No. 13 South Carolina looking to rebound vs. Vandy

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - No. 13 South Carolina is facing a back-to-the-wall situation and Steve Spurrier hopes his Gamecocks respond in against Vanderbilt on Saturday night.

The Gamecocks (1-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) must defeat the Commodores (1-1, 0-1) or risk falling into a 0-2 hole in the East Division of the Southeastern Conference, something nearly impossible to climb out of in the rugged league. Georgia appeared on the ropes last week after its opening-game defeat at Clemson, yet the ninth-ranked Bulldogs rallied to put up 536 yards on the Gamecocks in a 41-30 victory.

Spurrier called it a "bad coaching day" at Georgia all around. Defensive assistants Kirk Botkin and Deke Adams got into a shouting match on the sidelines in the second half.

The Gamecocks need to regroup against the Commodores.
