South Carolina redshirt senior WR Deebo Samuel caught four passes for 120 yards in Saturday's 35-31 loss to Florida.

Samuel (6'/202) was unable to find the end zone in this one, but did major damage with his four grabs regardless. In addition to his work as a receiver, the redshirt senior also put up 78 yards on a quartet of kick returns. For the campaign as a whole, now, Samuel has posted a 43-527-5 receiving line across nine games played. He should be able to find room work against Chattanooga next weekend.

South Carolina junior QB Jake Bentley completed 18-of-28 passes for 239 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 35-31 loss to Florida.

Bentley got South Carolina off to a nice start, throwing both of his touchdown passes in the first quarter. The Gamecocks built up a 31-14 lead midway through the third quarter before Florida got on their comeback horse to eventually take a 35-31 lead late in the final quarter of play. Bentley and company would get the ball back with a chance for a go-ahead touchdown, but the junior ended up throwing a brutal interception on SC's final offensive drive of the game to essentially seal the deal for the opponent. South Carolina will have an easy one against Chattanooga next weekend, with contests against Clemson and Akron remaining on the regular-season schedule after that.

South Carolina junior RB Rico Dowdle (leg) is suited up in advance of Saturday's game against Florida.

Dowdle is nursing a leg injury sustained against Ole Miss last weekend. Looks like he will try to give it a go versus the Gators barring a late setback.
Nov 10 - 11:29 AM

South Carolina sophomore WR Chad Terrell (knee) is not dressed in advance of Saturday's game against Florida.

Terrell tore his ACL in spring practice and has yet to see the field this season. At this late stage in the game, he might just be out for the rest of the campaign.
Nov 10 - 11:27 AM

South Carolina redshirt freshman WR Randrecous Davis (undisclosed) is not dressed in advance of Saturday's game against Florida.

Davis (5'10/181) is set to miss his second consecutive game. There is no immediate timetable for his return to action at this juncture.
Nov 10 - 11:24 AM

South Carolina junior RB Rico Dowdle (leg) was "in the sand pit doing light work" during Tuesday's practice.

Dowdle isn't quite ready to be a full participant in practice. He's probably got 48 hours to get there in order to be active for Saturday's game against Florida. Dowdle left Saturday's game against Mississippi in the first half with the injury and didn't return.
Nov 6 - 1:57 PM

South Carolina redshirt sophomore RB Ty'Son Williams says he'll play against Florida on Saturday despite a broken hand.

Williams has a cast on the hand, but all of his fingers are free. He'll continue to work in off the bench as a complimentary option.
Nov 6 - 1:25 PM

South Carolina redshirt sophomore RB Ty'Son Williams carried the ball seven times for 30 yards with a score and caught three passes for 105 yards in the 48-44 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.

A bigger game through the air than on the ground for Williams, but he was able to find the end zone for the second straight game, and fourth score overall. He briefly left the game with a head injury, but he was able to return for the Gamecocks. Williams and the Gamecocks get Florida next Saturday.
Nov 3 - 4:01 PM

South Carolina junior WR Bryan Edwards picked up four catches for 105 yards with a touchdown in a 48-44 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.

Not a huge game in terms of catches, but Edwards (6'3/220) made the most of his limited receptions; scoring on a 75-yard dime from Jake Bentley to give the Gamecocks a 24-13 lead in the middle of the second quarter. Edwards now has six touchdowns on the year, and it's the second time the talented junior has gone over the century mark. He'll try to improve on both next Saturday against Florida.
Nov 3 - 3:59 PM

South Carolina redshirt junior RB Mon Denson ran for 102 yards on 12 carries in a 48-44 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.

Denson (5'10/212) came into the year with 68 rushing yards. He leaves with more than that. In fact, he picked up more than that on just one carry, a big 69-yard carry that set up a Gamecocks' score. Outside of that he didn't have many big runs, but he did convert a few first downs. South Carolina picked up a few injuries at the tailback position in this one, so Denson might get more carries next Saturday against Florida.
Nov 3 - 3:55 PM

South Carolina junior QB Jake Bentley completed 22-of-32 passes for 363 yards with two touchdowns in a 48-44 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.

Who needs defense, anyway? This was an offensive explosion on Saturday, with the Gamecocks hanging on for a big victory for their chances to qualify for a bowl. Bentley also added a rushing touchdown, and he didn't throw an interception for the first time since the season-opening win against Coastal Carolina. If Bentley plays like this going forward, the Gamecocks can give a lot of teams trouble. He'll face a much, much tougher defense next Saturday when they take on Georgia.
Nov 3 - 3:53 PM

South Carolina junior RB Rico Dowdle (leg) exited to the locker room in the first half of Saturday's game against Ole Miss.

Dowdle had to be helped to the sideline after a tackle and was having issues putting weight on his left leg. He was looked at in the injury tent and then headed back to the locker room. Dowdle ran for 140 yards last week against Tennessee.
Nov 3 - 1:41 PM

South Carolina sophomore WR Chad Terrell (knee) will miss the game against Mississippi on Saturday.

Terrell hasn't played all year after tearing an ACL in spring pracfices.
Nov 3 - 11:35 AM

South Carolina and Akron will make up their respective games canceled by weather in a contest scheduled for Dec. 1.

This is a fine marriage of convenience. Akron had their opener against Nebraska weathered out, while Hurricane Florence forced a cancelation of South Carolina's game against Marshall later in September. With both SC and Akron out of contention to play in their respective conference title games, this one scheduled pretty easily.

South Carolina HC Will Muschamp says junior Bryan Edwards (ankle) is "fine" in advance of this week's game against Mississippi.

No worries about Edwards' availability here. He suffered a minor ankle sprain over the weekend against Tennessee. Edwards has dealt with nagging ankle injuries over the past month, so this is something to keep an eye on.
