In five games this season, South Carolina hasn’t allowed more than 27 points in a single one of them. That’s little consolation to first-year Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp.
South Carolina fell in a competitive 24-13 game to Texas A&M on Saturday and checked in at No. 13 in the weekly SEC Country Power Poll.
The poll consists of 21 voters, including ones from SEC Country and around the nation.
The home loss dropped South Carolina to 2-3 on the season.
The Gamecocks have dropped their past two games, both conference games. They dropped to Kentucky last week 17-10 before coming home and losing to Texas A&M.
USC opened 2-1 with wins at Vanderbilt and against East Carolina. Its schedule picks up now, starting with a rivalry clash with Georgia on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
The Gamecocks fell to Georgia last season 52-20 in Athens after a closely fought 38-35 win in 2014.
South Carolina’s next four games will be at Williams-Brice Stadium against Georgia, UMass, Tennessee and Missouri.
Check back next week to see the Week 5 installment of the SEC Country Power Poll.
