Who says you need to win a game to move up in the polls? USC, fresh off its bye week, moved up to 19th in this week’s Associated Press top 25 poll. The Gamecocks were 20th last week. Carolina moved up two places to 20th in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ poll.
USC will face top ranked Alabama Saturday in Columbia. The Crimson Tide are coming off a 31-6 win over Florida. Saturday’s game will kick off at 3:30 and be televised on CBS. ESPN’s College Gameday will also broadcast live from Columbia this weekend.
