What a bowl win would mean for South Carolina’s offseason momentum
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.
