The GoGamecocks Podcast: ‘Extremely’ big win over Kentucky sends USC into open week

South Carolina football sent its fans into the first open week of the season happy, coming away with a 24-7 win against Kentucky this past Saturday to snap a streak of five consecutive losses to the Wildcats. Now at 2-3 on the season, the Gamecocks and coach Will Muschamp continue to have an outside but realistic chance at a bowl game.

In the latest episode of The GoGamecocks Podcast, The State sports writers Greg Hadley and Ben Breiner discuss Saturday’s win, focusing on the success of USC’s running backs, the defense’s ability to stop Kentucky’s run game and the secondary’s play against UK’s quarterback. They also take stock of what has been a wild season to date, name the biggest surprises for Carolina and consider what the team must do better over its next seven games. Finally, Ben and Greg break down the men’s and women’s basketball teams for USC as they start practice ahead of November’s opening games.

The GoGamecocks Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Google Play Music, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Pandora, RadioPublic, Luminary, Pocket Casts, Podchaser, Castbox, Castro and Overcast.
