South Carolina Gamecocks College Football Betting

Last year as the South Carolina Gamecocks rookie head coach, Shane Beamer enjoyed quite a honeymoon. Beamer led the Gamecocks to a winning season and bowl win. None of that was expected when he arrived. But with that success came increased expectations for the 2022 campaign. And South Carolina has been off more than on after one month of play. Their 48-7 blowout home loss to the defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs was a disaster. And quite revealing. South Carolina is nowhere near ready to compete at that level. And Beamer had to apologize for his politically incorrect tirade when a ceremony recognizing female athletes and Title IX went too long and delayed the game.

South Carolina Gamecocks Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the South Carolina Gamecocks of the SEC will host the FCS South Carolina State Bulldogs. Kickoff time at Noon ET with television coverage on SEC Network.

This game will be a challenge for all handicappers. Sharps don’t want to make the big lay with a mediocre South Carolina program struggling on both sides of the line. But fans hesitate to step out with the FCS South Carolina State Bulldogs against an SEC program. Even South Carolina.

On the whole, Beamer needs nothing less than a blowout win. Anything less will not go over well with fans. An SEC team is expected to annihilate FCS opponents. Regardless of anything else. And Beamer wants to change the narrative and get positive attention for his struggling program.

Last game, the South Carolina State Bulldogs lost 41-27 against the North Carolina A&T Aggies. South Carolina State has a record of 1-2 straight up. In their previous game against an FBS program this season, South Carolina State was routed at the UCF Knights 56-10.

Bhayshul Tuten led the way for North Carolina A&T, showcasing his running and pass-catching ability. He rushed for two touchdowns while catching another, exposing the holes in South Carolina State’s defense. The team’s potent offense accumulated an impressive 439 total yards. But it wasn’t all positive. North Carolina A&T fumbled three times in the game.

South Carolina State’s run defense was a key issue against the Aggies. They gave up 6.3 yards per carry to North Carolina A&T rushers. Losing 109 yards to penalties certainly also played a role in their struggles. Corey Fields led the way for SC State, throwing for four touchdowns in the air.

North Carolina A&T snapped a three-game losing streak with the win. It was a different year for South Carolina State but the same result. They continue to stumble when the Aggies are on its schedule. Their losing streak in this matchup continues to grow.
