COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

Another week and another wait-and-see situation at quarterback for No. 8 South Carolina.

Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier is uncertain if starter Connor Shaw is healthy enough to return against UAB (0-1) on Saturday or if he'll again go with backup Dylan Thompson.

Shaw injured his throwing shoulder against Vanderbilt two weeks ago and did not play in a 48-10 victory over East Carolina. Thompson, though, led a resurgent South Carolina passing attack, throwing for 330 yards. That was the best total in Spurrier's eight seasons with the Gamecocks.

Still, Spurrier has downplayed any thought of a quarterback battle, saying Shaw will return to the position when healthy.

Whoever starts under center has the chance to bring Spurrier his milestone 200th victory as a college coach.
