@ South Carolina
We know Tennessee isn’t scared of the Gamecocks. The Vols are 1-2 against Spurrier’s boys the last three years, but their losses have been close games. They fell 38-35 in Columbia in 2012 in a game they had multiple chances to win. In 2011, they lost in Neyland 14-3 with freshman Justin Worley at quarterback. All signs point to a close game this year especially with South Carolina’s defensive struggles.
Their secondary just isn’t very good and they don’t have Clowney to put pressure on Worley. Can you imagine Clowney against this year’s offensive line? That might end up in a full body cast for at least on Vol QB. But he’s gone and Tennessee will be able to put up some points on the Gamecocks. The Vols, from top to bottom, match up very well with them so don’t be surprised if this game comes down to the wire.
