VIDEO OF THE DAY
Coach Spurrier's weekly press conference: http://gamecocksonline.cstv.com/allaccess/?media=213484
A win over Auburn Saturday would give the Gamecocks 10 wins for just the second time in school history (1984).
It would also be South Carolina's first win over Auburn since joining the SEC; Auburn is the only SEC team South Carolina has not beaten since joining the conference in 1992. Auburn has won all of the five contests since Carolina joined the SEC.
