South Carolina Gamecocks at North Carolina Tar Heels
South Carolina vs. North Carolina, Total 63.5: This is another game in which the scoreboard can be expected to work overtime on Saturday afternoon in this neutral site contest at Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers.
South Carolina switched its offensive scheme to an uptempo offense midway through last season and it paid off. The Gamecocks’ scoring went up from that point on. They bring back a senior QB in Jake Bentley and the offense should be even better and get the benefit of facing a weak North Carolina defense.
North Carolina wants to play as fast as possible on offense under new head coach Mack Brown and OC Phil Longo who was known for extremely fast paced, Air Raid attacks at Ole Miss and Baylor. South Carolina’s defense was mediocre at best last season. Expect points in bunches. OVER
