COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina’s dropped its first game in the past four Saturday. But the Gamecocks stayed steady in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll after their 20-7 loss to Florida.
The Gamecocks remained the No. 12 team in the conference.
USC was voted as high as No. 10 this week with a low of No. 14.
The SEC Country Power Poll consists of 26 voters, including ones from SEC Country and around the nation.
South Carolina had won three-straight games heading into its clash with Florida, an opportunity to secure a bowl berth, stay in the SEC East race and get Will Muschamp a win against his former team. But the Gamecocks again struggled on the road, struggling to generate offense early and failing to tackle consistently in the first half.
South Carolina heads into its final home game Saturday against Western Carolina.
Alabama received all 26 first-place votes to hold the top spot, as it has all season. LSU rose to No. 2 in this week’s poll, with Auburn and Florida coming in at No. 3 and 4, respectively.
