South Carolina Limps into Swamp Facing Early Extinction

South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Florida Gators Betting Predictions, Odds and Picks 10/03/20

South Carolina coach Will Muschamp met the hot seat at the close of 2019. Last week’s College Football betting loss to Tennessee adds to the fire. Muschamp is known for having disjointed offenses. However, it was a weak defense that undermined a respectable offensive showing. Worst of all was a terrible punt return turnover that prevented a comeback chance. Florida got the money in a nice win at Ole Miss. Coach Lane Kiffin’s Rebel debut was spoiled by a stronger Gators team. Namely UF quarterback Kyle Trask delivered a stellar performance. Trask continues to build on his folk-hero status.
