Improved South Carolina Brings Momentum to LSU for Saturday Night Betting

South Carolina Gamecocks vs. LSU Tigers MLB betting preview

The relationship of South Carolina and Will Muschamp was based on desperation.  Following the 2015 season, the Gamecocks needed a coach.  Preferably an experienced one from the SEC.  At that time Muschamp was fired by Florida.  There he cleaned up Urban Meyer’s mess.  However, he never came close to matching Meyer’s College football betting success. Muschamp landed on his feet at South Carolina.  Recruiting and his SEC experience was the difference. Following a 2016 mark of 9-4 Muschamp was given a huge raise and extension.  Since then the program has struggled.   South Carolina visits LSU on Saturday.
