    At least we not playing Clemson. I like the matchup.

    I expect the game to be a close one. South Carolina should be favored in the game, but don’t let that fool you, UConn is 10-2 against the spread this year.

    The only problem with the stats is the level of competition each team plays, you can’t look at total offense and say UConn will win they score more per game, put up more passing and rushing yards etc. USC (which I might add, is the original USC because it was started almost 100 years before southern cal), plays in the SEC, there is no doubt in my mind South Carolina will win this hands down, if they can put up 30+ points on Georgia and Clemson, then in turn hold Alabama and Florida to minimal scoring, yes, South Carolina takes the PapaJohns bowl and the $300k associated with it.

    I am very confident of victory even from 15,000 miles away !

    UCONN is about to face their first real defense of the year. They cant contain Norwood. GO COCKS!
