COLUMBIA, SC (WIS)- Despite a game where Steve Spurrier said the Gamecocks got," thoroughly outplayed, out hustled out coached, outeverythinged," where Arkansas defeated South Carolina, 41-20, the Gamecocks remain ranked in both major polls for the 10th straight week.
South Carolina is ranked 22nd in both polls. the Gamecocks face 24th ranked Florida Saturday in Gainesville. The winner will face the winner of the SEC West for the SEC Championship in Atlanta on December 4th.
But Spurrier's focus now is shifting to making history against the Gators by bringing home South Carolina's first ever SEC division title.
"I realize we'll be huge underdogs after the way (Florida has) played lately compared to how (South Carolina) has played lately, it should make us a huge underdog, but we've got to do something to give our players some confidence to go down there and be competitive with them and got to something good can happen third or fourth quarter and we can win."
