The South Carolina Gamecocks (2-2/0-1 SEC) resume Southeastern Conference play by traveling to Nashville, Tenn., to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores (1-3/0-2 SEC). Kickoff at Dudley Field (41,221) is 7 p.m. (eastern time). The game will be televised back to the state of South Carolina on a pay-per-view basis, with a trio of former Gamecock greats calling the action: Todd Ellis (play-by-play), George Rogers (color), and Brad Edwards (color).

A Closer Look
* Both teams are looking for their first SEC victory of the season. Carolina is 0-1 in league play, having lost to Georgia (13-7) on Sept. 14 in Columbia. Vanderbilt is 0-2 in conference action, having lost at Auburn (31-6) and at Ole Miss (45-38).

* The Gamecocks snapped a two-game losing streak on Sept. 21 with a 42-21 triumph over Temple of the BIG EAST Conference. Carolina’s offense was potent, despite only having the ball for 52 snaps and having 13 minutes less in time of possession than the Owls. Quarterback Corey Jenkins continued his improvement, completing 18 of 23 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. The Gamecock defense also came up with two turnovers, including an interception that was returned 69 yards for a touchdown by junior free safety Deandre’ Eiland.
