No. 6 Gamecocks aim to stay hot vs. Kentucky

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

A sixth-ranked South Carolina team that's rolling would seem to have all kinds of advantages Saturday night against reeling Kentucky.

The Gamecocks (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have outscored their last three opponents 128-26 and have won seven of eight dating back to last season. They appear poised to again the Wildcats, especially after routing Kentucky 54-3 last fall at home.

None of that fazes Kentucky (1-3, 0-1).

The Wildcats believe the return of sophomore quarterback Maxwell Smith from a separated shoulder provides the offense they need to end a two-game losing streak and avenge that blowout.

Kentucky has done it before. The Wildcats upset the Gamecocks 31-28 in Lexington two years ago. But South Carolina hasn't forgotten that either and is not looking past Kentucky.
