Improved South Carolina Gamecocks Move into AP Top-25

Coming off back-to-back SEC wins at Kentucky and against Texas A&M, the South Carolina Gamecocks (5-2, 2-2 SEC) have moved into the Top-25 in both the Associated Press and AFCA Coaches polls this week, coming in at No. 25 in both rankings.

Winners of four-straight games, its longest winning streak since ending the 2013 season with six-straight wins, South Carolina is ranked in the A.P. poll for the first time since Sept. 4, 2018, when they checked in at No. 24 after a season-opening win over Coastal Carolina. Other than that one week in 2018, the Gamecocks have not been ranked in the Top-25 in the A.P. since the 2014 season when they were ranked in five-consecutive polls to open the season.

The Gamecocks will look to extend their winning streak and become bowl eligible this week when they host the Missouri Tigers (3-4, 1-3 SEC) in a 4 pm ET Homecoming contest at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia. SEC Network will televise the annual SEC Eastern Division matchup that will determine the winner of the Mayor’s Cup.
