The University of South Carolina football team worked out at the Bluff Road practice fields Monday night as they continued preparations for Thursday night’s SEC battle with fourth-ranked Ole Miss. Game time is set for 7:45 p.m. at Williams-Brice Stadium with a national ESPN audience watching.
“Hopefully we’ll be ready to play our best game of the year Thursday night,” said head coach Steve Spurrier following Monday’s two-hour session. “We’re getting some guys back on defense. Hopefully they’ll be healthy. Maybe we can put together our best game – that’s what we’re going to try to do.”
Defensive backs Chris Culliver (shoulder) and Antonio Allen (slight concussion) were held out of practice on Monday, but are expected to be ready to play on Thursday. Holder Stephen Flint has an infection in his arm and did not practice Monday but is also expected to be ready on Thursday, according to the Head Ball Coach.
The Gamecocks will return to the practice fields on Tuesday afternoon.
