GOG 2010-11 #17: South Carolina

UK heads to the house of horrors in Columbia still seeking their first SEC road win.  The Gamecocks find themselves tied with Florida for the division lead in what is proving to be a tightly contested SEC season.  A victory would go a long way to appeasing the masses as well as put Kentucky in a much better position in the conference going forward.   On a personal level, as Clemson fan I desperately do not want South Carolina to beat UK again.


Series History

 Kentucky leads the series 42 - 10, although the Cats have dropped the last two games in Columbia.
