COLUMBIA, S.C. - Fourth-ranked South Carolina will close out the regular season this weekend, as the Gamecocks will travel to compete at No. 8 Kansas State on Friday and at No. 3 Oklahoma State on Saturday. It will mark the end of the the Gamecocks' first regular season in the SEC era.
"We're looking forward to going on the road and having the opportunity to compete against two tough Big-12 opponents this weekend," South Carolina head coach Boo Major said. "Since all of our postseason competitions will take place on the road, this will be one final test to see where we are and where we need to improve. We faced Oklahoma State in the season opener, and if you look at their results this season, it's easy to see they're a good team because they've scored a bunch of points on some other teams. Kansas State was a top-5 team at the beginning of the week, and even though they slipped a few spots, they're just as good at No. 8 as they were at No. 5"
