Prediction:

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.
