South Carolina is a home underdog Saturday. A win for the Gamecocks would not only make them bowl eligible and guarantee a .500 season, it would mark to back to back wins over Auburn for the 1st time in program history. Auburn is playing with their back up QB after Bo Nix suffered a season ending injury. The game marks an opportunity for South Carolina playing at home in primetime.

Auburn comes in at 6-4 they have played a difficult schedule. The four losses came at Penn State, home vs top ranked Georgia, at Texas A&M and last week's home loss to Mississippi State. South Carolina looked its best two weeks ago in a home blowout win over Florida. They fell just short at Missouri last week.
