Things are looking up at South Carolina.
The Gamecocks (7-2, 5-2 SEC) don't control their own destiny in the SEC East, but they can put themselves in good position with a victory at home over Florida on Nov. 16 in their last conference game of the season.
It doesn't hurt that South Carolina has an off week before playing the Gators.
Trust South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier to know exactly what to do with the extra time. He's 8-2 at South Carolina following a bye week.
