The South Carolina Gamecocks put the college football landscape on notice last week in front of a national audience. The Gamecocks flat out dominated then No.5-Georgia at home, winning 35-7 and showing the country that they are a force to be reckoned with not just in the SEC, but as contenders for the national championship. That quest is presented with a huge challenge this week. It’s one thing to do it at home, but now No.3 South Carolina goes on the road to the toughest place to play in in college football. That would be Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home of a reeling LSU team fresh off of their first regular season loss in two years.
South Carolina will be playing in primetime in front of the country for a second-straight week, this time though away from the comfort of their home stadium.
As for the Tigers, they went on the road to Gainesville last week and came away with a very rare loss. But fortunately for LSU, they still control their own destiny when it comes to the SEC West race for Atlanta, as the Gators are in the Eastern division.
However, a second SEC loss would really put them behind the 8-ball with Alabama still having yet to lose a game this season.
We thought that last week would give us a good idea about both teams, and we were right it did. The strength of South Carolina was put on full display, especially with that defensive front. For LSU, the offense was exposed for a lack of production.
Now, we get to see the follow up act, which could be an even truer test than last Saturday.
Oddsmakers are giving the home edge to the Tigers in this one, believing that the Gamecocks will find it tough to play in that environment. LSU vs South Carolina Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have set the Tigers as field-goal favorites over the Gamecocks. To cover this line, LSU will need to win by at least four points, while a loss by two points or less for South Carolina will give the Gamecocks the cover.
South Carolina has been great against the spread this season, going 5-1 through six games. LSU is just 2-4 against the spread this season.
The Gamecocks and Tigers kick off from Baton Rouge at 8pm ET on Saturday night, with coverage picked up by ESPN.
