My Prediction: Despite losing star RB Marcus Lattimore in Week 7, the Gamecocks still won 5 of their last 6 games and still posses a potent running game. Nebraska comes in with a very good running attack led by QB Taylor Martinez. The difference in this game is the defense. Even though the Cornhuskers are good, South Carolina is 3rd in the Nation in yards allowed right behind LSU and Alabama. I think the Gamecocks defense will create problems and turnovers and will lead them to victory.
South Carolina -2.5
