The Cats go on the road to South Carolina with a minty-fresh, brand new, never-been-opened #1 ranking attached to their name. South Carolina swept the season series last year, and the game at SC was particularly revolting to watch. I expect that will change Tuesday night.
This is the 51st matchup between South Carolina and UK. As mentioned above, SC has won the last two games, but overall UK is 41-9 against the Gamecocks.

Congratulations to BigSkyCat and JJohn0110 who tied for the lead for GOG #19 with 11 points each! EagleTDL and UKWildCatFanatic were 2nd with 7 apiece in an overall low scoring GOG (much like the game). Ken Howlett has tied a2d2 for the overall points lead with Wild Weasel not far behind. The race to win the GOG championship could be even closer than the race to win the SEC!
