South Carolina vs. LSU: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

LSU will look to put a major dent in South Carolina's perfect season when they host the Gamecocks in Baton Rouge on Saturday night.

Coming off a huge victory over the Georgia Bulldogs, the road doesn't get any easier for the No. 3 South Carolina Gamecocks when they head to Baton Rouge to take on a LSU Tigers team coming off its first loss of the season on Saturday night.

The No. 9 Tigers (5-1, 1-1 in the SEC) couldn't get much offense going against the Florida Gators last Saturday in a 14-6 loss. Their defense still ranks in the top 10 nationally in points allowed, however, giving up 12.8 per game, good for eighth-best overall.

South Carolina's unbeaten record (6-0, 4-0 in the SEC) remained intact on Saturday after they walloped Georgia, 35-7, at home. The Gamecocks defense ranks fourth in the nation in points allowed, surrendering only 10.5 per game. Offensively, South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw was efficient against Georgia, going 6-for-10 through the air while throwing for 162 yards and two touchdowns.

The trip to LSU represents the first of two tough SEC road games in a row for the Gamecocks, as they will go on to travel to The Swamp to face the Florida Gators on Oct. 20.

According to OddsShark, the line opened this week with the Tigers as four-point favorites.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. CT at Tiger Stadium, and the game will be televised on ESPN.
