The Gamecocks are getting geared up and ready to travel to Orlando, Florida this weekend! They will be taking on Central Florida, and by the sounds of it, UCF is ready to add the Gamecocks to their list. Carolina is sitting at 2-1 while UCF is holding a 3-0 standing with one of those wins being over Penn State. This is a sellout out game, and both teams will be leaving it all on the field.
We already know the Gamecocks’ Conner Shaw will be leading the offense, along with Mike Davis and Brandon Wilds, who played over par two weeks ago against Vanderbilt. Other Gamecocks to be looking forward to this weekend are tight ends Rory Anderson and Jerell Adams, along with key players Nick Jones and Shaq Roland. Carolina has won 17 consecutive regular season games against non-conference opponents, so this weekend is going to be a huge showdown. UCF is also welcoming back two key starters, as one was suspended and the other injured, linebacker Willie Mitchell and tackle Torrian Wilson. The UCF linebacker, Mitchell, will be facing off against the Gamecocks All-American Defensive End, Jadeveon Clowney. Mitchell won’t be working alone to stop Clowney, but as we all know Clowney searches for the best possible match-up on the line.
This game is going to definitely be one for the books especially for UCF because this will be the first time they play on ABC Live. Steve Spurrier is ready to hit the road running this weekend, despite the challenge in front of him. But as any Gamecock knows, any challenge given, is a Challenge Accepted!
