South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp explains what winning the Belk Bowl would mean for the Gamecocks after the season.

South Carolina football had a little snafu with the Las Vegas line before last season’s bowl game.

This year in the Belk Bowl against Virginia, things appear a lot smoother.

The Gamecocks opened as a 3 1/2-point favorite against the 7-5 Virginia Cavaliers. USC covered a touchdown spread in an upset win last season.

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.

Kickoff is at noon, ahead of the College Football Playoff.
