Gamecocks Hold Steady in Polls
Sept. 6, 2011
The University of South Carolina football team remains ranked 12th in the both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches' poll, it was announced today.
The Gamecocks (1-0) are coming off a season opening 56-37 win over East Carolina in Charlotte. South Carolina is preparing for its SEC opener, which is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10, in Athens against the Georgia Bulldogs (0-1). The Bulldogs slipped out of the top 25 following their season opening loss to Boise State. It will be the first time South Carolina has faced an unranked Georgia team since the 1997 season.
Oklahoma remains the top ranked team in both polls. The next two spots are held by SEC Western Division schools, LSU and Alabama. Boise State and Florida State round out the top five in both polls. Stanford, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Oklahoma State, Nebraska and Virginia Tech hold down spots six through 11 in both polls.
The Gamecocks have been ranked every week since moving into the Top 25 after last year's season opening win over Southern Miss.
