Aschoff: South Carolina alive and well in SEC East (

Following the Gamecocks’ 38-35 win over the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday, GamecocksOnline reporter Cory Burkarth caught up with senior SEC Writer Edward Aschoff to recap the game. Aschoff gives his thoughts on the Gamecocks’ offense and defense, while previewing the rest of the SEC schedule.

Buoyed by a 38-35 win over sixth-ranked Georgia, the South Carolina Gamecocks (2-1, 1-1 SEC) climbed several notches in both national polls released Sunday. The Gamecocks rose 10 spots in the Associated Press poll to No. 14 and climbed seven spots in the Amway Coaches’ poll to No. 16.

The Gamecocks have been ranked for a school-record 68 consecutive polls, dating back to the second week of the 2010 season. They are tied with Stanford for the fifth-longest current streak in the A.P. Top-25 behind Alabama, LSU, Oregon and Oklahoma.

The Gamecocks will be back in action on Saturday, Sept. 20, when they travel to Nashville to face the Vanderbilt Commodores (1-2, 0-1 SEC). Kick is set for 7:30 p.m. ET (6:30 p.m. CT) and the contest will be televised nationally on the SEC Network with Brent Musburger and Jesse Palmer in the booth and Maria Taylor on the sidelines.
