Gamecocks will play two ... among other stuff

Stephen Garcia remains South Carolina’s starting quarterback, but Gamecock coach Steve Spurrier said Tuesday he expects freshman Connor Shaw to also play against Auburn on Saturday.
“I would say Connor will play some this week,” Spurrier said Tuesday at his weekly press conference. “I thought he might play against Georgia, but we
got into sort of a running game handing it and off. We have both of them ready to play. Connor will probably get some action somewhere.”

Tigers practice tough
Auburn practiced Tuesday with an emphasis on getting physical.
Afterward, offensive coordinator Guz Malzahn was asked how that was achieved.
“We got after it,” he said.
Malzahn also said that Mario Fannin (shoulder) was able to practice and should be in the rotation at tailback for Saturday’s game.

Gamecocks look to snap streak
South Carolina is on a five-game losing streak in SEC road games.
The Gamecocks have not won an SEC game on the road since beating Kentucky in 2008.

Striking quickly
Of Auburn’s 15 scoring drives in regulation, eight have taken less than two minutes and only one has taken more than four minutes.
Six of the 15 have used four plays or fewer.
