On to Alabama

Well, it wasn’t pretty, and it did look a lot like a trap game for awhile. But South Carolina held on for a 28-26 win over Kentucky.

USC should’ve had a more decisive win here. And I don’t mean by the statsheet, which was fairly even. Given Kentucky’s injury situation, and it’s struggles, it could’ve been worse.

But for whatever reason, the Gamecocks looked a step or two off today. They can’t play like that and stay on the field with Alabama, that’s for sure.

That said, they still reach the halfway point of their season 5-1.

Kenny MIles finished the day with 100 yards on 17 carries, including the decisive third-down run.
But the star was obviously Alshon Jeffery. That gave Nick Saban something extra to think about.
