South Carolina

The Gamecocks are 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. South Carolina is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games versus the Big Ten Conference.


The Wolverines are 5-1 ATS in their last six games after an ATS loss. Michigan is 3-1-1 ATS in its last five Saturday games.


After the first close call of Michigan's season, it turns around for a home non-conference date. Something tells me the Wolverines won't be fully locked in for this one, especially with an it coming directly after the first two Big Ten contests. The Gamecocks will want to erase the bad tastes of the Wyoming game, so look for them to keep it close long enough to stay within the number.
