South Carolina's Deebo Samuel may be out for season with broken ankle

South Carolina's Deebo Samuel may be out for season with broken ankle

SC receiver Deebo Samuel had surgery on his fractured left leg Sunday and Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said the Southeastern Conference's touchdowns leader will miss an extended period of time. Kyle Shurmur threw for a touchdown and ran for another to lead Vanderbilt to a 3-0 record for the first time since 2011. "What, like we didn't get better?" It helps more that SC is the better team in this game.

Additionally, key players such as Jake Bentley, Deebo Samuel, Skai Moore, Rico Dowdle and Ty'Son Williams were not on the field for the Gamecocks when Kentucky beat them in 2016. It's an 11 play 67 year drive that takes 5:32.

"Quite honestly, we were exhausted of it", he said. The win means Kentucky also keeps their win streak over SC alive, which is now at four games.

"He's really good with the ball in his hands and he's also really good when it's not in his hands", coach Will Muschamp told the media. SC used a conservative game plan to grind out the victory over Missouri. "Winning is what matters".

But Saturday's 23-13 defeat to the Wildcats wasn't even the biggest loss USC suffered on that fateful day. After fending off a late comeback against Southern Miss, the Wildcats needed a come-from-behind effort of their own to knock off FCS member Eastern Kentucky last week at home. However, the Gamecocks weren't able to take advantage as they missed a 52 yard field goal, and had a pass intercepted by Mike Edwards.

"I don't want to comment much on the status part of it", Muschamp said. You never know with these surgeries.

After struggling on their first three drives, Kentucky found their rhythm with back-to-back long, scoring drives capped off by Benny Snell touchdowns.

Samuel scored his sixth touchdown Saturday on a 68-yard catch.

Kentucky: The Wildcats could be for real in an SEC East without any true powers. SC also leads the series 8-4-1 in Columbia.

SC doesn't quit. Instead, after next week's contest with Louisiana Tech, they'll face a hard stretch of league games including contests at Texas A&M and Tennessee.

Coming into tonight, Gamecock opponents were only converting 41.2 percent of their third downs. The Wildcats finished 9 of 16 when faced with third down. They are keeping South Carolina's offense off the field. "We're not going to have excuses in this organization".

Kentucky played without starting linebacker Jordan Jones, who was out with a banged up shoulder.

SC takes on Louisiana Tech, which is led by former Gamecocks offensive coordinator Skip Holtz, on Saturday.
