Gamecocks Like Linebacker Change

The University of South Carolina football team (5-5, 3-5 SEC) worked out at the indoor facility on a chilly Tuesday afternoon in Columbia.

A win would make the Gamecocks bowl-eligible for a 10th-straight season. The Gamecock defense played probably its best game of the season last Saturday at Florida. That may have been in part to a change at linebacker, where Skai Moore moved from Will to Mike and Jonathan Walton was inserted into the starting lineup at Will. “They’re both playmakers,” said linebackers coach Kirk Botkin.
