WHAT TO WATCH FOR

This will be all about seeing how the Gamecocks play in their first full game without Dominique Archie. It will also be interesting to see whether Jacksonville - which lost to California and Florida State - follows Miami's lead and focuses on zoning up USC and trying to keep Devan Downey out of the lane.

BOTTOM LINE

The Gamecocks have had four days to regroup after losing Archie (out indefinitely). But given that the Dolphins were picked to win the Atlantic Sun, a win would be a confidence boost.
