The Gamecock offensive line has been able to open up running lanes this season.
Marcus Lattimore had 818 yards in the first seven games of the season (Lattimore suffered a serious knee injury against Mississippi State), and Brandon Wilds took over in Week 7 and has amassed 486 rushing yards thus far.
So, the Gamecock offensive line has got the job done in run blocking, but it hasn't been very good in pass protection. The Gamecocks rank 81st in sacks allowed with 2.25 per game, and they haven't been great at stopping penetration behind the line of scrimmage, either. South Carolina is ranked 44th in tackles for loss allowed.
Nebraska has been pathetic getting after the quarterback, though. The Cornhuskers are ranked 93rd in sacks and a horrid 113th in tackles for loss.
The Cornhuskers might not get many sacks(although they should at least get pressure), but Nebraska has seen a number of schemes similar to the one South Carolina runs.
Staff writer Jon Nytwawa of Ohama.com wrote that the Cornhuskers have seen bootlegs, zone-read options, QB draws and leads, as well as improvisational quarterbacks against Ohio State, Northwestern, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, so they are familiar with variations of the South Carolina offense and the threat posed by Shaw.
The Cornhuskers had quite a bit of practice against running quarterbacks this season, so the Nebraska defense won't be surprised against South Carolina.
