No. 3 South Carolina is set to play No. 9 LSU in Death Valley this coming weekend. Despite the meteoric rise of the Gamecocks this year, there are five reasons they will flop in their first real road test.
The Gamecocks have traveled to Vanderbilt and Kentucky this season, but neither win should be considered a true test for this team. The LSU Tigers are coming off a tough road loss to Florida and are hoping to find redemption this Saturday against a Top Five opponent.
The Gamecocks will struggle for the first time since Week 1 in Baton Rouge on Saturday. Watch for these five storylines to light the way to a characteristic South Carolina flop.
