The No. 11 Gamecocks are back in the Southeastern Conference race thanks to a loss by Georgia. Star defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney is back in coach Steve Spurrier's good graces. And the offense is gaining yards at a record pace.
Still, South Carolina can't get complacent. They will likely have to beat Tennessee on Saturday as well as No. 22 Florida and upstart 14th-ranked Missouri to win the SEC East, and get help with another loss by No. 15 Georgia.
Senior quarterback Connor Shaw isn't getting complacent. He is leading an offense that averages better than 486 yards a game. Spurrier hasn't had a team average better than 400 yards a game in his previous eight seasons at South Carolina.
