COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: South Carolina is 5-2 ATS L7 in series. Last year: SOUTH CAROLINA (-21) over Kentucky, 54-3. This will be a mismatch. SC QB Connor Shaw completed 20 straight passes against Missouri in his last game (31-10 win). South Carolina is going for their ninth straight win and should have little problem defeating a team in Commonwealth Stadium, where there will be very little atmosphere. South Carolina is led by star RB Marcus Lattimore, who had two TDs and caught 7 passes last week against the Tigers. Kentucky’s QB Maxwell Smith missed last week’s shutout loss (38-0). He has a bruised joint in his throwing shoulder and if he can’t go, freshman Jalen Whitlow will start. That’s not a good sign against Jadveon Clowney and company up front for the Gamecocks.
