SEC Network analyst likes the Gamecocks to win big this weekend over Tigers

South Carolina is a double-digit underdog heading into Saturday’s rivalry matchup against Clemson.

But that hasn’t stopped SEC Network analyst Roman Harper from picking the Gamecocks this weekend. Harper made his comments on SEC Now when host Alyssa Lang asked for his prediction on the game,

“I’m calling my shot, South Carolina is gonna win this game and they might win by double digits. I mean barely double digits but that it will happen,” Harper said.

Harper went on to say for the Gamecocks to win that receiver Josh Vann and running back Zaquandre White will need to have big games and quarterback Jason Brown will need to not turn it over and take his shots down the field in the passing game.

“You need to run the football, be specific in how you do it and now Jason Brown. Protect the football, protect the football,” Harper said.

South Carolina enters the game with a six-game losing streak to Clemson. The two teams didn’t play last year because of COVID-19. The Gamecocks are coming off a 21-17 win over Auburn while Clemson knocked off Wake Forest, 47-28.

South Carolina opened as a 14-point underdog but the line has dropped to as low as 10 points by some oddsmakers.
