Schedule Preview

Eastern Illinois (9/4)
South Carolina rolls. Projected Score: South Carolina 56, Eastern Illinois 7

at.East Carolina (9/11)
East Carolina is a step up from Eastern Illinois but it shouldn’t be much harder for the Gamecocks. Projected Score: South Carolina 45, East Carolina 21

at.Georgia (9/18)
South Carolina should struggle against an experienced Georgia team. Projected Score: Georgia 45, South Carolina 13

Kentucky (9/25)
South Carolina definitely needs at least one conference win before October. But, it will be hard to come by. Projected Score: Kentucky 35, South Carolina 10

Troy (10/2)
Troy is a top half Sun Belt team. The Trojans will challenge the Gamecocks but I believe Shane Beamer will have the Gamecocks ready. Projected Score: South Carolina 38, Troy 24

at.Tennessee (10/9)
This game will be very close. The projected fifth and sixth place teams in the SEC will battle it out for the fifth spot in the division likely. Two awesome offensive minds that are both new SEC head coaches (South Carolina’s Shane Beamer, Tennessee’s Josh Heupel). This will be fun. Projected Score: South Carolina 24, Tennessee 17

Vanderbilt (10/16)
South Carolina rolls. Projected Score: South Carolina 38, Vanderbilt 17

at.Texas A&M (10/23)
Texas A&M is as talented as their recruiting classes the past few years have been. This means that Texas A&M should be really good in 2021. It will be tough for South Carolina to get a win here, but I could see a trap game set up in this one for A&M. Projected Score: Texas A&M 38, South Carolina 30

Florida (11/6)
South Carolina could set up another trap game against their Florida rivals. Projected Score:Florida 24, Missouri 10

at.Missouri (11/13)
With it being Shane Beamer’s first season as South Carolina’s coach Missouri should get the win. But, the Gamecocks will make it competitive. Projected Score: Missouri 28, South Carolina 20

Auburn (11/20)
Auburn gets revenge on South Carolina for upsetting them last season. Projected Score: Auburn 42, South Carolina 20

Clemson (11/27)
Shane Beamer and South Carolina are far away from what Dabo Swinney has done at Clemson. I’m not saying he can’t do it, but it will take time. Clemson rolls. Projected Score: Clemson 49, South Carolina 20

Projected Record: 5-7 (2-6) SEC
