The South Carolina Gamecocks (3-3) will look to snap a two-game losing streak when they host the Furman Paladins (2-4). Last week, South Carolina blew a 38-24 fourth quarter lead to the upstart Kentucky Wildcats. As a team, South Carolina ran for 282 yards and four touchdowns. Running back Mike Davis led the way by gashing Kentucky’s run defense for 183 yards and three touchdowns. Sloppy play by quarterback Dylan Thompson allowed Kentucky to win the game. Late in the fourth quarter, Thompson threw his third interception of the game. Kentucky turned Thompson’s third miscue into the game winning score. Thompson should have an easier time against Furman, a team that has lost four straight games. Fans can expect to pay modest prices if they want to watch this non-conference matchup.
According to TiqIQ, the average price for Furman vs. South Carolina football tickets is currently just $62.78 on the secondary market while the get-in price for the game is $16, which is the cheapest home game of the season.
Furman is coming off a tough 37-31 double overtime loss to Coastal Carolina. As a team, Furman totaled 276 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. Running back Hank McCloud led the way with 94 rushing yards while fullback Ernie Cain scored two touchdowns. While Furman had some success on offense, their defense was unable to stop Coastal Carolina. Coastal Carolina threw for three touchdowns and totaled 213 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. Expect South Carolina to take advantage of Furman’s generous defense by feeding Mike Davis.
