America Stadium (75,412) Series history: South Carolina leads 21-12-1. USC won the last meeting 31-7, upsetting the No. 15 Cavaliers in 2003 TV: ABC (Adam Amin, play-by-play; Anthony Becht, analysis; Rocky Boiman, sideline) Radio: 107.5 FM (Todd Ellis, play-by-play; Tommy Suggs, analysis; Langston Moore, sideline) ... See all the radio affiliates around the state here. National: ESPN Radio (Taylor Zarzour, play-by-play; Matt Stinchcomb, analysis; Kris Budden, sideline) Satellite radio: Sirius 94, XM 210 Line: Gamecocks by 5 Weather: Mostly sunny, light north northwest wind. High near 63. Temperature around 59 at kickoff, 61 through the game. Chance of rain below 10 percent. What’s at stake The Gamecocks are looking to reach eight wins for the second year in a row. Through the bowl week, Will Muschamp has reiterated the simple mantra from his Virginia counterpart: “eight is better than seven.” Virginia is looking to cap Bronco Mendenhall’s second season with a win. At Virginia, his team went from two wins to six last year and now sit at seven this season. South Carolina will have a chance to show its offense is more than just Deebo Samuel. The Gamecocks are without the top play-maker and facing a stingy pass defense. The teams, by the numbers .ms-elegant-main { border: 2.25pt double black; background-color: white; } .ms-elegant-tl { font-family: small-caps; font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; } .ms-elegant-left { font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; } .ms-elegant-top { font-family: small-caps; font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; } .ms-elegant-even { font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; } USC UVA Points/Game 32.6 28.5 Opp. Points/Game 27.2 21.8 Yds.

Yds./Game 440.2 382.5 Opp. Total Yds/Game 425.2 337.2 South Carolina players to watch 1. South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley will have to face a good pass defense without dynamic top target Deebo Samuel. Bentley blossomed across the second half of this season, posting 2,953 yards on the year with 27 scores and 12 interceptions. 2. With Samuel out, much more falls on Shi Smith. Bryan Edwards steps up as a No. 1 player, but he’s done that before. Smith will have to help full Samuel’s speed element and what he did on jet sweeps. Smith has 39 catches for 597 yards and four touchdowns. 3. Linebacker Sherrod Greene has been up and down in his first season as a starter. He’ll be key in helping corral quarterback Bryce Perkins, a 1,000-yard rusher and solid passer in his own right. For the season, Greene has 67 tackles, one interception and once forced fumble. Virginia players to watch 1. Virginia’s seven wins are its most since 2011 and a big reason why is Perkins. The former Arizona State Sun Devil transferred to UVa from junior college last January and has been the the dual-threat QB Mendenhall desired. Perkins has already set a school record with 3,314 yards of offense. 2. Perkins’ favorite target is Olamide Zaccheaus. The All-ACC selection is Virginia’s all-time leader in receptions. He’s got 81 grabs for 958 yards and six scores this season, making the speedy 5-foot-8 Zaccheaus one to watch against USC’s depleted secondary. 3. The best NFL prospect in this game might be on the Virginia side. Cornerback Bryce Hall is projected as a first round pick, according to CBS Sports. The physical 6-1, 200-pounder leads the nation with 20 pass breakups.

  3. South Carolina junior defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw out for the Belk Bowl? December 06, 2018 Another South Carolina star looks like he will be missing the bowl game. South Carolina junior defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw responded to a fan on Twitter who said, “Heal up big guy. (Stinks) we wont have you for the bowl,” with “I appreciate it.” The Gamecocks (7-5) will take on Virginia (7-5) on Dec. 29 in the Belk Bowl in Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. Kinlaw, 6-foot-6, 305 pounds, had a procedure to repair a hip injury that has bothered him for much of the season, TheBigSpur.com reported. A USC spokesman would not confirm or deny that report, stating that all announcements on player updates would come from head coach Will Muschamp. Kinlaw had 38 tackles, including a team-high 4 1/2 sacks, during the regular season. He had been the only starting defensive lineman who made it through the entire season without missing a game due to injury. Kinlaw announced via Twitter earlier this week that he planned to return to the Gamecocks for his senior season. Senior wide receiver Deebo Samuel announced earlier this week that he will not play in the Belk Bowl so that he can concentrate on preparing for the NFL Draft.
  4. After the initial bowl line was posted, money comes in heavy on Gamecocks side December 03, 2018 The South Carolina football team opened on Sunday as a modest 3 1/2 point favorite against Virginia in the Belk Bowl. That changed quickly. Within two hours, the line was bet up from 3 1/2 to 6 according to the VegasInsider line tracker. If it holds, it would be the second-most USC has been favored by against an SEC opponent (the highest was 10 against Tennessee and the Gamecocks won by three). South Carolina was a touchdown underdog against Michigan last season, and pulled off the Outback Bowl upset. USC has won four of its past five bowl game. For the year, Will Muschamp’s squad is 7-5 overall and 7-5 against the spread. They had a run of four consecutive covers snapped by only beating 30-point underdog Akron 28-3. Virginia went 8-4 ATS. The Cavs covered seven of the first eight games, but failed to in three of the last four.
  5. Been a while since the last time these two faced off on the Grid Iron How they fared in 2018 South Carolina finished the season with a 7-5 overall record (4-4 SEC) and tied for third in the SEC East Division. This is their third-straight bowl appearance. The Gamecocks have won five of their last six bowl games. Virginia finished the season with a 7-5 overall record (4-4 ACC). They finished tied for third in the ACC Coastal Division. The two should match up pretty evenly. Who do you think will come out on top?
  6. Will Muschamp Press Conference With Video– 12/2/18 – Belk Bowl Announcement South Carolina vs. Virginia – 12/29/18 – Charlotte, N.C. Opening Statement WATCH VIDEO “We’re really excited about going to the Belk Bowl, our first trip here at the University of South Carolina.
