South Carolina Has Steamrolled Vandy

South Carolina starts their season facing the hapless Vanderbilt Commodores in a game that should have Gamecocks’ fans licking their lips. South Carolina has won their past seven meetings with Vandy, which includes a 19-10 victory last season in which they forced five turnovers.

SHARK BITES
  • The UNDER is 7-2 in the past nine games between South Carolina and Vanderbilt.
  • Vanderbilt is 2-14 SU in their past 10 games within the SEC.
  • South Carolina lost their final five road games last season.

South Carolina hired Will Muschamp after he spent last season as the defensive coordinator of Auburn. Muschamp and newly hired offensive coordinator Kurt Roper will first need to find a quarterback, which could go a long way to determining how this team plays throughout the season.

Vandy’s defense looked phenomenal last season under the guidance of head coach Derek Mason, but the question remains if the offense can keep up. The Commodores averaged just 15.2 points per game last season, but the offense is returning most of their key players this season and there is some hope that the team can improve with the ball.
