You need a scorecard to keep up with who’s starting at quarterback for many SEC teams.
Ole Miss is the latest to make a change with Shea Patterson out after a season-ending knee injury.
But one constant for South Carolina has been sophomore quarterback Jake Bentley, whose stock continues to rise in the SEC.
In fact, Connor O'Gara of Saturday Down South now ranks Bentley as the third best quarterback in the SEC.
“Bentley got a chance to regroup after the weak offensive showing at Tennessee. Through seven games, Bentley has a 12-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio and he hasn’t thrown a pick in a month. That’s key for an offense that doesn’t have much room for error. Against a Vanderbilt defense that struggled mightily in SEC play, Bentley should have an Arkansas-like performance.”
