I don't think I'm overstating the case in proclaiming this a big time matchup today in the SEC. This one could go a long way to deciding a lot of major bowls later down the road.  College Gameday was about a mile away on USC's Horseshoe, the most historic and beautiful part of South Carolina's campus.  Kirk Herbstreet even picked a South Carolina upset, while Corso donned the Elephant head.

It may be Alabama's toughest road test left on the schedule, and after the Iron Bowl, the biggest hurdle between them and another perfect regular season.

For South Carolina, this could go a long way in legitimizing their push for an SEC East championship and a rematch with likely either Auburn or Alabama in the SEC Championship.

There are star players and intriguing matchups all across the field, many of which we'll discuss today.

But for now, let's just enjoy a great SEC matchup while the rest of the conferences look on in envy.  

We'd love to have your comments in the comments section.
