Gamecocks football coach Will Muschamp reflects on his second string quarterbacks, Jake Bentley, and upcoming rivalry week after the 49-9 victory over Chattanooga on Saturday, November 17.

Way back in May, South Carolina’s football team was projected as a 19-point underdog for this week’s trip to Death Valley and Clemson.

It turns out it, that was conservative.

The Gamecocks opened as 25 1/2-point underdogs according to Vegas Insider. The 6-4 USC squad is looking for a signature win in a season where it missed a couple chances, while the Tigers are aiming for the second perfect regular season in four years.

South Carolina is 6-4 against the spread, coming off covering a 30-plus point spread against an FCS squad. The Tigers are 6-5, and failing to cover against Duke snapped a streak of five in a row beating the spread.

Clemson has won four in a row in the series, after South Carolina had taken five from 2009-2013. The Tigers lead the all-time series 69–42–4.
