Match-by-match predictions for the Gamecocks season
South Carolina football game-by-game predictions for the 2022 season are here, a summer installment we’ll be continuing daily for every SEC team starting with Shane Beamer and Gamecocks. Every conference team is chasing Georgia and Alabama and there are several just outside the national conversation, including the Gamecocks, who will have a say in how the championships are decided this fall.
Coaching circles say transitioning college football programs are showing their biggest leap by the end of Year 2 around a new regime. In South Carolina’s case, Beamer hopes the new campaign ends with a quick win count as the Gamecocks continue to push to where they want to be.
The arrival of spencer ratter and a star-studded transfer class gives hope for a program that was the only college football team last season to win games with four different starting quarterbacks. Consistency is needed and South Carolina believes it found that in Rattler, a former five-star rookie who played as a freshman at Oklahoma before being traded after his sophomore season.
Here’s a look at South Carolina’s upcoming schedule game-by-game and predictions for each, culminating with a final record and potential bowl setting.
