2016 South Carolina Season Preview
The South Carolina Gamecocks came into the 2014 season riding a ton of expectations, and a top 10 ranking. That quickly ended with a dismantling at the hands of the Texas A&M aggies. South Carolina was able to salvage their season by taking down SEC East rivals Georgia and Florida, but it was clear, the Gamecocks were playing for 2015. South Carolina will turn to sophomore Mitch Connor to take over what has become a deadly offensive attack in Columbia. He will have plenty of weapons to dish the ball to, including outstanding running back Brandon Wilds. South Carolina’s defense will rely heavily on a veteran defensive line in 2015, with Gerald Dixon and Phillip Dukes combining to be one of the best inside rushers in the SEC East. Once again the SEC East is a wide open division in 2015, with South Carolina sitting as one of the favorites. Keys for the Gamecocks to bring home an SEC East crown will be games at Tennessee, Missouri, and Georgia. As always, South Carolina will finish the season against in state rival Clemson.
