South Carolina didn’t play Saturday, but it still was on the move in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll.
The Gamecocks dropped one spot into No. 14 — last place — during their bye weekend.
Vanderbilt held the bottom spot previously, but knocked off Georgia on Saturday and moved up to No. 12.
The SEC Country Power Poll consists of 19 voters, including ones from SEC Country and around the nation.
The Gamecocks stand at 2-4 at the midpoint of the season. They face UMass at noon on Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium. The Gamecocks will host Tennessee and then Missouri in the following weeks. The Vols checked in at No. 4 in this week’s poll, while Missouri holds a one-point lead on South Carolina as the Tigers were ranked the No. 13 team.
South Carolina’s problems on offense continue to put pressure on its defense. The Gamecocks rank last in the nation in scoring offense with just 14 points per game.
Alabama stayed on top of the SEC and landed all 19 first-place votes after its win against Tennessee.
