As we’ve mentioned throughout the week, Florida tight end Kyle Pitts is possibly the best at the position the Gamecocks face this year and could be the best tight end in the country.

Pitts is a huge weapon for quarterback Kyle Trask and provides a nightmare for defenses given his tight end size and great receiving speed – think Jared Cook for the Gamecocks for those looking for a comp

The question here, which South Carolina defenseman will be tasked with lining up with him in the cover? It seems likely that the Gamecocks are giving different looks in their own way

Dating from his time in Georgia against the Gamecocks at the time, Todd Grantham was known for his approach to defensive football, gleeful in the blitz

Grantham sometimes calls a game like you would the old NCAA video game: When in doubt send home This is oversimplification because Grantham is more calculated than you or I send just the two linebackers in the A gap on PS3 and he’s known for throwing exotic looks at his opponents

There might be no better quarterback in the SEC than Kyle Trask to keep his eyes on the field, extend a game, then find a receiver The pass rush for South Carolina has was a mixed result vs Tennessee with Jarrett Guarantano affected at times but in a clean pocket for other parts of the game

Perhaps the biggest key for the Gamecocks on Saturday afternoon will be to affect Trask in the pocket

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: The 2020 season marks the 10th anniversary of the 2010 team that won the SEC East Division title and continued to appear in the SEC Championship game in Atlanta against the eventual champion national Auburn This is the only title in the Gamecocks division since joining the Southeastern Conference

CAROLINA VS FLORIDA: This is the 41st meeting in a series dating back to 1911 The Gators lead the all-time series, 28-9-3, including a 15-2 advantage at Gainesville and a 12-7-1 lead when playing at Columbia The teams have also met three times at a neutral venue, with Florida winning once and the other two games ending in a tie The Gamecocks have won five of the last 10 games between the two teams after losing 18 of the previous 19 games

JUST WARM UP: The Gamecocks have won five of the last 10 grill battles with the Gators after winning just four of the first 30 meetings between the two schools

LAST YEAR IN COLOMBIA: Kyle Trask threw for a record four career touchdowns as No 9/9 Florida rallied ahead of the Gamecocks, 38-27, on October 19, 2019 at Columbia Carolina held a 20-17 lead heading into the last period, but gave up 21 straight points on three Trask touchdowns in the fourth quarter Gator quarterback completed 21 of 33 passes that day for 200 yards with an interception Tavien Feaster had his best game as a Gamecock, rushing 25 times for 175 yards Ryan Hilinski was just 17 of 35 for 170 yards in loss

LAST TIME IN THE SWAMP: No 19/21 Florida recovered from a 31-14 deficit with less than 20 minutes left in the game to claim a 35-31 win over South Carolina in the Swamp on November 10, 2018 The Gamecocks took a 14-0 lead early on and the Gators didn’t go ahead until four minutes remained in the competition Jake Bentley completed 18 of 28 passes for 239 yards , with Deebo Samuel receiving four passes for 120 yards Jordan Scarlett (159) and Lamical Perine (107) both broke the milestone of the century on the field for the Gators, who beat 367 rushing yards

CAROLINA’S LAST WIN: Jake Bentley had three interceptions to throw for 249 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns on the run as the Gamecocks claimed a 28-20 victory over the Gators and Coach- interim boss Randy Shannon on Nov 11, 2017 at Columbia UNEJ Turnerran 22 times for 136 yards and Mon Denson rushed for the first two touchdowns of his career, as Carolina enjoyed its best offensive game of the season at 469 total yards

NOTES: We will leave the OR designation used by South Carolina in its depth graph last week and also add ZaQuandre White to the depth graph All three played similar shots last week with Harris taking the start

NOTES: The three real freshmen were listed as backups on last week’s depth graph, but it was Josh Vann who was the first reserve receiver to enter Rico Powers also got a few snaps and Luke Doty is expected to play this week

NOTES: The Gamecocks continue to work in their good tackling position, but Jakai Moore, a freshman in a red shirt, is still working with those in practice so far this week

NOTES: With the news that Sherrod Greene is out 4-6 weeks, the LB depth of the Gamecocks is tested right off the bat With Damani Staley sliding into the starting role, this also affects MIKE where Staley was also Spencer replacement Eason-Riddle is probably becoming MIKE’s replacement too

24 Israel Mukuamu – So (TODAY with a groin injury but Muschamp announced on Thursday that he should play)

NOTES: Izzy Mukuamu was day to day this week with a groin injury but Muschamp announced this week that he should play Shilo Sanders slipped to safety on Saturday as a fifth DB when Jammie Robinson played against nickel, but Jaylin Dickerson also got reps

Collyn Taylor: At this point guys, it’s still who knows. What do we know? Florida’s offense is good What don’t we know? Literally Everything Else It might be hard for the South Carolina defense to keep up with the Gators (or not, I’m a reporter, not Zoltar) If the Gamecocks are to win they’ll have to score points and it’s hard to consider that for now as it’s been almost two years since the Gamecocks scored at least 30 points in a game

Wes Mitchell: Is this a South Carolina team that’s going to keep struggling to make enough big plays to win games like most of last season or a brand new team that made correctable mistakes this week? last with a much better defense than either of us thinks right now?

And is this a similar Florida team to last year with really good passing play but questionable running play and actionable defense OR is Florida this year’s version of LSU in the SEC and a team that is ready to take the next step and that it will be really tough for any team – not just Carolina – to beat this season? We should soon start to have answers to some of these questions

Will Helms: Florida have some weaknesses in high school and South Carolina showed last week that they can push the ball up the field and hit big plays if the coaching staff weren’t afraid of it. ‘call for a deep shot South Carolina’s defensive front must have monster play and put pressure on Kyle Trask; otherwise, the Gators and Kyle Pitts are too

Michael Beckham: South Carolina showed some flashes of the attack in the second half against Tennessee, but it’s hard to imagine them being able to follow offensively in this game Florida is explosive in attack and defense of South Carolina looks extremely vulnerable to the defense I think the Gamecocks are getting their share of points, but they just can’t get enough saves to win Florida 45, SC 31
