The Michigan Wolverines didn’t quite have the same success that they had in Brady Hoke’s first season as head coach at Michigan. The Wolverines started the season with a big loss to Alabama and ended the regular season with a loss to rival Ohio State. Still, the Wolverines are in a New Year’s Day bowl. South Carolina lost to LSU and Florida and swept the rest of their slate. The Gamecocks aren’t quite the same without Marcus Lattimore, but this team is still very talented. Let’s take a look at this year’s Outback Bowl.
It’s the battle for the Palmetto State, and it may very well be a battle for a BCS bowl game as well on Saturday night. The Clemson Tigers will look to end a three-game skid on the college football betting lines against the South Carolina Gamecocks.
Arkansas expected to be in the national title picture this year, but everything went wrong in the offseason and that has continued right through the season. John L. Smith has become one of the least popular men in Arkansas, and the team is now 4-5. South Carolina has fallen on some hard times of late, but they are still 7-2 and ranked eighth in the nation. Steve Spurrier’s team looks to pick up another win this Saturday.

The Vols are on the ropes right now, as they have just three wins through seven games and need to find three more at some point over the course of the rest of the season if they are going to save Head Coach Derek Dooley’s job.
South Carolina came painfully close to knocking-off No.6 LSU last Saturday in a 23-21 loss as a three-point underdog on the road.

The Bulldogs are a perfect 3-0 SU in conference play with dominating victories over Missouri, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee in which they outscored their opponents by a combined 140-67.

Steve Spurrier and his South Carolina Gamecocks are all the way up to number six in this week’s college football rankings. The Gamecocks looked shaky in the season opener at Vanderbilt, but they have gotten stronger each game and last week’s 31-10 win over Missouri was impressive. Kentucky is just 1-3 so far this year, but they have given South Carolina and some other big SEC schools trouble at home over the past few seasons.
The Missouri Tigers are finding out very quickly that life in the SEC is extremely tough.
