South Carolina was dealt a huge blow to their hopes of repeating as SEC East champions when Marcus Lattimore was injured during the Mississippi State game.

Lattimore suffered a torn ligament and cartilage damage while blocking for Bruce Ellington during the fourth quarter of the Gamecocks' win over Mississippi State.
