USC goes into Saturday’s home opener with Navy ranked 10th and favored by 18.5 points. Gamecock head coach Steve Spurrier has never lost to a team outside of a BCS automatic qualifier conference.
Navy is an independent which has a history of springing upsets. Gamecock fans know that only too well. USC was ranked #2 in the country in 1984 when it lost at Navy wrecking a shot at the national championship. The Gamecock players realize they can’t take this game for granted Saturday or their national championship dreams will also go up in smoke.
Saturday’s game will kickoff at 6:00 PM and will be televised on ESPN2.
