WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

The Gamecocks dropped to 2-3 (0-3 Southeastern Conference) Saturday with a 24-10 loss at Missouri. Despite being led by preseason All-SEC wide receiver Pharoh Cooper, South Carolina has struggled offensively this season. The Gamecocks have scored 22 points or less in four of their five games, searching for steady quarterback play. South Carolina allows 170 yards per game rushing (163 Saturday at Mizzou), not a good sign against LSU’s run-oriented offense.
