Breaking down the First South Carolina game!

STEVE SPURRIER Thinking about laying some green on the Thursday night game lineup here are my picks and thoughts on the outcome!

South Carolina at N.C. State

The South Carolina Gamecocks and the North Carolina State Wolfpack will be battling on the gridiron at Carter-Finley Stadium on Thursday in season-opening action.

Odds makers currently have the Wolfpack listed as 5-point favorites versus the Gamecocks, while the game’s total has not yet been posted.

South Carolina looks to get going under Steve Spurrier, he finally has decided on a QB since Chris Smelly forced his hand and transferred to Alabama. Stephen Garcia takes the helm full time this year and looks to have improved decision making.  Can he lead the team? He may have problems with a O-line that gave up 39 sacks last year and lost some WR depth. I predict Garcia to have a good year but I do not think it will start in North Carolina!

South Carolina beat NC State last year but they did not have there defense specialist and got killed in by there lack of defensive play calling.

NC State on the other hand looks like more of a complete team returning much of their offense and Defensive. The front four Defensive lineman are retuning and all seniors I look for them to have  big game at home against a weak offensive line.

NC State started horrible last year and finished as one of the stronger teams, I believe the trend continues and they easily cover the 5 points!

Final Score Prediction: 31-17

The game total has not been posted yet but look for a update when it is.
