These two teams have a total of six losses between them, but look at who the six are: Alabama, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Ohio State, Florida and LSU.
You could make the case that all six of those teams are six of the top 13 or so teams in college football.
Some people may think South Carolina played the tougher schedule just because it played in the SEC, but that's not the case at all.
South Carolina did not face Alabama or Texas A&M this season, two of the best teams in the conference.
Out of conference, the Gamecocks faced East Carolina, UAB, Wofford and Clemson. Compare that to Michigan's, who faced Alabama, Notre Dame, Air Force and Massachusetts.
Other than a very tough stretch in which South Carolina faced Georgia, Florida and LSU, its schedule looked quite easy.
As mentioned earlier, this game isn't quite a toss-up, but it's not far from it.
