On Saturday, the No. 7 South Carolina Gamecocks face yet another tough road test, this time against the No. 2 ranked Florida Gators.
It was pretty evident that the crowd noise from the LSU faithful caused problems on the offensive side of the ball for the Gamecocks, while motivating a struggling Tigers attack to generate over 400 yards of offense.

South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier’s return to "The Swamp" is always a special occasion, but this is the highest both teams have been ranked when facing off in Spurrier's eight-year tenure wearing the headset for the Gamecocks.
Both teams’ success depends heavily on defense and the ability to run the ball.
