GAMECOCKS DROP FOURTH IN A ROW TO FLORIDA
FITSNews – November 10, 2007 – It’s starting to look like the best way to win the Heisman Trophy is to play the South Carolina Gamecocks. A week after allowing Arkansas running back Darren McFadden to romp for 335 yards, South Carolina’s defense fell apart again tonight against Florida and its Heisman candidate Tim Tebow, who ran for a career-high five touchdowns (and threw for another two) en route to a 51-31 Gator victory.
In its last two games, South Carolina’s defense has given up 99 points and 1,188 yards. South Carolina has an “open date” next week, but given the way the Gamecocks (6-5, 3-5 SEC) are surrendering points lately, oddmakers are still putting the over-under at 60.
This one wasn’t even close, as head coach Steve Spurrier lost four in a row for only the second time in his career. Four weeks ago, his team was ranked sixth in the country and boasted a 6-1 record. Today, they’ll be lucky to make it to the Poulan Weedeater Independence Bowl.
