COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Steve

Spurrier says while No. 20 South Carolina won't be the main attraction this weekend at fifth-ranked Missouri, he's hopeful the Gamecocks can drag themselves and several other Southeastern Conference East teams back in the divisional race with a win.

Spurrier said Tuesday the Gamecocks (5-2, 3-2 SEC) could get back on track against Missouri (7-0, 3-0) after losing 23-21 at Tennessee this past weekend. A South Carolina win would also open the door for the other East teams like the Vols, Georgia and Florida, who trail the Tigers by two games in the division.

Spurrier's not worried about all of that, just improving an offense that managed just 15 yards in the final quarter and will most likely start backup quarterback Dylan Thompson because of Connor Shaw's knee injury.
