National sports media outlets and personalities project the Gamecocks (8-2) to end up in one of three postseason bowls. Is the Sugar Bowl out of the picture?

National sports media outlets and personalities project the Gamecocks (8-2) to end up in one of three postseason bowls.

In recent weeks, South Carolina was the choice in several projections to end up in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. Auburn is now the favorite to go to that BCS bowl after the Tigers' win over Georgia.

The Gamecocks could end up in New Orleans if the team can reach and win the SEC championship game.

For now, here's a roundup of the latest postseason projections for South Carolina.
